The first Internet auction platform for free hotel room allotments for congresses and group travel - 10,000 companies already registered.
On September 15, 2002, at 6 p.m. a world-wide novelty is due to start on the Internet: www.snoozeland.com
. This will be the first platform where hotel rooms for congresses and group travel can be auctioned.
For bidders, using the platform will be free. Providers of hotel rooms will only pay a system fee of 3%, and they can determine the terms of allotment splitting, payment and cancellation themselves. On www.snoozeland.com hotel rooms can be auctioned from all over the world at any time in allotments from 10 rooms upwards. Hotels will benefit by achieving a higher occupancy during low-season periods. Congress and convention organizers can obtain low-cost hotel room allotments without having to go through the laborious process of soliciting quotations themselves.
Internet project was developed by Leipzig Tourist Service e.V. (LTS) in co-operation with PC-Ware Information Technologies AG and is based on Microsoft technology. So far, more than 4,600 hotels and over 5,500 congress organizers, airlines and group travel organizers, etc. have registered.
