Distribution channels are one of the most valuable opportunities for vacation rental managers to create competitive advantage, extend their reach, and generate qualified leads from new, untapped markets. At the same time, direct bookings limit commission fees, establish independence, and build sustainable growth. During this session, the panelists will share their diversification strategies, experiences, successes, and failures, as well as their approaches to mitigating risk and limiting reliance on specific channels.
