Dayuse.com, the global leader in online “day stay” reservations, won the 2016 People’s Choice Award in the Innovation Launch category. Dayuse.com is the first French company to ever be awarded, in this category at the annual conference, which recognizes the most game changing companies in online travel.

When it comes to tracking innovations driving change in travel, Phocuswright has long been the industry authority. The annual event brings together the movers and shakers in the travel and hospitality industries, and identifies the most innovative companies in online travel.

Chosen by a panel of expert travel and technology judges from around the world, the finalists competed in an “Innovation Launch” in three categories -- startup, emerging and established. Dayuse.com won in the “established” category for its ability to scale its daytime reservations platform through seamless connectivity to global reservation systems. This is a breakthrough in an industry where, for the longest time, the paradigm was fixed at one room equals one night only.

“To be rewarded by the travel industry's most savvy and engaged audience is a great honor for me and my team,” said David Lebée, CEO and founder of Dayuse.com. “We are a game changer for the industry and this shows that people now see its full potential, just like we do. It’s a turning point for Dayuse.com; the promise of continued success as we expand globally.”

Microstays are the biggest trend in the online booking space. Finding a private space during the busy day to focus, or simply getaway for a few hours, is an act of self-care that consumers are willing to pay hotels for. One of the key factors in Dayuse.com’s success is the company’s financials. In 2016 alone, Dayuse.com generated almost $20 million in incremental revenues for hotel partners -- capitalizing on under-utilized capacity of hotel rooms.

Phocuswright's President, Simon Lehmann, stated in the official press release that Phocuswright consistently unveils the most pioneering ideas, and that 2016 is no exception. He believes that the companies awarded will have a huge impact on the travel landscape in the future.
