Roomlinx, Inc. (OTC: RMLX), an innovative supplier of hospitality in-room Interactive TV products, announced it has been honored as the winner of the International Technium Challenge, an annual competition for innovative businesses from around the world.

Roomlinx beat international entries, including finalists from South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and India. In addition to office space, Roomlinx will receive a business support package in legal, marketing and business advice.

The Technium Challenge, established in 2003, has become a worldwide high-profile business planning competition, which identifies and supports innovative businesses with high growth potential. The global competition is organized each year by Technium with support from the Welsh Assembly Government's inward investment arm, International Business Wales (IBW), and will give this year's winners a passport to open an office in Wales.

Welsh Assembly Government Deputy First Minister, Ieuan Wyn Jones, said, "Roomlinx stood out from the beginning, especially in terms of its business proposition for expansion into the U.K. market. We look forward to following the progress of this exciting and forward-thinking enterprise as it looks to build a sustainable business here in Wales.”

Roomlinx intends to penetrate the European market by first targeting the United Kingdom, which will be hosting the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

“The honor of winning the International Technium Challenge is an enormous stepping stone for Roomlinx to expand into Europe, beginning with the U.K.,” said Roomlinx CEO Mike Wasik. “Recognition from an established international competition, where we were pitted against other worldwide innovations, serves as further validation that the Roomlinx platform is a universal evolution of in-room media.”

Roomlinx was also recently positioned as the official in-room media solution for InterContinental Hotels Group and IBM’s Hotel-in-a-Box solution, which offers a suite of cutting-edge technologies to hotel managers.
