Angie Hospitality to present voice-assistant’s hotel guest Wi-Fi innovation at WBA Wireless Global Congress

Developer of world’s first 24-hour interactive hotel guest room assistant to present innovative, secure and personal guest room Wi-Fi feature set at leading wireless technology conference.

SAN JOSE, CALIF. – Angie Hospitality, creator of the world's first voice-based guest room assistant and in-room Wi-Fi access solution developed specifically for hotels, has been selected by WBA (Wireless Broadband Alliance) to present at this year's Wireless Global Congress in New York City. During the four-day event, which is scheduled to take place November 13-16 at The Roosevelt Hotel, Angie Hospitality's CEO, Ted Helvey, will present Angie's comprehensive suite of capabilities at two invitation-only sessions, with a focus on its secure PAN (Personal Area Network) guest Wi-Fi functionality.

The annual Wireless Global Conference showcases innovative technological solutions in wireless services, bringing together senior-level executives from a multitude of industries. Chosen by show officials to showcase Angie Hospitality on the conference's prestigious Innovation Stage, Helvey will conduct a six-minute presentation on the solution's advanced Wi-Fi capabilities on Thursday, November 16 at 10:55 a.m. Also selected to participate in this year's WBA Accelerator Program, Helvey will again present an overview of Angie's capabilities to a panel of leading industry experts and investors at 6:50 p.m.

"As the use of voice-activated technologies is continuing to expand in the consumer electronics market, travelers are beginning to expect the same convenience in their hotel room when they are away from home," said Helvey. "We developed Angie from the ground up as an enterprise-class, cloud-managed solution that is purpose-built specifically for hospitality, and we packaged it with a robust and easy-to-use cloud-managed Wi-Fi feature set that provides what every traveler needs and what hotels struggle to provide – simple, secure and easy-to-use connectivity for all their devices. We are honored to have been selected by WBA to present our solution at this elite global forum."

With a focus on not only introducing advanced voice-based guest service solutions to the hospitality industry, but providing secure and robust in-room Wi-Fi networks in every guest room, Angie is the world's first voice-activated, enterprise-class solution built specifically for the hotel environment. The solution offers hoteliers and their guests a 24-hour interactive voice- and touch-based guest room assistant that maximizes operational efficiencies and revenue for the property, as well as increasing guest satisfaction. Angie is currently being implemented at multiple hotel properties in the U.S. and will be available for general distribution in Q1 2018.
