Last night, WorldMate won the prestigious EyeForTravel Best Mobile App award among a group of impressive startups including Gogobot, Hipmunk, Jetsetter, and HotelTonight. Our congratulations to all of the runners up.
The contenders were whittled down to 4 finalists, and each of us gave a 5 minute presentation in front of a panel of judges. One of the judges had the role of being the "Simon Cowell" asking tough questions and spitting out harsh comments. We presented last, and all that judge could say was "You knocked my socks off". That was it — no questions, no criticisms. Apparently we won in a route.
With this EyeForTravel award, WorldMate has now won Best App awards at a prestigious consumer travel event to go alongside our Best App awards in business travel (GBTA) and mobile (GSMA, Meffys). These successes are testament to the incredible skill and tireless energy of our team and to our users who provide invaluable feedback— both good and bad— that we take to heart and use as inspiration to keep driving the mobile travel industry forward.
Thank you for all of your support.
