NEW YORK, NY (January 11, 2011) – The Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) will recognize Travel Tripper, LLC with a Gold Adrian Award for advertising excellence in the 54th annual Adrian Awards Competition, the largest and most prestigious travel marketing competition globally. Travel Tripper was recognized for its innovative marketing campaign from the 2010 HITEC trade show.
HSMAI will pay tribute to Travel Tripper during the annual HSMAI Adrian Awards Gala, a black-tie affair attended by more than 1,000 hospitality, travel and tourism marketing executives, on January 31, 2011, at the New York Marriott Marquis.
Travel Tripper is a dynamic, fast growing reservation service provider that offers the hotel industry’s best online booking engine - RezTripTM. Version 2.0 of RezTripTM, which is now available worldwide, has driven length of stay increases of up to 20% and ADR increases of up to 22% for its launch partner hotels.
These strong results are due to RezTripTM’s unique merchandising capabilities. The product streamlines the shopping process for consumers by enabling hotels to present consistent and logical pricing across rooms, rates, and packages. RezTripTM 2.0 enables guests to book up to five different rooms in one shopping session across any set of dates. Guests can email in-progress reservations to co-travelers who can review or complete the booking. The booking engine has full multi-lingual and multi-currency capabilities.
This year’s contest attracted nearly 1,100 entries from around the world, with entries judged by top executives from all sectors of the industry. “The quality of the entries submitted in this year’s HSMAI Adrian Awards competition was truly outstanding,” said Fran Brasseux, HSMAI executive vice president. “This year’s winners represent the most inspiring examples of travel advertising, public relations, and digital marketing. We look forward to sharing this great work with the industry at the Adrian Awards Gala.”
In addition to celebrating Travel Tripper’s award-winning work, the Gala and reception honors lifetime achievement and the “Top 25 Most Extraordinary Minds in Sales and Marketing.” All winning entries will be accessible in the Adrian Awards Winners Gallery online following the gala at www.adrianawards.com.
