Is your company making waves in mobile? EyeforTravel is seeking to encourage and reward those travel brands which are investing valuable time and resources to drive forward successful mobile strategies.
This is because we recognise that by doing so those brands will undoubtedly pave the way for others to follow.
While there has been a slight increase in the number of travel brands which have a mobile friendly website (46% of travel intermediaries and 50% of travel suppliers now have a mobile website according to recent EyeforTravel research), the travel industry still lags behind in terms of implementing mobile strategies.
Smartphone adoption is rocketing yet investment by travel companies in mobile is inadequate if they are to meet the future demands of consumers. Many companies fear the costs involved in investing in mobile despite the fact that some brands such as global hotel giant IHG are citing impressive results, not least 10-fold increases in mobile revenues over a 12-month period.
Indeed, the costs of not having an adequate mobile strategy in the future could be greater than investing right now.
If your travel brand is investing time and resources to drive forward a successful mobile strategy then we want to hear from you.

Gone are the days when one could talk about how challenging it is to view multi-channel digital data in one place. Today acting on available data and working out dynamic, real-time strategies that push a closer to making a decision must happen in the moment. EyeforTravel’s Ritesh Gupta investigates
As social media has become much more integrated into the business, hotel companies have taken a much more systematic approach to integrating it into their business strategy and corporate culture. For Carlson Rezidor, social may not be a new revenue generator from day one, but training staff in the medium shows foresight.
French hotel group Accor is aggressively aiming to increase its digital turnover by 45% within the next three years. It is also pushing for two-thirds of sales to come from the direct channel. That seems a big ask so EyeforTravel’s Ritesh Gupta talks to Rémy Merckx, VP e-commerce sales and distribution, Accor about what’s in store
