Attractions@Arival — Improve Your Profits & the Guest Experience with Dynamic Pricing & Revenue Management
Dynamic pricing and revenue management — making frequent pricing changes to optimize revenue and bookings — have been a mainstay of other travel sectors for years. Now, it’s beginning to take hold in tours, activities, and attractions.
This workshop, geared for ticketed attractions as well as larger tour and activity operators, walks through the fundamentals of revenue management, how to think about applying revenue management relative to the unique attributes of your business and how you can grow your sales, profits, and predictability for your operation.
Dynamic Pricing & Revenue Management is part of Attractions@Arival — a series of sessions designed specifically for attractions and large operators.
Virtual Reality and the Visitor Experience
Virtual reality shows enormous promise to enhance the visitor experience at attractions as well as to create new immersive experiences, but it is not without pitfalls. This talk from a leading virtual reality attraction in Germany — TimeRide — walks through both potential and practical applications of the technology in tourism as well as the valuable lessons it has learned.
Understanding the Importance of Connectivity, Presented by Octo
Operators use booking and ticketing companies to connect to local and global distributors, but connectivity is not easy, and in our industry it’s not complete. Join this session to learn about the importance of connectivity, the challenges facing our industry, and the potential of having a technical industry standard to make connectivity easier.
This is an introductory session designed for non-technical and technical staff at operators, attractions, distributors and tech providers who are interested in connectivity and the Open Connectivity for Operators initiative to advance better connectivity for our industry.
