PATA and STR Organise Training Programme on Data Analytics

PATA has partnered STR to organise a training programme on analytics.

 The “Certification in Advanced Hotel and Tourism Analytics (CAHTA)” will tale place 19-20 November 2018 at the PATA Engagement Hub, Bangkok, Thailand.

 The registration fee is USD699 for PATA members, USD899 for Chapter members and USD1,099 for non-members.

CAHTA is a certification focused on data research for hospitality industry professionals geared towards hotel revenue managers, general managers, corporate staff, research professionals, employees of consulting and investment firms and educators who teach related topics or students with similar career aspirations.

“Data is essential for any organization to stay competitive in today’s market, however it is meaningless without proper analysis and understanding. With more than 2.5 quintillion bytes of consumer data produced every day, it can be a daunting task to make any sense of it,” said PATA CEO, Mario Hardy. “Our collaboration with STR to provide practical training in extracting quality data and analysis, is in alignment with our human capital development strategy in enhancing the tourism workforce and facilitating quality educational opportunities.”

Speakers at the two-day training programme include Duane Vinson, Vice President and the Assistant Director, STR SHARE Center, USA and Steve Hood, Vice President of Research, STR, USA.

The training provides a step-by-step tutorial on how to design and implement a professional-level research project - specifically a Market Study for a major destination city. Participants will gain practical skills in extracting and analysing data in order to identify historic trends and consumer patterns through foundational metrics and methodologies used by the hotel industry. Participants will also learn how to interpret and present analytic results through various methods of data visualisation. Finally, participants will gain hands-on practice by developing their own research project and presenting their findings to the group to complete the certification.

Steve Hood, Vice President of Research, STR, USA, said, “We are excited to be teaming with PATA to deliver this workshop. No better way for a hotel or tourism industry professional to gain valuable hands-on experience analysing data to support critical business decisions.”
