Zentila Scoops Up Top Honors in Travel Weekly Magellan Awards
Zentila has won a Travel Weekly Magellan Award, capturing Gold honors in the Online Travel Services category. The strategic sourcing provider was recognized as one of the best travel technologies for 2015 for ZenDealz, custom hotel offers for meeting planners. This is the second consecutive year that ZenDealz has been recognized with a Gold Magellan Award.
“It’s a tremendous honor to receive this award,” said Mike Mason, founder and CEO, Zentila. “It is a testament to the hard work of the entire Zentila team. Their dedication to creating solutions that address the real needs of hotels and meeting planners is what sets Zentila apart.”
Hotels customize their ZenDealz to specific need dates and group size, and planners receive only those offers that fit their meeting requirements. The technology enables properties to fill occupancy gaps with group business and planners to secure generous savings on meetings and events. Launched in 2014, ZenDealz has quickly gained traction. Today, more than $2.8 million in ZenDealz are available through Zentila.
The company powers strategic sourcing solutions for corporations, associations and many of the world’s largest meeting planning websites. Its groundbreaking platform reaches more than 500,000 planners worldwide, enabling them to source and book meetings in a few days instead of a few weeks. At the same time, Zentila’s carefully targeted leads for hotel partners close at five times the industry average.
