PROS Announces Agenda for China Revenue Management Conference

HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PROS (NYSE: PRO), the world leader in pricing and revenue management software, today announced plans for its seventh-annual China conference.

The interactive symposium provides delegates with real-world, innovative revenue management experiences and best practices through case studies, group exercises and practitioner insights. The conference is conducted exclusively in Mandarin.

“Participation in the conference continues to grow as Chinese airlines adopt revenue management best practices as a strategic component in their global growth strategies.”

The 2011 event is co-sponsored by China Southern Airlines, the largest airline in The People’s Republic of China.
