One part of this week’s EyeforTravel Travel Distribution Summit in London was the innovation and investment competition.
Twelve entrepreneurs pitched. This is a quick roundup of which organisations took part and what their services are about.
Room 77 – Room views and reviews. Now at 500,000 hotel rooms in their system. If you were at the conference and missed their presentation then you missed out on a great behind the scenes look at how the sausage factory works to generate the room specific floor plans etc. Shortlisted into the final but didn’t win.
Zonear – Custom mobile maps. Neat little solution for big events, festivals etc to create their own mobile maps. Can open the map from a QR code or specific wireless point.
