Booking.com Connectivity Advisory Board
The Connectivity Advisory Board was established as part of Booking.com’s continued commitment to talking with providers about market trends, ideas, and strategies in order to foster mutual progress. Hereby, Booking.com’s goal is to have more conversations with providers about issues that affect both and to obtain insights and aligning plans with industry milestones.
One of the recent changes is to connect more frequently on values to drive technical and commercial conversations, which will serve to bring up more ideas and common values. Furthermore, the board has been divided into two boards, namely the commercial advisory board and the tech and product advisory board. Another change is the meeting frequency, which will now be 4 times per year, 1 each quarter.
