In stealth mode, Travelocity looks to global hotel expansion

11/21/2009| 2:29:30 PM| 中文

Hugh Jones, president and CEO of Travelocity Global, and Barney Harford, his counterpart at Orbitz Worldwide, shared a stage at the PhoCusWright conference in Orlando Nov. 18, outlining their companies’ growth strategies.

Harford talked a lot about hotels and firing up OWW employees to focus on international hotel growth, where Orbitz is pursuing a modified retail model [consumers pay a deposit up-front as commission and the remainder to the hotel at checkout] in some Asia-Pacific markets.

Jones told the gathering that Travelocity’s focus would be to become a better retailer. He hardly mentioned hotels.
