Are hotels breaking competition law?(2)

LONDON - When the leaders of the European inbound travel industry meet on 9 November at ETOA's Global European Marketplace at Earls Court here, they will be considering some questions that could have a dramatic impact on the way the tourism market operates. One of these is the vexed issue of price collusion. Such issues go to the heart of the way the market for hotel accommodation operates, as many hotels seek to ensure the prices to consumers on their own web sites are the lowest in the market. Neil Baylis, an expert in European competition law from the law firm K&L Gates, will explore these issues in depth during the conference and explain what is and what is not lawful. The conference, with delegates comprising senior managers from Europe's major tour operators, hotel groups, tourist attractions, coach, rail and cruise companies and local tourist boards, takes place immediately before the World Travel Market 2007.
