After the success of the recent 2017 APAC Revenue Management Summit, there is much interest and demand for the Summit to run again in 2018 and dates for next year will be released shortly.
This year’s Summit was held at Rydges Melbourne 29-30 August and was an overwhelming success. Delegate numbers doubled on the previous year’s attendance attracting the support of over 170 delegates and 20 partners.
Headlined “ADAPT & THRIVE”, the Summit was planned and hosted by the Australian Revenue Management Association (ARMA) in support with the Accommodation Association of Australia (AAoA) and Tourism Industry Aotearoa (TIA) as industry partners.
Delegates were treated to a choice of three revenue management focused workshops and ten thought leader discussion sessions led by leading industry experts with delegates grouped across a number of smaller “hubs”. The thought leader sessions fostered greater engagement and educational insight for delegates on all the key topics impacting revenue maximisation and profit opportunities.
Once again, ARMA used revenue management practices when pricing its Summit, offering flexible pricing based around the varied needs of delegates. This allowed ARMA to maximise demand and revenue for the event which saw a strong mix of local, interstate and international representation. The Summit content was pitched to appeal to all accommodation operators and delegates included a diverse range of operators representing many different types of accommodation models from chains, apartment properties, motels and holiday parks.
This event would not have been possible without the support of our platinum partners – Sabre Hospitality Solutions, IDeaS Revenue Solutions and Expedia. ARMA would like to thank all our event and industry partners with special mention to our Lanyard Partner Amadeus, Barista Cart courtesy of InnQuest Australia, Networking Partners InTouch Data and CMS Hospitality, and Media Partners accomnews and HM.
The Australian Revenue Management Association (ARMA) is an independent organisation supporting our industry with revenue management education via their online Yield Academy, nationally accredited short course, face to face workshops and the annual APAC Revenue Management Summit.

Some testimonials from this year’s event –
"Thank you, Melissa and team, for an excellent two-day Summit, great speakers from the industry and a chance to meet market leading vendors/partners. No doubt, we are taking away a lot more than we had expected before coming up. Look forward to the next one."
"Wow, it has been the most thought-provoking content I've seen at a conference in a long time. Last year was good, this year next level. Maybe I know more this year, but the speakers were fantastic, the vendors fantastic, venue was excellent and catering awesome"
"It was awesome to be a part of this well-planned and well-delivered event. The topics were thought stimulating and the time slots, just enough to keep everyone's attention. Congratulations once again!"
"Just a quick note to thank you for an enlightening and inspiring 2 days!
All that upside!! And so great to see Holiday Parks participating in numbers :)
Looking forward to more opportunities to learn & improve our revenue management. I will be a definite repeat delegate"
