Hello again.

The global hotel industry is battling some tough times. To get a better idea of the industry's outlook for 2010 and the role you see distribution playing in your efforts, we're inviting hotel professionals to take a quick (10 minute) online survey. In exchange, we'll send you a complimentary summary of our findings after we complete gathering the data.

Who's eligible?

  • You must work for a hotel organziation. We're seeking participants at the corporate or brand level, at a property, or at a management company. For this study, we're not able to accept participants from third-party intermediaries, or from other industry sectors like airlines, GDSs, rental car agencies, etc. That's why we're asking you to contact us (info below), rather than posting a link from here to take the survey.
  • Your role must include a meaningful amount of responsibility for or involvement in your hotel's:
    • eBusiness/eCommerce
    • Distribution
    • Sales/marketing
    • Revenue management
    • Owners, GMs, and hotel managers are also welcome to participate

The larger the base of respondents, the more useful the research will be to everyone. I sincerely hope you'll participate. There's no obligation beyond taking the survey. All survey responses will be aggregated. We keep your responses confidential, and we don't share or use your email address for any commercial activities.

To participate, please email me: hharteveldt (at) forrester dot com. Sorry for that funky way of presenting my email address; I'm just trying to avoid the email spam bots.

As always, thanks for your time.
