The Cornell-Nanyang Institute of Hospitality Management (CNI) will host the first ‘Thought Leaders in Revenue Management Roundtable’, sponsored by IDeaS Advantage. Dr. Sheryl E. Kimes, Singapore Tourism Board’s first Distinguished Professor in Asian Hospitality Management will lead the session.

An exclusive group of invited participants including senior executives from the IHG, Marriot, Raffles, Carlson, Millennium Hotels, Fairmont, Swissôtel, Minor Group, Revmax, SynXis, Revenue Management Solutions and Langham hotel groups, who represent a cross section of the Asian hospitality industry, will discuss issues concerning non-traditional revenue management and talent development.

Two fundamental questions will be addressed: “How can hotels apply revenue management to other parts of the hotel such as function space, spas and restaurants” and “How can hotels best recruit, develop and retain top RM employees?”

Dr. Kimes, a professor of operations management at the Cornell Hotel School will be based at CNI for three months each year, over the next five years, said, "I'm looking forward to the roundtable and the opportunity to meet many of the Revenue Management leaders in the Asian hospitality industry. I recently completed a survey on what Asian and North American hotel Revenue Management professionals see as the latest trends and issues within revenue management Two key issues were identified: how to deal with HR issues in Revenue management and how to apply Revenue management practices to other departments within the hotel. We will cover both of these at the roundtable."

The program will commence with a welcome reception on the evening of Tuesday, May 27th and then on Wednesday, May 28th, participants will spend a day involved in intense and invigorating roundtable discussion sessions at the Cornell-Nanyang Institute of Hospitality Management campus.
