Frank said: “It was fantastic to collect the award for Best Use of Technology, and is great recognition of the dedication of the entire Avvio team for creating the world’s first AI booking engine, a development process that took almost 18 months.

“At Avvio, we are always innovating to find the best in new technology to help serviced apartments, hotels and other accommodation providers win direct bookings.”

Avvio won the award for its innovative technology, which puts their booking platform at the top of its field for innovating the market.

Frank also presented the award for Best Short-term Rental Platform or Operator which was won by Lavanda.
