As the festival season comes to an end, offices see holidaymakers back at their desks and school terms are well underway, it’s a good time to take stock for the coming autumn and winter activities.

Here at ASAP we’re already gearing up for the big September Meeting, which is going to see all sorts of announcements and launches, and of course the annual Convention is coming on fast, in December.

This week we’re going to run a refresher about why you should attend, and why now is the perfect time to get your discounted tickets and put the dates firmly in the diary – only because, when we started counting down towards the end of the early bird rates for tickets, it was back at the start of the summer and lots of people will have been away, or were thinking they had loads of time so they didn’t need to panic!

Our Day 1:  Campfire A session will be a good one – Global Mobility Trends, and how they present untapped profit-driving opportunities within the sector.

How ready is your revenue strategy?

This session will be led by Ally Northfield, Managing Director of Revenue by Design and principal author of the Revenue by Design revenue management training programmes, and will cover the rise of the digital nomad, changing family and home living trends, and a global marketplace where the best employee for the role may not be located in the same country or even the same continent.

Delegates will be asked to consider if their revenue strategy is set to drive optimal performance in this period of transformative change.

Ally comments “Revenue by Design is delighted to be participating in the 2019 ASAP Convention. The serviced apartment sector is evolving at such pace, the opportunity to take two days out to meet with key decision makers and debate the issues, challenges and opportunities facing the sector cannot afford to be missed.”

Our Day 1:  Session 4 sees how to tap into the purple pound – cracking access for all, with VisitBritain.

There is a compelling business case for making tourism venues and experiences inclusive. People with health conditions & impairments and their travelling companions spend around £12 billion* on trips in England each year, but an additional £117 million could be generated from additional trips if accessibility was improved.

Ross Caladine, Head of Business Support for VisitEngland will lead this key session covering the business case for accessible tourism and providing top tips to help businesses in the serviced apartment sector offer great experiences for people with accessibility requirements.  The session will also introduce the new VisitEngland and VisitScotland Accessibility Guides initiative as well as giving delegates top tips on how they can tap into the purple pound!
