HOTREC welcomes European Parliament’s report on the Digital Markets Act

HOTREC warmly welcomed the European Parliament’s vote on the Digital Markets Act, which approved some crucial improvements to the future legislation and brought important clarifications to the criteria which will be used to identify so-called ‘gatekeeper’ platforms.

Under the proposals put forward by the European Parliament, gatekeepers would not be able to restrict the pricing policy of establishments on their own online sales channels via so-called narrow price parity clauses and would have to share more detailed and granular data with business users. HOTREC highlights these two key improvements which go a long way towards supporting the digitalisation of hospitality establishments and their capacity to compete with platforms for consumers’ attention in the digital space.

With trilogue negotiations set to get underway under the French Presidency of the EU in 2022, HOTREC urges the EU Member States to agree with the regulatory ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ put forward by the European Parliament. When it comes to designating gatekeepers, HOTREC considers that the criteria outlined by both Parliament and Council offer a solid basis for a good compromise.
