Sabre plots hospitality growth – tuck-ins, geographic and customer expansion
Just days before Sabre announced its acquisition of Genares, chief executive Tom Klein was speaking at the Deutsche Bank 2014 Technology Conference.
He will no doubt have had hospitality on the brain and, therefore, touched a number of times on the importance of the segment for future overall growth of the business.
Klein describes hospitality as a white space in terms of business potential and an industry which has been 'under-served and under-invested.'
Sabre isn't the only company keeping a close watch on the sector with rival Amadeus investing heavily with the acquisition of Newmarket International late last year and more recently Travelport's purchase of Hotelzon.
