Europcar Austria

From Laurenz Groebner, Revenue Manager, Vienna.

With help of thePEC, I have identified the spring break dates of the UK. For the last week of May, I have set a specific dynamic approach with fantastic results. The additional revenue generated during this special offer paid 100 times the annual of the subscription and paid it for the next 5 years!

Laurenz’s highly recommended Europcar moment: driving through the snow-covered mountains of Salzburg and enjoying a breathtaking view of the Fortress Hohensalzburg guarantees unforgettable impressions.

From Yannick Gavelle, CEO, Paris.

The PEC gives us various advantages: tracking future demand for our partner hotels giving them information to play on their pricing and alerting them on upcoming events. In addition, this web application is a great tool to evaluate attractiveness of a city and therefore orient our sales actions to affiliate more hotels to our network providing them added-value service.

From Francois Albenque, Director of Revenue, Paris.

The iDTGV rail service, that was launched in late 2004, is the first low cost high speed train on the French railway network offering a new way of travelling in train. You feel like playing: with iDzap you have games, consoles, DVDs and magazines. Fancy a chat: You and your neighbors can head for the iDzinc bar. Need a break: relax in the iDzen area, but shhh…. there are people sleeping. Choose your mood, everything is included. iDTGV services take over entire trains running on 16 routes from Paris to eastbound, southbound and westbound of France. One way tickets to all our destinations start at 19 euros, whatever the time of year.

Francois highly recommended moment: make myself comfortable in the idZen area of the train, no noise, I can have a nice nap during the journey.

InterContinental Madrid

From Balazs Szentmary, Director of Revenue Management, Madrid.

We use the PEC since it is a key source of market intelligence that provides us with relevant and up-to-date information. I have found a great help in the timely alerts, which allow us to be aware of business opportunities even at times when other relevant issues keep us busy, so we do not lose momentum.

The InterContinental Madrid, a luxury landmark on Paseo de la Castellana. An 18 th-century palace was the inspiration for InterContinental Madrid, which is situated on one of the city’s most famed thoroughfares. Located in the cultural and business district, the Prado Museum, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, the Real Madrid Museum, Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, the elegant Serrano shopping street, and the Royal Palace of Madrid are all a few minutes away.

Balazs highly recommended moment: the guided 'Tapas Tour’ walking you through Madrid’s landmarks while you enjoy Tapas & Wine where local people do.

Virgin Atlantic, United Kingdow

From Sue Allen, Industry Partnership Manager, Head Office, Gatwick.

Since it was founded in 1984, Virgin Atlantic Airways has become Britain second largest airline serving 30 destinations. Virgin Atlantic is the quintessential Virgin story. It has every ingredient: the small newcomer taking on the giant and complacent establishment, the people champion introducing better service and value for money for passengers with a reputation for quality and innovative product development.

Sue’s highly recommended Virgin Atlantic moment: Being onboard, getting out of bed and enjoying a bacan buttie at 35000 feet before arriving totally relaxed at any of our 30 destinations.

InterContinental Park Lane

From Nora Kurittu, Director of Revenue Management, London.

Once the site of a royal residence, InterContinental London Park Lane is now the epitome of modern elegance. Located between Mayfair and Knightsbridge in view of Buckingham Palace, the hotel is not far from the Tower of London, Big Ben and Trafalgar Square.

InterContinental Berlin

From Niels Schroeder, Director of Revenue Management.

We use the PEC because as a leading congress & conference hotel in Europe, InterContinental Berlin prides itself in always being in the know, even across the borders.

TheInterContinental Berlin, singled out again as Best Business Hotel 2007 in Germany, is a listed architectural landmark, with its striking black and white checkerboard facade. A better location is hard to imagine: in the heart of Berlin, between Potsdamer Platz and Kurfurstendamm, near the embassy district, government offices and the historic section. The hotel is known for its impeccable service and world-class security.

Niels’ highly recommended InterContinental Berlin moment: A Gourmet dinner with an marvellous view of Berlin at the restaurant Hugos.

InterContinental Carlton

From Jad Aboukhater, Director of Revenue Management, Cannes.

Built in 1911 with inspiration from the Belle Epoque period, InterContinental Carlton Cannes is situated on one of France most famous avenues, La Croisette. The Bay of Cannes sparkles just outside the doors, and the Palais des Festivals is a short walk away.

Jad’s highly recommended Carlton moment: early evening, facing the sunset on a comfortable sofa of the hotel private pier.

This tool provides us with a time-saver, one-stop shop access to City events in Europe. It enables our Revenue team to focus on analyzing market impact of events highlighted by the PEC and to be notified pro-actively of any new event taking place in a particular market or region.
