We're constantly looking for new ways to generate deeper knowledge and insights for hoteliers to add more value and make it even easier to discover and adopt the best products to run and grow their hotel businesses.

And who knows about hotel tech products better than...tech companies!

Vendors have deep knowledge of the inner workings of their partners' products and companies, but they also get first hand unbiased feedback from their own clients about their partners making their expertise, knowledge and experience invaluable.


What are partner recommendations?

Vendors can now invite their partners to leave a recommendation for their product which gets added to their profile and counts towards their scoring in the 2020 HotelTechAwards.

How do I get recommendations from partners?

Its simple, just have your business development, integrations or C-suite team members send out your recommendation link to your partners and ask them to leave a recommendation (tip: leave them a recommendation first and they'll be more likely to give you one back!)

Recommendation Link: https://hoteltechreport.com/recommend (select your company in the index on the recommendation page to access your unique recommendation link)


Where will my recommendations show up on my profile and count towards my HT Score?

When partner vendors leave you a recommendation, it will go through a similar verification flow to hotelier reviews. After 48-hours if the recommendation passes verification you will receive a notification email and the recommendation will appear on your profile.

Partner recommendations do count as one of the quality signals in the HT Score (get 15 partner recommendations to earn max points).

Hi [First Name]

I'm working on [Company]'s 2020 HotelTechAwards campaign and we're really close to winning.  As part of our campaign we need 5 of our integrations partners to recommend [Company] so I wanted to reach out and ask for your help since you work with them so closely.

Could you pick 5 of your favorite partners, leave them each recommendations using the link below and then reach out to your contacts at each letting them know that you've recommended them and ask for them to recommend us in return?  I've included an email template for you to send them below to save you time.

Each recommendation takes under 5-minutes so if you could do one per day that would help us out a ton on getting this award.

Here's the link to recommend our partners

Thanks in Advance,
