NEW YORK (March 21, 2018) –– SevenRooms, a reservation, seating and guest management platform, and TripAdvisor (NASDAQ:TRIP), the world’s largest travel site, today announced a partnership that enables all non-U.S.-based hospitality operators – inclusive of independent restaurants and hotel-owned establishments – to accept reservations via TripAdvisor, giving them full control over building direct relationships with guests acquired through this booking channel. This program, initially launching with Corbin & King in the United Kingdom, and Jumeirah Group in the United Arab Emirates, gives SevenRooms operator partners the ability to seamlessly offer reservations and procure direct bookings from TripAdvisor’s extensive network of over 455 million diners worldwide.
“At SevenRooms, we believe that operators should own their guest relationships; and we are focused on opening up as many new, direct booking channels for our hospitality clients as possible,” said Joel Montaniel, CEO of SevenRooms. “By partnering with TripAdvisor, and tapping into their extensive consumer network, we are enabling our international restaurant partners to build direct relationships with their guests, capturing valuable guest data in the process. These insights will help them to provide more personalized service and marketing to their guests, boosting revenue and driving more direct bookings.”
“As one of the world’s largest restaurant sites with more than 200 million people per month searching for dining content, SevenRooms customers will benefit from added visibility via TripAdvisor’s global platform,” said Evan Becker, Head of Restaurant Commerce at TripAdvisor. “We’re excited that as a result of this partnership, our diners will also now be able to reserve tables at some of the UK and UAE’s most highly coveted restaurants.”
