Guest-Tek's OneView(TM) clients win a clean sweep of technology awards at the 2008 Hotel Technology Forum in Las Vegas



    CALGARY and AUSTIN, June 18 /CNW/ - Guest-Tek Interactive Entertainment
Ltd. (TSX:GTK) would like to extend sincere congratulations to its OneView(TM)
clients; Peninsula Hotels, Fairmount Hotels, and MTM Luxury Lodging who
received awards for their leadership and innovation using technology to
improve the guest experience.
    The Hotel Technology Forum (HTF) is an industry leading annual event
hosted to bring the leaders in hospitality and technology together for
conferences, think tanks and awards.
    Now in their fourth year, the Hotel Visionary Awards, presented by
Hospitality Technology (HT) magazine, seek to honor hotel companies for
outstanding achievement in delivering technological, operational and overall
excellence to guests. The awards honor three hotel companies, one in each of
three categories. The first two categories, Overall Technology Innovation and
Exceeding Guest Expectations, are permanent fixtures of the awards, with a
winner chosen in those categories each year. The third and final category is
selected on an annual basis based on market trends surrounding innovation. The
third category for the 2008 Awards is Outstanding Achievement in In-Room
Innovation.
    Winners are judged by HT editorial staff on a basis of innovation,
thought leadership, and forward-thinking vision, and announced at the Hotel
Technology Forum.
    Hospitality Technology received its highest number of nominations for the
Awards this year, with more than 40 hotel companies being either self or
third-party nominated. The nomination pool was comprised of many
highly-accomplished and forward-thinking hotel companies, making this years'
competition the toughest yet.
    "Consumers have become increasingly tech-savvy and expect greater levels
of personalized service during their hotel stay. The lodging industry
continues to strive to exceed guest expectations, and the hotels selected for
the 2008 Hotel Visionary Awards are leading the way. It's our pleasure to
recognize them for their efforts," says Abigail A. Lorden, editor for
Hospitality Technology and the engineer behind the Hotel Visionary Awards
program.
