 Hotelbeds, the world’s leading bedbank, has chosen Costa Mujeres in Cancun as the host destination for the 9th edition of Hotelbeds´ MarketHub Americas event that will take place from Tuesday 7 to Friday 10 May.

The event will take place under the theme of ‘SHIFTING FUTURES’ and will explore how the travel sector should react to the changes and shifts in the industry to better prepare for the future in terms of key topics such as technology, the complexity of distribution, payments, and data.

Guest speakers from the leading industry publication Skift and the renowned industry analysts Phocuswright will be appearing on stage to both give a key note speech plus host a panel session. Additionally, experts from Amazon, Google and McKinsey & Company will also be appearing on stage at this dynamic event. Further speakers will be confirmed in due course.

MarketHub Americas is an invitation-only, three-day event attended by up to 500 of the most important Hotelbeds partners from all the key source markets of the Americas. Attendees include senior executives and decision makers from tour operators, airlines, loyalty and point redemption businesses, leading travel agency chains and online travel advisors.

Hotelbeds is proud to announce that its Premium and Platinum partners currently confirmed will be, Palladium Group, Accor Hotels, Atlantis Hotels and Resorts, Disney Destinations, EULER HERMES – Solunion, Hilton, RCD Hotels and Wynn Encore Las Vegas.

Additionally, Hotelbeds is proud to confirm that the hotel hosts for this year’s MarketHub in the Americas will be the luxurious, 5-star Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort.

Gold, Silver and Bronze partners have also been confirmed and further sponsorship opportunities still remain available for potential partners to position themselves with this senior group of the industry’s most important decision makers.

Carlos Muñoz, Bedbank Managing Director at Hotelbeds, commented: “Due to the great success of our previous MarketHubs and in order to thank our expanded customer base, I´m very pleased to confirm that this year’s edition will be in Costa Mujeres, Cancun and that we´ll be having both Skift and Phocuswright delivering key note speeches – exploring important topics such as the complexity of distribution.

 “This MarketHub will be particularly exciting for us as it will be the first edition as one consolidated company. Over the last year we’ve been working hard to create one new and enhanced business to better serve our partners including:  a new and consolidated leadership structure; one single account management and billing point for all partners including travel buyers and hoteliers; the launch of a Product Management department; and an enhanced IT structure that is now almost completely migrated onto one, new platform.

 “I look forward to thanking in person all our sponsors and hotel host partners for helping make this event happen – and of course clients for their loyalty, as well as their trust in us to continue to deliver them with the best and most exclusive deals available in the market.” 

A key and regular industry fixture since 2009, MarketHubs are one of the leading events for bringing the travel industry together, with nine previous events in the Americas, five in Europe, and one in Asia.

The MarketHub Americas event will kick-off with a cocktail dinner on the Tuesday evening, with the Wednesday and Thursday featuring a conference and trade show by day and exclusive entertainment by night.
