We’re excited to announce that Hello Scout was named Most Innovative Startup at the recent Sabre Hospitality Conference in Las Vegas. Sabre’s Annual Conference brings together customers from their portfolio of over 32,000 hotels in 160 countries worldwide.
Sabre debuted their Innovation Competition at this year’s Conference, inviting five of their favorite startups to compete. Each startup was given 8 minutes to pitch their startup, followed by 4 minutes of Q&A from an expert panel. Panelists included Hani Joakim (SVP of Product Development, Sabre), Scott Pusillo (VP of Market Strategy, Viceroy) and Mark Haley (Partner, Prism Partnership).
Hello Scout was chosen by a popular vote from the attendees as the winner for our demo of how on-demand, local concierges could provide a more authentic experience for busy guests.
Other startups invited to join the competition included Suiteness, GuestDriven, Voyat, and Proxce.
