A week after Europe’s largest festival of technology, HotelREZ, one of the world’s leading hotel representation, sales, marketing and distribution providers reports a surge in bookings generated around London Tech Week (last week). The conference took place across London and offers tech-minded businesses, entrepreneurs and students, a plethora of opportunities to learn, engage and network
Celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, HotelREZ represents 61 hotels across London and works with them to promote bookings from business, leisure and bleisure travellers. This year the company has seen its London clients benefit from a spike in bookings circa 550% YOY. This eye watering increase in bookings across its London portfolio is in part due to events like Tech Week and the audience it brings to the city, but also due to the growth of London hotels selecting HotelREZ as its partner of choice, their mantra being that hotels need more than just technology, so whilst it is Tech Week, it’s important to know that sometimes you still need the human touch and a partner that can offer both.
Mark Lewis, HotelREZ ceo & founder, commented:
“This is particularly encouraging for HotelREZ as we champion and represent many independent properties and hotel groups that often offer a more personalised service and stay.
The tech industry is full of many creative types, who seem to choose quirky, individual properties that suit their style and budget. They aren’t always after the ‘cookie cutter’ experience and this is where our client base excels. We represent 61 individual properties in London, which it seems appeal strongly to the Tech Week crowd, that and our growing hotel portfolio in London giving visitors more choice and range. The attendees like to make the most of their time in London as well as making use of the brilliant opportunities offered across the capital during Tech Week. Our huge growth in London YOY is down to hotels’ realisation that you need more than simply being provided the best technology but rather a partner that will optimise its use.” Lewis concluded.
