CIRQ+, a disruptive IoT technology, took top honors as Best New Hotel Product and Best of Show during the 2018 Editor’s Choice Awards at the Hotel Experience (HX) Sunday, Nov. 11 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
All HX exhibitors were invited to enter a new product – introduced to the market since November 2017. Entries were judged by editors of the hospitality industry’s leading trade magazines including Glenn Hasek, Green Lodging News; Stefani O’Connor, Hotel Management; Michael Scinto, Total Food Service; and Gregg Wallis, Hotel Business.
CIRQ+ is a patented, cloud-based platform that instantly modernizes any hotel room by transforming into a Smart Room for Smart Guests. The state-of-the-art Energy Management System (EMS), combined with a modular and future-proofed in-room hub, bridges the gap between guest comfort and engagement while reducing property operating costs.
The system consolidates numerous legacy in-room products into a unified solution – from EMS, power outlets, charging, alarm clock, Bluetooth speaker, to thermostat controls and more. Guests can control their in-room settings from an app on their mobile phone or from the CIRQ+ in-room hub, giving them comfort, convenience and connectivity at their fingertips. Additionally, guests have the ability to migrate their personal preferences from CIRQ+ enabled properties to maximize their experience, build loyalty and add value.
The platform allows properties to stay current with evolving technology and the needs of guests without undergoing major disruption or investment. The system has been commercialized to evolve with the ever-shifting demands brought on by time, technology changes, and tech savvy guests for years to come.
HX is a high visibility, hospitality focused conference that is attended by more than 7,000 hotel owners, GMs and operators from around the world.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by industry leaders and experts who understand how our CIRQ+ platform can be a disruptive solution for hotels allowing them to instantly modernize their rooms and reduce energy consumption with a unified system,” said Yani Deros, Founder and CEO of CIRQ+.
In addition to the prestigious award, CIRQ+ was one of five finalists for the annual HX TECHPitch. Deros also engaged with other Forward Thinking Leaders during the Fireside Chat on Emerging Trends.
