Calgary, AB – April 14, 2004 – Guest-Tek Interactive Entertainment Ltd., (Guest-Tek) (TSX: GTK), a world-class provider of high-speed Internet access to the hospitality industry, today announced that Canalta, a major motel ownership group in Western Canada, has selected Guest-Tek as its exclusive provider of high-speed Internet access. Guest-Tek’s broadband solution will be offered in 15 Canalta properties by the end of 2004, 12 of which will be installed within the next three months. Brands owned by Canalta include Super 8, AmeriHost, Best Western, Holiday Inn, Ramada and Travelodge.
Canalta VP of Hotel Operations Brooke Christianson said Guest-Tek’s high-speed solution has already proven successful in two of its Alberta properties.
“Guest-Tek delivers a consistent, high-quality solution that ensures our guests can connect to the Internet quickly and easily every time, and their support services are outstanding. Guests appreciate being able to call Guest-Tek’s 24/7 Help Desk for prompt assistance, and hotel staff value knowing that Guest-Tek’s technical team will handle any guest queries smoothly and efficiently.”
Guest-Tek Sales & Marketing VP Doug Vickerson said Canalta’s decision to install broadband reinforces how important high-speed services have become to hotels in all market segments.
“Guests have come to expect high-speed Internet access on the road, whether they are staying in a five-star property in Paris or a limited-service hotel in rural Alberta. Guest-Tek’s solution adapts to the unique needs of each of these segments, and will help Canalta build brand loyalty.”
According to Guest-Tek CEO Paul Sullivan, the agreement with Canalta also reinforces Guest-Tek’s stated goal of increasing penetration of the North American hospitality market. “Hotels from all market segments recognize the need for high-speed Internet access. This agreement demonstrates Guest-Tek’s continued success in capitalizing on those opportunities, particularly within the critical mid-tier and economy segments, where we predict the greatest growth in terms of both revenue and installations in the months and years ahead.”
