“The travel industry has faced an obstacle that no one could have predicted or prepared for this year, and while it’s been challenging, our teams have done an amazing job expanding our business through our service lines and products such as Koddi Ads. This product comes at a critical time as every hotel and hotel chain is looking to recover, maximize bookings and recapture lost revenue,” said Nicholas Ward, President and Co-founder of Koddi. “We are also very excited about our partnership with Priceline, one of the most recognized and reputable brands in our industry. This collaboration will benefit Priceline as well as hoteliers who are seeking to grow as the industry recovers from COVID-19.”
Today Koddi is announcing a strategic partnership with Priceline, which allows Priceline to leverage Koddi solutions to become a new channel for hotel suppliers to open new revenue streams for the travel market. Through this relationship, Priceline will be able to leverage Koddi Ads to adapt to ever-changing consumer behaviors and aid in the hotel recovery planning process. Hotels will be able to use the Koddi Ads platform to gain increased visibility and sales through Priceline’s website.
“Consumer behavior is never fixed. It constantly evolves, and we evolve in turn,” said Maryellen D’Aiuto, Vice President of Digital Marketing at Priceline. “Koddi Ads give us the flexibility to be responsive to shifting behaviors and sentiments, which is not only important in the current environment, but important at any time.”
In addition to the momentum Koddi Ads has generated, the company also announced it has expanded into the vacation rental and alternative accommodations space. Koddi is looking to bring its advanced marketing technology solutions to a segment of the travel industry that lacks some of the technological mechanisms currently found in the hotel space.

That is why earning the 2020 Stevie® Awards for Great Employers means so much to our company.”
Koddi’s complete network of solutions for the travel and hospitality industries are built to drive revenue by putting brands in front of the customers who are looking to buy.
