Paris, France, October 12, 2012

Richard Kefs opens two days of business sessions specifically designed for the independent, luxury and boutique hotel sector at Independent Hotel 12 

FastBooking co-Founder and Executive President, Richard Kefs, will address hoteliers at the opening session of Independent Hotel 12, a new UK trade show focusing specifically on the concerns of independent, luxury and boutique hotels.  FastBooking is one of the world’s leading e-marketing and online technology solutions providers for the hospitality industry.

The complexity of online distribution for independent hotels can be almost baffling: GDS, Internet, direct versus indirect distribution, social media…the stakes are enormous. Where do you start? What should you do,” says Richard Kefs. “Working with the right partner hoteliers can harness this complexity and profit from its potential.

FastBooking Vice President, Market Development, Peter Fitzgerald, will take the stage on October 17.

Independent luxury and boutique hotels are demanding. We have worked with many well-known UK hotels over the last 12 years. One of the reasons we attract prestigious properties as clients is certainly our technology. But more than that, our commitment to service matches theirs. Our client hotels look to FastBooking as a partner who will work with them to build a successful online strategy,” says Peter Fitzgerald.

Richard Kefs will be speaking at 9:4am, October 16 on “Coping with online distribution complexity.” Peter Fitzgerald will be speaking at 11:15am, October 17 on “Creative Agility – The Independent Advantage”.

FastBooking will be meeting hoteliers during the show at stand IH84.

Independent Hotel 12 runs from October 16-17, 2012 at Olympia London. For more information, see http://independenthotelshow.co.uk/
