    We’re less than two weeks away from the start of the new-look Hotel Designs Summit – two days dedicated to hotel design, facilities and development – being held at the Radisson Blu London Stansted on 12-13 September 2016.

    As part of this year’s speaker programme, we’re delighted to announce the attendance of Aly Thompson, Industry Manager for UK and Ireland for trivago, the world’s largest hotel metasearch that serves 120 million visitors per month and receives 4 million requests per day.

    She’s part of trivago’s newly founded Hotel Relations team; a unit that is reinventing the way trivago connects with hoteliers worldwide through its core product, trivago Hotel Manager (tHM). Her goal is to establish trivago as the number one marketing channel for hoteliers, to empower them to boost their ranking on trivago and drive bookings directly to their hotel websites.

    Before taking on her current role, Aly has been working at trivago in Advertiser Communication and our Marketplace team, gaining an advanced understanding of trivago’s market dynamics and developing resources to guide advertisers in optimising their campaigns on trivago.

    Aly studied marketing and communication in New Zealand and Australia and has worked in strategy and communication for several government agencies in New Zealand. She comes from a family of entrepreneurs and is passionate about empowering hoteliers to harness the power of digital marketing to target guests around the world.
