("Guest-Tek" or "the Company") (TSX:GTK), a world-class provider of broadband
technology solutions to the hospitality industry, announced today that it has
strengthened its sales team with the appointment of Robert Mitchell.
    Mr. Mitchell comes to Guest-Tek from NxTV, Inc. where he has spent the
last five years working in an executive sales capacity, most recently as the
Vice President of Global Sales. Rob led NxTV's global IP video-on-demand
expansion into markets such as Hong Kong, United Kingdom, Latin America, and
the Caribbean. Prior to NxTV, Mitchell held a variety of positions including
major accounts manager and executive sales manager at LodgeNet Interactive
Corporation and iBAHN, Inc.
    Don Moore, Chief Marketing Officer at Guest-Tek stated, "Mr. Mitchell has
over nine years of experience in hospitality technology focusing on major and
national account sales, business development and new product launches. He
brings with him a wealth of unique experience and perspectives on the
hospitality video-on-demand and free-to-guest television industry. Rob has
been a thought leader at NxTV and we at Guest-Tek are looking forward to
levering his experience and relationships to capture a growing hospitality
triple play market share."
    Mitchell stated that "Guest-Tek's executive staff, video solutions, and
ability to deliver into today's challenging marketplace were key factors in my
decision to join Guest-Tek. Guest-Tek has a stellar reputation in the hotel
industry and is clearly the company that more and more major hotel brands are
moving towards as their IP services provider. As hoteliers adopt the
convergence of voice, video and data, Guest-Tek is the leading solutions
provider, in my opinion. These are exciting times and I am pleased to be part
of such an innovative company."
