Direct Booking Summit: Americas opens its doors in Dallas


After months of anticipation, the third annual Direct Booking Summit: Americas opens its doors today in Dallas. We knew we had to produce something special after our New York event last year, so we've been pulling out all the stops: stay tuned for superstar speakers (think IHG, Choice, TripAdvisor and Skyscanner), agenda-setting panel discussions and the world's first Direct Booking Bowling tournament. Did we mention the live data analysis clinics and rooftop pool? Read on to find out how you can dive in...

Still not sure? Maybe you'll be convinced by these happy delegates from our 2018 European Summit...

"Really appreciate the international and open group of people happy to share their experiences and know-how" - Keijo Enni, Hestia Hotel Group

"It was my first time attending and what a great event! So much energy, positivity and focus on what can be achieved together, rather than blaming OTAs and focusing on what can't be" - Darryl Walker, SACO The Serviced Apartment Company

"I came into the event expecting a bit of sales pitch from both Triptease and the event sponsors but it was completely the opposite. All of the speakers were there to provide genuine experience and value to those attending without any expectation for further business" - Charlie Delamare, Palmers Lodge

"Really inspiring conference, with lots of good presentations and lots of inspiring ideas, which I will for sure pass to my team. The speakers made everyone feel included into the topics and the suggestions given were adaptable for different situations. The Triptease team is absolutely lovely and made the two days super smooth" - Feredica Rizzo, Hotel AbanoRitz
