Hotel booking agent Hotelzon has acquired the HVO Hotel Booking Company from its Finnish parent company, Fonecta. The deal will see Hotelzon used as the sole hotel booking partner for Fonecta, which runs Finland’s most popular telephone directory service ‘020202’. “The cooperation agreement and acquisition support Hotelzon’s growth strategy,” said Jani Kaskinen, CEO of Hotelzon (pictured). “Synergy between Hotelzon’s technology and Fonecta’s service concept is evident.” Lauri Kangaslahti added that the partnership would allow Fonecta to offer a better service. “We can use Hotelzon’s high quality hotel booking system and a more comprehensive hotel inventory than we previously have,” he said.
