Oveedia Receives Validation From Jetblue Passenger Consensus

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2016) - Pure Hospitality Solutions, Inc. (OTC PINK: PNOW), parent Company of the Central American-Caribbean online travel Agency (OTA) Oveedia (www.Oveedia.com), announced today that the Company has continued validation of its marketing plan, after receiving a small, but undeniable proof of interest in travel to Central America; in particular, Costa Rica -- based on a social experiment conducted by JetBlue (JetBlue Airways Corporation).

"It nearly brought tears to my eyes to watch 150 strangers on a JetBlue airplane reach a consensus that of all the destinations JetBlue flies to, Costa Rica was ultimately the unanimous decision," stated Melvin Pereira, President of Pure Hospitality Solutions. "This undoubtedly validates our decision to focus the development of Pure's primary operations in Central America and the Caribbean. It is a win for the Latin America travel industry... a win for the Central American market... and certainly, it is a small victory for me, being a native of Costa Rica, the birthplace of Oveedia."

On Monday, February 22nd, 2016, CREATIVITY released a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPurzKVTlU4) showing a micro campaign launched by JetBlue called, "Reach Across the Aisle." This social experiment aimed to demonstrate that when given the opportunity, people will choose to compromise, find common ground and discover that teamwork is inherent, even amongst strangers. The Challenge? Passengers would win a free JetBlue roundtrip ticket to anywhere the airline travels (domestic or international), but only if all 150 traveling strangers unanimously decided on a single destination.

Ultimately, after much discussion, lobbying, and presentations of debate; 150 JetBlue passengers, unanimously chose to travel to Costa Rica.

What this JetBlue experiment did for Pure was prove that Central America is an undiscovered, untapped market that travelers truly wish to experience. "We chose to build Oveedia as the premier online travel agency for Central America and the Latin countries of the Caribbean, because we know this to be true," commented Mr. Pereira. "And from a business perspective, we are not reinventing the wheel." 

Mr. Pereira concluded, "We are carving out a niche in online travel by aggressively pursuing a region of the world that is in the midst of rapid economic development and an explosive growth in tourism. Not to mention, producing a brand that has the first mover advantage in a $34 Billion market. Oveedia.com is the type of OTA major companies like Priceline consider for acquisition, and we intend to bring this type of value to our shareholders."
