O’Rourke Hospitality Marketing to Introduce ‘SmartstaySM at HITEC 2010
 Visitors can Enter to Win an Apple® iPadTM

(June 3, 2010) O’Rourke Hospitality Marketing will be at HITEC 2010, June 21-24, Orlando, Fla., where they will introduce their one-of-a-kind iPhone app for hotels called Smartstay. Visitors to the O’Rourke Booth (#1234) can also enter to win an Apple iPad.
Smartstay is a new ‘white label’ iPhone app that hotels can customize to represent their own brand. Hotels can easily enter their hotel information, images, videos, and news updates with an easy to use content management system that they can access online. 
The main benefit of the Smartstay app for hotels is that it opens up a new communication channel where hotels can connect with their guests before, during, and after their stay. Hotel guests also benefit from the app and can make a reservation with their iPhones, access information about a hotel, and use the interactive map.
O’Rourke invites conference attendees to visit booth #1234 and try Smartstay for themselves on the demo iPhones that will be available. Visitors can also learn more about how O’Rourke’s services can enhance their marketing efforts and increase their ROI. O’Rourke focuses exclusively on the hospitality industry and provides hotels with Website Design and Optimization, Internet Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, and Print Design.
Visitors to the O’Rourke booth can enter the Giveaway by filling in a raffle form which can be downloaded from the Smartstay website. Raffle forms will also be available at the booth. The drawing will be held on Thursday, June 24th at 11:00 at the O’Rourke booth (#1234). The winner must be present at the time of the drawing to claim their prize.
HITEC is the World’s Largest Hospitality Technology Show and offers educational sessions, as well as an unsurpassed expo which showcases the latest industry products and services from over 300 companies. O’Rourke is looking forward to participating in HITEC and welcomes the opportunity to meet hoteliers and introduce them to Smartstay.
O’Rourke recognized the hospitality industry’s need for a mobile solution and has created a high-quality, robust, unique app that will take hotels into the mobile market and allow them to tap into a new source of revenue.
