Marek says HotelOga is merging with a company called Savanna Sunrise. That's ok. But I have questions:
- What I don't understand is this "main rival" talk. Isn't that SlimTrader? At least in Nigeria
- Savannah Sunrise is apparently focused on East Africa - http://www.savannasunrise.com/home/our-offices/ so HotelOga joining them gives them a Pan-African footprint right off the bat.
The resulting entity could become the largest hospitality marketing technology group in Africa.
Will they or won't they?
Jointly, both companies already boast a roster that includes deals with Expedia, Booking.com, TripAdvisor, HotelBeds, and CTrip so they will be looking to consolidate.
This is good stuff. Of course, what REALLY matters is how many local hotels they've signed. And I suspect this is where the real race is.
But this is basically good news and congrats to Marek! Read the full story on Pulse: http://pulse.ng/tech/marek-zmyslowskis-marketing-tech-company-merges-with-rival-id6230659.html
