  Hospitality eBusiness Strategies Wins Three W3 Awards

New York, NY – November 7, 2007 – Hospitality eBusiness Strategies, (HeBS), NYC today announced receipt of three W3 Silver Awards for outstanding achievement in website development.  The W3 awards are sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, consisting of top-tier professionals from media, advertising and marketing firms.  The 2007 awards were chosen from a pool of 2,700 entries worldwide.  

Silver Winners

Max Starkov, HeBS president and CEO, “These awards show how important a creative, informative, and visually pleasing website is to a hotel’s marketing and distribution efforts. The award winners and our client hoteliers understand the competitive advantages of a comprehensive, well executed Internet marketing strategy. A powerful web presence enables them to reach out directly to their customers, resulting in increased revenues and above industry average ROIs.”

The hotel website has become the first point of contact with past, present and future customers. In the case of hotel websites that are not developed according to industry’s best practices, this is often the last point of contact with the customer. The above W3 Silver Award winners understand it is no longer sufficient to have just any hotel website. Today’s online travel consumers demand that a hotel website have honest and truthful content, rich media, and interactive features and functionality that guarantee an impeccable user experience.

The W3 Awards honor superior creativity on the web and recognize the individuals behind award winning web sites, web advertising and web marketing programs.  W3 is the first major web competition to be accessible to a wide range of agencies from the biggest agencies to the smallest firms.
