By Editor | On Sun, December 07, 2014

Bookassist ( has been crowned World’s Leading Booking Engine Technology Provider for an unprecedented third successive year at the 2014 World Travel Awards (

This third win confirms Bookassist as the only booking engine provider in the world, specialised in hotels, to win three successive titles.

The Dublin-headquartered company with worldwide operations won the prestigious World Travel Award title in 2012 and 2013. They picked up their third successive win on Sunday December 7th at the Grand Final ceremony in Anguilla as a result of strong voting from the global hotel and travel industry.

“To win once could be luck, twice and you’re definitely doing something right, but to win three consecutive titles leaves the industry in no doubt that Bookassist is now a world-leading travel technology brand. It’s a fantastic feeling,” said Dr Des O’Mahony, CEO and Co-Founder of Bookassist.

The record third win is an endorsement of the whole team and a win for the company’s hotel clients who place their trust in Bookassist. It’s a particularly strong achievement in a fast-paced industry, given the calibre of fellow nominated companies, including industry powerhouses and former winners Sabre and Amadeus.

The World Travel Awards are voted on by the global travel industry and carry significant weight for winning brands. Now officially ranked as the World’s Leading Booking Engine Technology Provider, Bookassist will continue to be a highly sought after brand for hotels that are serious about their direct online business.

Commenting on the support received from the global hotel industry, Des O’Mahony said: “The level of support, the messages of encouragement we have received is truly humbling. It tells us that our winning formula of helping hotels to maximise margin on their online bookings through the use of our technology, expert advice and support is what hotels really value. It absolutely validates what we do, delivering exactly what the hotel industry needs, and at the highest standards.”
