EyeWide Digital Marketing Founder, Minas Liapakis with Pancretan Hotel Managers Association, Dimitrios Koubarakis and RevitUp's Nikos Giokas

The event at the Hotel ibis Styles in Heraklion’s center was focused on emerging trends and market specifics for Crete island.

Earlier this week the innovative and much anticipated RevitUp revenue enhancement service went before the Pancretan Hotel Managers Association in Heraklion, Crete. In a warmup for the February 6th HOTECH “Better Together” workshops in Athens, RevitUp presented its wares to key stakeholders in the Crete market.

The event at the Hotel ibis Styles in Heraklion’s center was focused on emerging trends and market specifics for Crete island. Introduced by the President of the organization, Dimitrios Koubarakis, RevitUp Business Development Director, Nikos Giokas made a catching presentation of methods and early successes to 30 or 40 hoteliers attending the organization’s weekly meetings. 

Mr. Koubarakis, who is the General Manager of the Cosmotel Group of Hotels, introduced the new modular hotel revenue management service previously covered by Travel Daily News after the 100% Hotel Show in Athens, during the weekly stakeholder meetings which also featured other Crete based businesses focused on tourism and hospitality. 

RevitUP is billed as the first service that melds key expertise in digital presence management, performance marketing, online distribution, and revenue management in a modular service for revenue enhancement. The new system has already received glowing praise from some of Greece’s most successful hotel owners. In fact, several hoteliers at the Heraklion meetup chimed in during Mr. Giokas’ presentation to comment on groundbreaking facets of the service. ReviUP will also contribute to the upcoming HOTEC workshop events on February 6th at the fabulous Divani Caravel Hotel in the center of Athens.
