DJ Vallauri, Founder & President of Lodging Interactive, has been proactive and successful in all his social media initiatives through CoMMingle. DJ saw the void of participation on social media from individual hotel properties and in 2010 CoMMingle was born.
Through his insightful projections, CoMMingle has become a successful division of Lodging Interactive solely dedicated to social media marketing, social customer service and reputation management for the Hospitality Industry. Handling over 200,000 hotel guest reviews, CoMMingle has become the world’s largest provider of online reputation management services for the hospitality industry.
Recently, he has led the charge on two new initiatives which take social media to a different level.
- Ask DJV Video Series – Weekly video series on YouTube and cross pollinated to other social networks authentically. Each week he offers suggestions, tips, advice, shares knowledge and answers questions from hospitality leaders. The topics range from social media, social customer service, reputation management and the social ecosystem of a hotel. He is sharing his knowledge and giving back to an industry that gave so much to him.
- CoMMingle Fully Managed Live Chat – CoMMingle Live Chat is the hospitality industry’s leading fully managed real time live chat service for hotels and resorts. CoMMingle Live Chat elevates online customer service to an entirely new level and has shown to increase group RFP’s and online direct bookings for properties. CoMMingle Live Chat combines state of the art technology with trained US based live chat agents to assist your potential guests as they navigate through your website. Our live chat agents are trained to engage with customers, in real time, as an extension of your property’s own sales team.
Social media is about people, relationships and connections. His business initiatives take those areas and blend them seamlessly into the business digital landscape – making it all human again.

He has held sales, marketing and business development positions with companies such as Meridien Hotels, Reed Travel Group, American Airlines‘ – AMR Information Services, Cendant’s subsidiary WizCom International and Prime Hospitality Corp.
