Groups International set to soft launch February 14, 2011

Groups International has announced that on February 14, 2011 it will soft launch, a new leisure travel site that serves as a “direct connect” between hotels and consumers who are ready to travel.

“Hotels have been successful in offering consumers the ability to purchase guest rooms, special promotions, and packages through their websites,” said Chris Wenz, Partner and Co-Founder of Groups International, “but don’t have the same latitude with indirect distribution channels like an online travel agency (OTA) or the Global Distribution Systems (GDS).” What makes Hotelmine different is that it is designed to facilitate the same product offerings and the consumer books direct with the hotel through the hotel’s booking channels.

“We’ve gathered input from hundreds of hoteliers over the past two years and based upon their feedback we created a platform that allows hotels to market and sell products the way they want to sell them in a transparent environment where consumers can make an informed decision about which hotel best suites their budget or tastes,” said Wenz. “This is a win-win for both hotels and consumers.”
