DENVER, CO – June 11, 2008 – The new Media, Entertainment and Business solution from Roomlinx, Inc. (OTC: RMLX - News) has been declared one of the “latest and greatest” technologies by Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) for its ability to enhance the guest experience and significantly increase incremental property revenues. The interactive solution – which gives hotel guests the most comprehensive group of interactive services ever created for in-room access – will be on display as part of GUESTROOM 2010, a prototype hotel room and pavilion at the 36th Annual Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITEC), June 17-19 at the Austin (Texas) Convention Center. 

"Our selection panel, comprised of some of the top hospitality technology experts in the world, selected Roomlinx’ Media, Entertainment and Business Solution as an example of products that might have a positive impact on the guestroom in 2010," said Frank Wolfe, CAE, CEO of HFTP. "This impact should be both positive and long lasting."

The Roomlinx system provides instant access to hotel services, video on demand, international/U.S. television programming, local news/weather/business/sports updates, streaming music or iPod/MP3 compatibility, shopping, Microsoft©-compatible business productivity tools, concierge assistance, and PC/ Web-based games. It offers hotels the most advanced, innovative information and communication devices available. 

Through solid partnerships, Roomlinx provides every room with a unique system that includes: an optional 32-inch HDTV, a Windows©-compatible media console, a wireless keyboard and remote both with an integrated mouse, a Roomlinx Proprietary Media & Entertainment Software Package, 24/7/365 help desk support and a complete HSIA network upgrade if requested.

Mike Wasik, CEO of Roomlinx, says this system transforms the guestroom landscape into a dynamic and interactive environment that generates revenues. With the Roomlinx Media, Entertainment and Business Solution, hotels will strengthen their brand by providing a unique marketing tool, an unforgettable guest experience, and a reliable infrastructure for guest Internet use.

“We are thrilled that Roomlinx has been declared one of the ‘latest and greatest’ technologies by HFTP’s Guestroom 2010 Task Force,” Wasik said. “We are eager to get Roomlinx in front of as many people as possible because we know it offers the next great point-of-differentiation to travelers. We have seen the reaction from numerous hotel companies after presenting the system, and it has been extremely positive – so much so that we anticipate national brand announcements in the very near future.”

Roomlinx recently announced that Chicago-based Creative Hospitality Associates is serving as its sales partner for all products and services including the new interactive in-room system. CHA is a full-service hospitality-consulting firm with a proven track record of growth and expansion for hotels, restaurants, clubs, multi-unit properties and gaming ventures. 

“We were drawn to Roomlinx because we believe that it’s Media, Entertainment and Business Solution is ‘the technology of the future,’” said CHA Partner and Roosevelt University Professor Chuck Hamburg. “As a hospitality educator for 37 years, I’ve researched a lot of hotel technology – and I’m not at all surprised to see the Roomlinx system showcased in GUESTROOM 2010. It’s an evolutionary system that reinvents itself based on market and demographic demands. More importantly, it bridges the gap between the guest experience and operational revenue generation. 

“Any hotel owner or operator looking to enhance guest satisfaction, increase revenues, and simply provide that ‘Wow’ factor should be sure to look for Roomlinx at HITEC,” he added.

The Roomlinx Media, Entertainment and Business Solution can be seen at Roomlinx’ HITEC Booth #255. To pre-schedule an appointment or demonstration of the Roomlinx Media, Entertainment and Business Solution, call Bridget Oliva-Werba at 602-803-5777 or email bwerba@roomlinx.com
