Gold Award Winners:
HeBS conceptualized the award-winning websites, created the contents, developed the strategies for the sites’ user-friendliness, search-friendliness, and booker-friendliness, provided the Internet marketing strategies, and designed the award-winning websites in partnership with its associated design shop PreVisual.
Noted Max Starkov, HeBS president and CEO, “The competitive advantages of a comprehensive, well executed direct Internet strategy is well understood by the award winners and hoteliers in general. Direct Internet marketing and distribution starts and ends with the hotel website, so the goal is clear: create a powerful web presence that enables the hotel to reach out directly to customers and increase revenues, and lessen dependence on third parties to avoid price and brand erosion. These awards underscore the importance of how a creative, informative, visually pleasing website can add genuine value to hotel marketing and distribution efforts.”
Said William Morrissey, President of Morrissey Hospitality Companies, “We are delighted that The Saint Paul Hotel website won the Best-in-Class award and even more pleased that it has contributed to a successful business strategy. The web is increasingly important to our business model. We look forward to an even stronger 2007 due to our growing web traffic, higher internet conversions and more brand awareness.
