"We are honored to receive recognition of our work in the travel industry by Skift," said Pau Sabria, CEO and co-founder, Olapic. "Travel marketers are burdened with the high cost and long timelines of generating fresh content. Volumes of amazing visual lifestyle content are being produced by travelers at a rapid pace. This content provides valuable and compelling authenticity, that when placed in the booking path, keeps consumers engaged where it matters most -- at the point of purchase."

Olapic helps travel brands drive bookings and increase online engagement rates by showcasing traveler experiences through authentic consumer images from social media networks such as Instagram. By collecting thousands of hashtagged consumer photos and tagging each one to a specific location, brands can match images or videos directly to individual properties, destinations or amenities. Olapic's platform also allows brands to manage, sort, and filter millions of images while obtaining explicit creator rights at scale -- a task simply not possible on a manual basis.
