AccorHotels and LinkedIn aims to connect travellers on the move

accor-and-linkedinBusiness Check powered by LinkedIn allows travellers to identify people in their professional network who are based in the city they are in and suggesting relevant profiles to connect with.

Romain Roulleau, senior vice president for e-commerce & digital services at AccorHotels, says the partnership is a world first in the hospitality industry.

“It will enrich the services we already offer on our mobile app which is used before, during and after the stay, notably by business travellers, who represent 60 per cent of the app’s users,” he said.

“This new feature creates business opportunities, and our app will therefore facilitate and foster seamless, instinctive business travel sharing, thus generating guest engagement and visibility for our hotels.”

Joshua Graff, VP marketing solutions EMEA at LinkedIn, says the new feature will make it even easier to connect with clients, prospects, suppliers and colleagues “old and new”.

“There are over 26 million business travellers on LinkedIn and by partnering with one of the world’s leading travel groups, these professionals can now be even more informed, connected and productive while on the go,” he said.
