26 Feb 2013

 

www.rezidor.com ranked 2nd best website in travel & leisure sector in Europe

The new corporate website of Rezidor, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, has been ranked 2nd best website of the travel & leisure sector in Europe by KWD WebRanking. www.rezidor.com took the leaders board right after Autogrill’s website, and ahead of major players like Lufthansa, TUI Travels and all other hotel groups.

“We are very proud of this accomplishment. Our website is one of our most important communication tools for the investors community, media and other key stakeholders. It is a firm reflection of Rezidor’s Z-factor and the creativity and innovation of our group”, commented Wolfgang M. Neumann, President & CEO of Rezidor.

KWD WebRanking is the first and most transparent ranking of corporate websites. Based on research of what the target groups of corporate websites – analysts, investors, business journalists and job seekers – expect and require, KWD ranks more than 900 websites globally. The ranking protocol 2012-2013, which consisted of 100 criteria in 10 sections, was based on 500 responses from the capital market and job seekers. In total there were 326 measurements – 65 of those were about social media and search.

www.rezidor.com was re-launched in March 2012 as a dynamic, compelling and easy-to-use corporate website. It features essential Rezidor information and ensures the most effective, transparent communication with all stakeholders and potential employees. The website received maximum KWD scores in many areas, including the corporate start page, press room, corporate responsibility, careers, major shareholder information, and risk management.

The stylish, yet extremely functional design of www.rezidor.com has been created by using the latest web technology. For content management of time sensitive Media and Investor Relation information Rezidor co-operates with industry leader Thomson Reuters.
