Lodging Interactive, an award-winning digital marketing and social media engagement agency exclusively serving the hospitality industry celebrates its 20th anniversary. Lodging Interactive has been helping hundreds of hospitality customers since 2001 and the company shows no signs of slowing down as it continues its growth through ongoing diversification.
“August marks the month, 20 years ago, when we decided to launch Lodging Interactive and it’s hard to believe the business has grown from a blank sheet of paper to where it is today, a multi-million dollar successful enterprise employing many,” said DJ Vallauri, Lodging Interactive’s Founder and CEO. “I’m proud of our loyal customers and team members who have made Lodging Interactive such a success, as without them it would not have been possible.”
In 2007, Lodging Interactive launched Chatter Guard the hospitality industry’s first reputation management service.

Today, CoMMingle:Engage offers the hospitality industry’s premier social media marketing, engagement and reputation management services. Customer properties include hundreds of hotels, restaurants, spas, and management companies around the globe.
