Nuestros fundadores lanzaron bidroom.com después de tener innumerables conversaciones con los hoteleros y escuchar que estaban extremadamente frustrados con el pago de altas comisiones y no tener control sobre sus ingresos y comunicación con sus clientes. Queremos cambiar eso y hacer del mercado un lugar más justo para los hoteles y sus huéspedes. Somos el cambio. ¡Juntos somos la revolución!
La idea tras Bidroom es traer equidad a la industria hotelera. Queremos ser el punto de encuentro entre hoteleros y clientes.
Michael Ros y Casper Knieriem lanzan la primera versión beta de bidroom.com en La Haya. La plataforma evoluciona rápidamente.
