Rezgo, a next-generation Web-based booking solution for tour and activity providers, has been selected by PhoCusWright to be featured at the Travel Innovation Summit. The summit, which will be held on November 17, 2008 in Hollywood, will showcase the travel industry's hottest, most innovative Web and mobile-based applications.
"We are very excited to be included in such a prestigious event," said Stephen Joyce, CEO of Sentias Software Corp., the company behind Rezgo.com. "Rezgo is shaking up the traditional tour and activity distribution model, and we are receiving a lot of praise for it. I think that our innovative ideas will resonate with the attendees of The Travel Innovation Summit and the tour and activity community at large."
Rezgo is one of only two dozen companies invited to the inaugural Travel Innovation Summit. The live demonstration of the Rezgo.com booking software will focus on its key competitive differentiators including open connectivity, social computing framework, and unique marketplace integration. Attendees will vote after each demonstration for the top six winners, who will earn one of the coveted "Five Minutes of Fame" presentations during Center Stage at The PhoCusWright Conference later that week. The voting will consider factors such as concept, presentation, ability to execute, business model, and confidence in the company's future. The five minute Center Stage presentations place the most innovative products and companies in front of the most influential travel industry executives.
"We have some really amazing features that we are developing right now", added Mr. Joyce "Being part of the Travel Innovation Summit means we'll have a high profile global stage upon which to showcase the work the Sentias team has been doing over the last two years".
