Better reach better guests and earn better bookings that give more.

Greater independent. Stronger together.

Together, we represent over half of the ~$1 trillion hospitality industry and recirculate 3x more revenue back into local communities than foreign-owned chains do. Apart, we depend too heavily on booking websites, who take all 100% of our data and make us pay 50-150% higher commissions than chains and franchises pay.

So, we are uniting together to unlock the strength of a global chain and the reach of a booking website without giving up our revenue, data, and rights.
