Tomorrow starts now with HSMAI Europe

Direct distribution tactics leading to recovery
Join the dialogue and meet:
Pablo Delgado – CEO at MIRAI and member of the HSMAI Europe Customer & Distribution Advisory Board
Pablo is the CEO of Mirai, a leading Distribution Consultancy & Technology provider. While studying Computer Engineering, he developed one of the first Internet Booking Engines (IBE) back in 1997, which soon started helping hotels jump into the Internet era and understand how online distribution works. With more than 20 years in the industry, he understands the changing dynamics of online distribution (that occur every year) very well and has become an expert in advising hotels on how to dis-intermediate and improve their GOP. He also ended up mastering the new metasearch layer that just arrived, which will compete both with major OTA and Google. Back in 2006 Pablo graduated from the University of Virginia, Darden School of Business.
