Native advertising, meet sponsored content

Place your brand front and center where buyers are researching solutions.  Each guide is featured on the Hotel Tech Report home page, category pages, the reports library and even product profiles in your category for a full year.

Make your brand the go-to thought leader and trusted advisor for prospects during their research and slide to the top of their consideration list.

The golden rule of content marketing is “be there and be helpful”.  Today’s buyer is tired of being sold and has become desensitized to self promotional content.  Co-branded content with HTR allows you to produce content that buyers trust and stands out in the market.  Educate hoteliers researching solutions alongside other top vendors in their respective categories to position your brand as the go-to thought leader in your category.
