Triptease, a developer of a smart widget that integrates into a hotel’s website and displays three OTA prices in real-time, has been named European Travel Innovator of the Year at the Phocuswright Travel Innovation Summit Europe Awards.
Staged in conjunction with trade event Phocuswright Europe in Dublin, Ireland, last week, the awards recognised companies that are developing applications, technologies and solutions that will transform travel planning, purchasing and sharing.
“The second annual European summit was a great success,” said Phocuswright managing director Tony D’Astolfo. “New business models and leading-edge tech are constantly pushing the travel industry to new heights. The presenting companies – solely from Europe – had some of the most creative solutions to the changing market and will most definitely be moulding the future of the travel industry.”
Triptease also took out the People’s Choice Award at this year’s event.
Indigo, which enables its partners to add ground transportation bookings – including taxis – within mobile, online, agency, corporate travel and other hospitality applications, was runner-up in the main category.
