Criton renews sponsorship with HOSPA

Award-winning mobile technology provider, Criton, has renewed its sponsorship with hotel association, HOSPA, for the second year in a row.

The travel tech company will also be exhibiting and hosting a workshop during HOSPACE, the association’s one-day conference, which returns to the Royal Lancaster London on Thursday, 28th November.

Established in June 2016, Criton enables hotels and serviced apartment operators to offer a branded guest app. With guests today travelling with their own mobiles, tablets and laptops, businesses can wrap their guest-facing technology into one portal, thereby taking back control of the guest interaction from pre stay onwards, improving the guest experience, increasing direct bookings and reducing commission costs.

Founder and CEO Julie Grieve, who created Criton after recognising a gap in the market, said: “There's multiple guest-facing technology options now on offer in hotels, but they all come with different guest interfaces detracting from a smooth guest experience. Multiple interfaces ­reduce engagement which makes it hard for hotels to see ROI. Our ultimate goal at Criton is to show hoteliers how they can overcome this challenge and adopt the same technology that large hotel chains already adopt.

“We are incredibly proud therefore to renew our sponsorship with HOSPA. As an association that is committed to bettering the hospitality landscape for all those involved, it always feels like the perfect partnership for us. We are incredibly excited to be sharing that ethos at this year’s HOSPACE; sharing our expertise and helping all those we can at our exhibitor’s stand and during our workshop.”

HOSPACE is a one-day annual conference and exhibition hosted by HOSPA, the UK's leading educational organisation for Financial Management, Revenue Management, Asset Management, Marketing and IT professionals within the hospitality industry.

Jane Pendlebury, chief executive of HOSPA, said: “I am thrilled to announce Criton as silver sponsors of HOSPA and to say they are also supporting us at one of the biggest events in our calendar, HOSPACE 2019.  

“We still have a number of exhibition and sponsorship opportunities available so we’re very much looking forward to sharing further details of the line-up as it is announced over the coming months.”

Once again, delegates attending this year’s HOSPACE will benefit from an informed and cutting-edge view from an international line-up of inspirational experts – all icons in their own field – about the latest key financial, revenue and IT management issues and developments; as well as the commercial aspects that connect these together to maximise profitability and create value.

Sponsorship at HOSPACE provides an invaluable platform to get your brand seen by hundreds of hospitality professionals during the event and on the HOSPACE website, while sponsoring the prestigious leadership awards gives brands the opportunity to inspire the next generation.
