Electronic information distribution has become undeniably important in the hospitality and tourism sectors. Using a combination of narrative, analysis and case studies, this text traces the origins of electronic distribution in tourism and places current developments in context, while also looking at developing technologies and assessing their potential effect on the industry of the future. It is written from a managerial (rather than a technical) perspective, and takes an international approach with worldwide analysis and case studies encompassing Europe and the USA as well as the global marketplace. These include discussions of the distribution strategies of companies such as SABRE, Group Accor, Holiday Inn, Utell International, Best Western, as well as examinations of developing systems such as TIS, Gulliver, TravelWeb, Microsoft Expedia, Degriftour, Imminus and THG. Developments in all sectors of the tourism and hospitality industries are explored, but particular emphasis is placed on the accommodation product, illustrating its information distribution through each of the different systems.

Synopsis:

The importance of electronic distribution systems in the tourism and hospitality sectors is increasing both as a means for disseminating travel information and as a facility for accepting bookings and reservations. Using a combination of narrative, analysis and case studies, this book traces the introduction of electronic distribution into the tourism industry. It then places developments in context and assesses the potential of technologies still being developed to affect the tourism sector of the future. It is written from a management, rather than a technical perspective and takes an international approach, with worldwide analysis and case studies encompassing developments in the US, Europe and the global marketplace. Development in all sectors of the tourism and hospitality industries are discussed but particular emphasis is placed on the accommodation product, illustrating its distribution through each of the available systems. This book is reading for lectures, students and researchers in tourism and hospitality management and marketing, and tourism industry staff.
