Sojern, Sabre and Nor1 Webinar: How to Influence Guest’s Behavior from Booking Through Pre-Arrival

Join Sojern, Sabre and Nor1 as our experts take a look at how you can own and optimize over 451+ touchpoints in the average path-to-purchase to generate 1.5-3x more direct bookings, be less reliant on OTAs, provide a booking experience to maximize conversion, and merchandise your hotel’s product and services to drive revenue and provide a great guest experience so they come back again and again.


Our experts will show you:

  • How to influence travelers that have shown intent to visit your market early in the path-to-purchase to get them to book directly with you.
  • What you should have on your website and what keeps someone from not booking. Hint: It’s something you have run into yourself.
  • When to present upsell and merchandising offers that guest will actually buy.
