    Bidroom: Shaking Things Up & Battling Commission Business Model in Hospitality

    Bidroom: Shaking Things Up & Battling Commission Business Model in Hospitality

    A natural-born entrepreneur, Michael started his first company at the age of 18. From the age of 24, he worked for 4 years for a large international enterprise and was responsible for a turnover of 45 million euros per year. Thereafter he founded the online travel agency, Travelservice. Currently, he is CEO and co-founder of Bidroom, the world’s first membership-based zero commission hotel booking platform for frequent travelers. 

    In this episode we build off of the new (and working) approach Michael and his team at Bidroom have taken to change the way things currently are when it comes to OTAs, commission battles, and delivering the proper catered experience with 3rd party providers.

    We are giving away FREE tickets to Bidrooms event brand, I Meet Hotel! It's a virtual conference for all hoteliers globally and we want you (yes, all of you) to take advantage of this! So, ALL Slick Talkers get a free ticket if you use this promo code! SlickTalk-IMH is the code and I hope to virtually see you all there!
