AD1 Global Hotel Wins Grand Prize at 2018 Florida Governor’s Conference on Tourism
HOLLYWOOD, Fl., October 5, 2018 — AD1 Global’s marketing department, in association with their Comfort Inn Orlando – Lake Buena Vista Hotel, was recently awarded a first place “Henry” Flagler Award in Mobile Marketing at the 2018 Florida Governor’s Conference on Tourism.
Hosted by Visit Florida and held at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in Orlando, Florida from September 12-14, this annual conference brings together leaders and experts in the tourism, advertising, and travel industries.
The Flagler Awards recognize outstanding Florida tourism marketing on a statewide level. The program was created to honor and recognize the many individuals and organizations that play their part in making Florida one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
“Each year, the Flagler Awards pay tribute to the determined efforts of those who use their skill, resourcefulness, creativity and innovative spirit to market Florida to the world,” according to Visit Florida’s website.
AD1 Global teamed up with Kipsu, a tech service provider that offers real time communication services through text (SMS) and digital messaging (internet chat, instant messaging) to win first place in the mobile marketing category.
“One of our main goals is to constantly grow and evolve alongside the many technological advances that are available in our modern world,” said President & CEO of AD1 Global Daniel Berman. “Certainly, text messaging is an essential form of communication for our guests, especially millennials.”
Kipsu allows for a customer-focused and driven experience as hoteliers are able to address any concerns, answer questions, and provide immediate assistance to guests via instant message. Access to front desk or concierge services is at the guests’ fingertips, giving service leaders an unprecedented opportunity to establish more personal relationships with their customers. Furthermore, this system has transformed the guest experience to better fit the modern needs of today’s hotel-goers who live fast-paced lives and are accustomed to instant gratification.
Additionally, aside from the enhanced guest experience that comes along with this technology, it’s also proven to be successful in driving additional revenue, generating more than $12,000 within the first month of testing.
“I extend my congratulations to the entire AD1 Global team, especially General Manager Suzi Brady and Rooms Division Manager Perry Sudol for their exceptional effort and dedication in implementing this program successfully,” said Berman. “I’m excited for the future of our hotels and am sure that we will see the same success as we continue to implement Kipsu across all our properties.”
AD1 Global’s portfolio has quickly expanded to now include fifteen hotels, including internationally recognized brands such as Hilton, Marriott, and Wyndham. The company is actively engaged in finding new acquisitions. For more information, please visit www.ad1global.com.
