D-EDGE Appoints Emilie Couton as New APAC Managing Director

Singapore, Singapore City. August 01, 2022

D-EDGE Hospitality Solutions, a leading hospitality technology provider, announced that Christine Tan will step down as APAC Managing Director of the company. She will be succeeded by Emilie Couton, a highly-regarded business leader in the APAC hospitality markets.

Emilie joined D-EDGE earlier this year. For the past 20 years, she held leadership roles in Sales, Digital Marketing, Guest Experience and Loyalty at Accor hotels; and contributed to the industry through numerous speaking engagements. Emilie has a deep understanding of hoteliers' needs and challenges. She will guide them through new distribution landscape and practices to support their business growth. Emilie, a French native, has lived in Asia for the past 18 years, in Thailand and Singapore.

Pierre-Charles Grob, CEO of D-EDGE, comments: "Emilie knows the business in and out. With her knowledge of the markets and passion for the hospitality industry, she will help us grow our clients' businesses and drive opportunities in the region. She will build on the great work of the D-EDGE APAC team led by Christine Tan, who was instrumental in the development of strong partnerships with our clients. I would like to thank her for the last seven years of fruitful cooperation."

Based in Singapore and a member of the Board of Directors, Emilie will report to Pierre-Charles Grob.

"I am thrilled to take on this new role and have the opportunity to work with all our teams, partners and clients in the region. We shall build on the strong business momentum with the reopening of borders and the travel demand recovery. D-EDGE is expanding its client base worldwide with the recent addition of Accor, ResNet World, Dusit Hotels & Resorts and more. I look forward to fostering a culture of performance and excellence in the region."

D-EDGE, who provides hotels with state-of-the-art technology (Hotel CRS*, Hotel CDM**, …) and digital marketing solutions to help them maximise their revenues, has been operating in Asia since 2003 (at the time under the name of Fastbooking) and expanded its presence to the Pacific in 2018.

Hotel Group Meetings: The Great Outdoors


There is some welcome good news in the Hotel Group Meetings sector. There seems to be a resurgence in activity - across all sectors and all sizes - from small board meetings to large in-person groups. However, hotels must remain flexible and proactive, as they seek to provide venues and programs that are productive, comfortable, and safe to all parties. One major development is the expansion of outdoor meeting activities. This trend not only serves to meet regulatory health standards, but it also promotes an environment of well-being. According to a recent study from WorldHealth.net, spending just 29 minutes outdoors can result in a 45% increase in productivity; and 63% of employees reportedly felt invigorated after being in fresh air. Combined with guided physical activities and healthy food and beverage offerings, a sense of wellness and productivity are established. The September Hotel Business Review will report on what some hotels are doing to accommodate the revitalization of group meeting business in their operations.
