Roomex.com was awarded the Deloitte Technology Rising Star Award for 2008 at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin last night. With growth of over 3,100% over the last 3 years, Roomex.com is fast becoming one of the most widely used booking hotel portals in Ireland and Europe.
Speaking after the awards ceremony last night, Jack Donaghy, Managing Director of Roomex, was absolutely delighted with the award and excited for the future – "We’re thrilled and somewhat surprised with the award – it’s a vindication of all the hard work we have put in over the last 3 years. Roomex.com is becoming a strong online brand and beginning to get good traction across Europe and we expect to double sales again next year. We will increase from the 20,000 hotels worldwide that we have at present to 75,000 hotels by the end of 2008 and we will continue to bring better prices to our growing customer base which already exceeds 100,000."
This is not the first time Mr. Donaghy has featured in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards – his original company, Webtrade, a web development firm also based in Dublin, has been listed in the Fast 50 for the past 7 years, culminating in a 3rd place finish in 2004 !
