Revenue Managment at Harrahs

...less than what they are willing to pay for a room. As Harrah’s moves to including nongaming revenues in its RM system—and, more importantly, to courting customers whose value is driven by nongaming activity—the company is likely to leave something on the table if it does not better understand its various customer segments’ demand elasticities. Harrah’s Revenue Management Scheme and the Use of Booking Limits for Customer Classes Harah’s RM scheme does not explicitly reserve capacity for the various tiers of customer, and in-class discussion can motivate the need for explicit booking limits that are based on distributional forecasts of each tier’s demand. The discussion could motivate introducing the topic of Expected Marginal Seat Revenue (EMSR) booking limits in a follow-up class or justify why it was considered in a prior class. By forcing Tiers 1 and 2 customers to make up the difference between their ADT values and the current clearing ADT value, Harrah’s effectively “reserves” its marginal room capacity for the tier whose ADT value is clearing. This may not reserve enough capacity for better, higher-tier customers, however. In addition, the simulation results described above highlight the fact that realized demands do not necessarily match the point forecasts presented in the Case. That is, for each tier there is a distribution of demand, Table TN16 Request number and one may want to account for demand uncertainty when reserving capacity for the various tiers. The fact......

...fraught with difficulties because it is difficult to know what effectively segments a market from the global capital market. There are three different kinds of barriers. The first are legal barriers, such as foreign ownership restrictions and taxes on foreign investments. An additional complication here is that the liberalization process is typically a complex and gradual one. It took Korea almost 10 years between 1991 and 2000 to gradually remove its foreign ownership restrictions. The second are indirect barriers arising from differences in available information, accounting standards, and investor protection. The third are emerging-market-specific risks (EMSRs) that discourage foreign investment. EMSRs include liquidity risk, political risk, economic policy risk, and perhaps currency risk. In general, indirect barriers and EMSRs may make institutional investors in developed countries reluctant to invest in emerging markets and segment them from the world market. Finally, regulatory restrictions might not have posed a barrier prior to liberalization because canny investors often find ways to circumvent them. Alternatively, there may be legal, indirect ways to access local equity markets, such as through country funds or ADRs. The Korea Fund, trading on the NYSE, is a good example; it was launched in 1986, well before the liberalization of the Korean equity market. In short, determining whether a market is segmented, integrated, or something in between is far from easy. A......
