NEW YORK, NY —  HEBS Digital received a total of four accolades from the Hermes Creative Awards in recognition of excellence in website design and emerging technologies for its hotel partners. Winner of one Platinum and one Gold award, in addition to two Honorable Mentions, in the Business-to-Consumer category, HEBS Digital was selected among several thousand international entries from creative professionals and agencies as part of the Hermes Creative Awards 2017 competition.


Administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals, the Hermes Creative Awards is an international competition that identifies and rewards outstanding achievements in creativity and design of traditional and emerging media, programs, and technologies.

HEBS Digital and its hotel partners earned the following 2017 Hermes Creative Awards in the Business-to-Consumer category:

  • Platinum Winner: Hotel ZaZa – A bold boutique brand with luxury hotels in Dallas and Houston, Texas
  • Gold Winner: Allegria Spa – A luxury full-service spa in the Rocky Mountains resort city of Beaver Creek, Colorado
  • Honorable Mention: Luma Hotel – A brand new boutique hotel in Midtown Manhattan’s Times Square

Each recognized hotel website is powered by award-winning smartCMS® technology and cutting-edge design concepts and marketing solutions as part of HEBS Digital’s innovative Smart Guest Acquisition Suite and complemented by full-stack digital consulting services aimed at increasing direct bookings and lowering distribution costs for hoteliers and hospitality managers.

“Working with HEBS Digital to build a new website for our business far surpassed my expectations. From the sales experience to having a project manager throughout the build process, to training me on the CMS system, the experience was seamless, organized, and methodical from start to finish. Our clients immediately noticed the improved functionality of our website and are extremely pleased with user experience on both desktop and mobile devices. As a business manager, I appreciate user-friendliness of their SmartCMS system. I can update and edit my website instantly without the hassle of having to wait for an IT specialist. HeBS Digital was the perfect company for us to partner with to take our online business to the next level,” said Christine Copertino, Sales & Marketing Director at Allegria Spa.

“We couldn’t be more proud of this distinction that honors our team’s continued dedication to staying on the razor’s edge of emerging technologies and design in the hospitality industry,” said Mariana Safer, SVP of Global Marketing, HEBS Digital. “Our hotel partners rely on us to provide them with forward-thinking marketing solutions and creative, fresh designs for their most important digital asset—their websites—and this recognition speaks to the immeasurable value our firm is able to provide to our clients.”
