Destination Marketing Drives Hotel Bookings Workshop

The workshop explores the symbiotic relationship between consumer exposure in destination/tourism advertising and hotel/OTA advertising in the digital space. Learn how

  • destination advertisers can generate concrete measures of success
  • OTA and hotel advertisers can improve their own KPIs
  • the consumer's digital path-to-purchase for travel products online changes over time, and how that journey differs based on the type of product (air travel, hotel, OTA)
  • consumer exposure to destination and tourism marketing affects bookings on OTA and hotel sites, including the duration of stay and amount spent

This exclusive workshop builds on Rocket Fuel’s recently released research in the category: 2014 Digital Tourism & Travel Guide - The Link Between Destination Travel Ads and OTAs.
