WorldRes in Sophia : staff reduced to the minimum
WorldRes, the worldwide network for on-line hotel booking (18.000 affiliated hotels), did not manage to reach the objective that was scheduled for France. Fro the moment, the progression of on-line hotel booking did not explode. The result : lay-offs. The American company, which chose Sophia Antipolis in 1999 for the base of the settlement in France and South-Europe, is significantly reducing. Out of the ten people who worked on the urban research park for WorldRes, Michel Jannet, the general manager for France and South-Europe, should be the only one to stay.
