Hotel tech firm relocates HQ from Brazil to Lake Nona

A tech firm that counts more than 500 hotel properties as customers will move its headquarters to Lake Nona from Brazil.

The move aims to bring Erbon Hospitality Solutions closer to one of the more-thriving hotel communities in the world.

Orlando’s tourism industry helps support nearly 500 hotels located in the Orlando metro region.

Erbon’s clients include facilities in eight countries: the U.S., Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Panama, Curaçao and Colômbia.

The company previously received investment from Central Florida-based venVelo and Molayem Capital. CEO and Founder Diogo Nobre Rocha did not disclose the size of that investment.

“Orlando is the city of hospitality,” Rocha said in a brief interview with Orlando Tech News. “The investment from venVelo helped us decide on Orlando. Personally, I love it and moved my residence to Lake Nona.”

Erbon has relocated two people to Florida, including Rocha, and plans to open a physical office in the Lake Nona region in short order.

Erbon’s management platform can handle a hotel’s reservation process, food and beverage ordering and other back-end functions hotels need on a daily basis.
