To celebrate hitting an important milestone in eRevMax history – serving 7000 happy customers – the company attended the 2013 World Travel Market event in London to show exactly why they’re considered a world leader in channel and distribution management. With help from their approved channel ecosystem which includes Agoda, GTA, and Russian-based Ostrovok, eRevMax used this opportunity to show how the popular RateTiger software has evolved and become flexible and diverse enough to meet the needs not only of independent hoteliers but also of mid-market hotel groups and large, global hotel chains. The event took place between 4th and 7th November at ExCeL Docklands.
