ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
The 3 P’s - Packaging, Partnerships and Pricing
Customers are seeking convenience, value added experiences and personalised itineraries tailored to their individual needs. This workshop is about partnerships and collaboration and will help you identify other tourism operators in your (or nearby) region that offer complementary products aligned to your target market and brand. You will practice how to develop itineraries and price packages to offer compelling value-added experiences and join forces to explore new marketing and distribution avenues to gain greater exposure, reach more ideal customers and turn them into advocates.
- Different types of packages and tourism case studies
- Choosing complementary tourism products or services for collaboration
- Design bundles or packages that add value and convenience to your customer and deliver a more memorable travel experience
- Partnership contracts and considerations from legal perspectives
- Differentiate major pricing strategies
- Practice pricing a package
Distribution and Commission
The ‘add-on’ workshop on distribution and commission will provide insights into the various traditional and modern distribution channels and how to build commission into your pricing structure. Distribution is about enhancing the visibility and sale of a tourism product by providing your ideal target market with a variety of ways to buy your product. Third-party channels such as travel agents, wholesalers, online travel agents (OTA’s) and inbound tour operators (ITO’s) act as an extended sales and marketing arm for operators, to help reach required capacity levels. Distribution partners have built significant customer brand equity and developed a detailed understanding of customer requirements, expectations and offer significant target market reach in a globalised industry. Commissions vary by channel from (mostly 10-30%) and can be regarded as a marketing cost to the business.
- Understanding roles of various distribution partners and the tourism supply chain
- Understanding commission levels and average commission
- Get ‘distribution-ready
