As OTAs (online travel agents) have become bigger and more powerful, they have not only drawn fire from the hotel industry but have also been scrutinized in terms of their impact on competition, and this will certainly remain a hot topic in 2012. We asked Tom Page, Head of the Hotel & Leisure Group for London-based CMS Cameron McKenna LLP, to give Hotel Yearbook readers an overview of the issues.

Hotel Yearbook (various authors)
The Hotel Yearbook is a uniquely forward-looking annual publication. Each year, dozens of CEOs and other senior executives from the hotel industry worldwide, as well as leading analysts and observers, use this platform to share their expectations for the coming twelve months. Each of the 70+ contributors looks specifically at his or her area of expertise, describing the likely developments for the year ahead. As a whole, The Hotel Yearbook thus offers readers a comprehensive overview of the trends and factors that will have an impact on the performance of the hotel business in the year to come – as perceived by the industry’s leaders themselves.
