The great and the good of the Irish Internet community gathered last Friday night in the RDS for the annual showpiece of the industry calendar, the Dot IE Net Visionary Awards 2016. Awards were made across 16 individual categories.
We were absolutely thrilled to be presented with the Industry Innovator
award at the Travel Media Gala ceremony at The Westbury Hotel, Dublin, last
week. The awards, sponsored by Amadeus and Blue Insurance, have been running
for over four years now. Trish O'Leary of Amadeus, when presenting the
award, recognised the major 'pivot' made by Roomex in 2013 when it moved
into the corporate travel space. Also acknowledged was the speed of
technology development, disruption and 'the easier' way in which to book
hotels for business travel. Roomex has now become a key player in the UK and
Irish markets and continues to grow rapidly. Our CEO, Jack Donaghy, was
delighted with the award: "I would just like to pay huge tribute to every
single member of the Roomex Team, both in Ireland and The UK - they continue
to go against the grain, innovate and put their shoulders to the wheel every
single day, well done everyone!"
We've had an incredible run of awards and nominations in the last few months, here's a summary:
The end of year awards season is firmly upon us and we’ve had a busy couple of weeks at Roomex. Matt, our Director of Contracting attended the Eircom Spiders awards in the Convention Centre Dublin and the very next night Michael, Sales Director was in the same venue for the Irish Export Awards.
