Bookassist takes top World Travel Award The Bookassist team pick up the award in Doha

Backed by the votes of the global travel industry, technology and online strategy firm Bookassist has been crowned World’s Leading Booking Engine Technology Provider for the second year in a row.

It is the firm’s fourth nomination in the awards.

On Saturday November 30th at the dazzling World Travel Awards Grand Final ceremony in Doha, Qatar, Bookassist co-founders Des O’Mahony and Robert Whittle picked up the much-coveted award.

The World Travel Awards, now in its 20th year, is widely hailed as the Oscars of the travel industry.

Recognised across the globe as the ultimate accolade, it rewards those brands that are pushing the boundaries of industry excellence.

Runners up to Bookassist in the travel technology sector include the global powerhouses Sabre and Amadeus.

Bookassist continues to cement its leadership position in the hotel booking engine market with its win this year over local Irish competitor NetAffinity and last year French company Availpro.

“To be chosen ahead of heavyweight global giants in the technology sector is something we are incredibly proud of.

“The technical team at Bookassist works tirelessly to create world-class innovative solutions, and our solutions add real value to our customers’ businesses.

“This award proves that we are delivering exactly what the hotel industry needs, and at the highest standards,” said O’Mahony.

“Winning once could be seen as luck, but getting such strong support from the hotel industry twice is proof you must be doing something right”, he added.
