April 13, 2011

Hospitality eBusiness Strategies (HeBS Digital), the industry leader in hotel website design and digital marketing services, today announces receipt of five Internet Advertising Competition (IAC) awards for excellence in hotel and restaurant website design, mobile website design, online banner ad design and interactive multichannel marketing.

HeBS Digital received the following IAC awards:


HeBS also received an Outstanding Website award for La Bellasera Hotel & Suites.

“The major awards given by the IAC are indicative of the larger role our efforts play for our clients: capturing and retaining the attention of consumers who are constantly on-the-go and becoming increasingly aware of their control over the way they receive and interact with any given hotel’s marketing messages. Every new hotel website and digital marketing campaign needs to meet the same demands. HeBS is honored to have won these awards for our clients, and looks forward to creating more websites and campaigns that drive incremental and serious ROIs, as well as reach and engage hotel customers at every touch point” said Max Starkov, Chief eBusiness Strategist at HeBS.

The Internet Advertising Competition (IAC) Awards are presented by the Web Marketing Association to honor excellence in online advertising, to recognize the individuals and organizations responsible, and to showcase award-winning Internet advertising. Entries in the Internet Advertising Competition were judged on six elements: creativity, innovation, impact, design, copywriting and use of the medium.

“We had a lot of ideas coming in for the Vū Restaurant website from a variety of players. HeBS assisted in organizing the ideas while educating us and applying best practices. The patience involved by all parties was immense and working with HeBS always results in pieces that present above and beyond our expectations. We look forward to many other successful projects with the HeBS Team” said Gidget Graten-Strasburg, Marketing Manager for Pacifica Hotel Company.
