Envoy Goes to Hostelworld Conference, Dublin
No of Post: 0
Every year Hostelworld holds a conference in Dublin and for the first time, Envoy participated in the 2010 event.
The conference was attended by more than 350 delegates from different hostels across the world on the 25th and 26th January. The focus of this years conference was around effective utilisation of Social networks. This is a topic close to Envoy’s heart.
Envoy has been one of the first to adopt and harness the social network channels in Armenia (more info). It was encouraging to find out at the conference that most people have heard about Envoy through facebook and twitter.
The conference was an excellent opportunity to network with other hostel owners and managers and to exchange ideas and learn more about the hostel industry.
Hostelworld also holds an awards event called the Hoscars(Hostelworld Customers Annual Ratings), where the top ranking hostels are recognized. The ranking is based on six criteria: character, security, location, staff, fun and cleanliness.
This years winners included Lisbon based hostels’ Travellers House, Rossio Hostel and Lisbon Lounge (respectively ranked at 98%, 96% and 96%). To compare Envoy Hostel enjoys a ranking of 93% and has consistently achieved the ranking of a Top European Hostel since its inception in 2005.
Best of all, the conference has provided an opportunity for Envoy to cement its relationship with many other hostels and we look forward to the opportunity to meet again at other similar events, and of course to keep in contact through facebook.
