Avenues participated at WTM 2007 as Meridian Club members. This membership allowed them to optimize their time spent at World Travel Market through pre-shows and onsite benefits that allow them to accurately identify, network and do business with both existing and potential suppliers who are exhibiting.
The Avenues delegation met with over 200 hoteliers from England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, USA, South-Africa and more. The response received from the hoteliers from these highly competitive and advanced markets where majority of hotels have already developed their own online system was positive - with over 30% hoteliers interested in signing up for the ResAvenue Booking Engine. The interest in ResAvenue’s ExtraNet service was even more significant with approximately 75% of hoteliers willing to sign up for the service.
