What else? Wego grow, Voyage Prive search, SpeedRFP 2.0, AvailPro tops

What else is going on in the world of travel tech? A round-up of other stories from across the industry.

  • Massive expansion in its sights for Wego as it reveals plans to launch in 34 new markets and in 20 different languages. The move coincides with the departure of CEO Martin Symes (who is continuing non-exec involvement with Wego but on various ideas and opportunities, replaced by original founder Ross Veitch) and the recent introduction of a number of new features. Wego is now also powering the white label travel search engines for Yahoo, MSN, Detik and NineMSN.
  • Voyage Prive is looking to up its search marketing efforts by hiring France-based agency Keyade. The agency will handle VP’s activity in both the UK and Brazil, running PR (through based-JPW Communications), online marketing and acquisition strategy for the flash sales brand.
  • SpeedRFP unveils version 2.0 of its system this week. The meeting and event organisation system for the hotel sector (covered here from 2009’s PhoCusWright Conference) has enhanced its core platform by integrating technology that allows buyers to book any kind of group business, direct from any hotel website, anywhere in the world, by using a single so-called “three-in-one” RFP form.
  • Spanish chain H-Top Hotels is enabling its 14 hotels to manage online bookings via third parties using AvailPro‘s Smart Channel Manager. The technology will allow H-Top to manage sales of its 3,900 rooms via 15 third party websites which up to now has been a manual process.
