We have got closer to mid-offices
Many RateHawk partners work with diverse suppliers. To smooth all processes and save time, it’s worth considering special reporting systems. In November we published two whole articles about these useful tools: we explained how mid-offices help you to work more effectively and how to connect them to RateHawk.
We hosted Black Friday Week
Black Friday on RateHawk in 2022 lasted an entire week! The special promo code BFWeek was valid from 21 to 27 November, and another 48 lucky winners got promo codes for discounts of $23 or more.
As a reminder, announcements of promotions and other activities are always to be found in our blog and on our Facebook page.
We launched a promotion for paying for bookings using a link and held a prize draw
At the end of 2022 we decided to incentivize partners who were frequently using the function for paying for bookings with a payment link (instructions are here), and held a special promotion. We announced the results on our Facebook page: congratulations once again to the lucky winners, who got an iPhone 12 or a RateHawk certificate worth €250!
We began partnership with Travzilla
RateHawk is now available for all clients of Travzilla — a supplier of high-tech solutions for travel agencies and tour operators. We are sure that travel professionals will appreciate the attractive rates and huge inventory from our system, which now includes 1,800,000+ accommodation options around the world!
We participated at TTG, WTM and other major events
At RateHawk we love meeting our partners and colleagues throughout the world, and we did so with gusto in the last few months of 2022! A parade of fun meetings, useful conferences and other important events began in Paris, where we took part in the international trade fair IFTM Top Resa.
In mid-October, our hawks led by Emerging Travel Group CEO Felix Shpilman headed to Rimini for TTG Travel Experience, and it was a legendary occasion! If you missed the report from the event as it unfolded, then we advise you to look here.
The World Travel Market London exhibition in early November turned out to be just as intense: we captured the most interesting moments in photos and on film, and we also shared our massive plans. After that, we headed from London to Stockholm, where we participated in Travel News Market for the first time, and then we saw in the winter at Tashkent International Tourism Fair in Uzbekistan.
The finest hour for the finest stands
In three days at TTG in Rimini we held over 130 meetings at the RateHawk stand, while at WTM in London we won the Best Stand Award. We thank everybody who helped us prepare for the exhibitions, as well as everyone who appreciated our efforts!
The last quarter of the year proved to be explosive for many local RateHawk teams! Firstly, our colleagues from Egypt visited an event organized by Dubai Government Tourism, while colleagues from Spain took part in the Acave Travel Market in Bilbao and a seminar in Catalonia. Meanwhile, the Greek team visited Philoxenia 2022 in Thessalonica, where RateHawk represented the ETGMTH travel agents’ association and was an event sponsor.
RateHawk colleagues from Portugal spent three action-packed October days at a convention organized by the Dit Geston travel agency chain, and then headed off in November to Coimbra to the Grupo GEA Portugal conference.
Our Polish hawks visited Wroclaw, Katowice and Krakow in the last quarter of 2022 during the Asiste Travel Roadshow, as well as welcoming guests! The RateHawk office in Warsaw hosted not only the most active partners of our system and Qatar Airways, but also passionate football fans: the soiree began with a presentation of useful job tools, and ended watching the exciting Poland – Argentina match at the 2022 World Cup.
We are finalists at the Travel Gossip Awards and were winners at the Uzakrota Awards
At the end of November, the Turkish RateHawk team returned from the Uzakrota Conference in Istanbul not only with new knowledge and contacts, but also with an Uzakrota Awards statuette! Thank you to everybody who voted for us in the World’s Leading Travel Technology Provider category — such strong appreciation of our qualities motivates us to further achievements. We are ready to overcome any difficulties and adapt to the industry’s changing conditions: Emerging Travel Group CEO Felix Shpilman talked about this on a panel discussion at the Uzakrota Conference.
Thanks to your support, RateHawk is also a finalist at the Travel Gossip Awards in the Agents’ Favorite Bed Bank category. The results will be announced in March 2023, and we hope to share another victory with you!
We spread a festive mood and got ready for New Year
The RateHawk team in Romania felt the festivities approaching as early as the start of December and gifted partners Christmas cakes, after which Hawks throughout the world caught the mood! In this article we share expert recommendations on Spanish chocolate churros, Latvian gingerbread and other confectionary and joys.
We achieved lots in 2022, but in 2023 we are ready to bring even more ambitious plans to life! If you have any suggestions, comments or questions about working with the system, please contact your account manager or the support service.
