VFM Leonardo’s VNetwork Expands To Include Key International Channels

Recent agreements with prominent travel websites leads to growth in South America, Saudi Arabia, Russia and the UK.

Toronto, ON, Canada – August 20, 2013 – VFM Leonardo, technology and online media company for the global hospitality industry, announced today several new partnerships in key international markets that solidify the VNetwork as the largest media distribution network in the global travel industry. New VNetwork channels include:

  • Mundi – the largest Flight and Hotel meta-search website in Latin America
  • Flyin.com – the first comprehensive Online Travel Agency in Saudi Arabia
  • OneTwoTrip.com – the largest Online Travel Agency in Eastern Europe
  • Reed & MacKay – a full service travel and event company in the United Kingdom

To meet the increasing demand from consumers for a more visual hotel shopping experience, Mundi, Flyin.com, OneTwoTrip.com and Reed & MacKay will access VFM Leonardo’s extensive image database so as to offer travel shoppers a richer, more visual experience online.

To manage images displayed on any of these travel channels, Hotel Chains will use their existing VScape Digital Asset Management system license. Hotel properties that subscribe to VFM Leonardo’s VBrochure Online Merchandising System will have the added benefit of enhancing the visual experience provided to travel shoppers on each of these channels, by delivering a customized version of the VPowered Multi-Media Player to display their videos, virtual tours and photos online.

VFM Leonardo’s large network of travel websites (VNetwork) continues to grow. With over 100 direct connect travel websites combined with thousands of indirect channels, the network offers the broadest reach of in-market travel shoppers in the industry. The addition of these four new international channels furthers VFM Leonardo as a global presence with distribution reaching across the world.
