VRWS Leadership Interview of the Day

In approaching the 11th edition of the Vacation Rental World Summit, we’re releasing a series of interviews to leaders, key players and highly motivated people in our industry whose companies make a deep impact in our space and will be present at VRWS.

The aim is to get you some insight into these leaders and the company they founded, manage or work for, as well as getting some behind the scenes on their thinking, their motivation and their drive.



Founder @ Ringo Lock

1.What do you do for a living and which part of your job do you enjoy the most? 

I manage a company called Ringo which is producing a door opening/controlling device that can turn any door into a smart door. You can open any doors remotely or share a digital key. I love talking to our clients after a couple of months of using Ringo to hear their feedback. We are working very hard and are willing to do extra steps for our clients. Today we are very proud to say that we haven’t lost a customer yet and that we have happy clients who even treat us with tiramisu 🙂 

2. How does your company innovate or adapt to the evolving needs of the vacation rental space? 

Ringo is simplifying entries. For Guests: it is a simple and visual experience where they receive a digital key which they use to enter any door via their phone. 

For host: they can use one solution for many different types of doors, locks or entrances, Ringo fits all. There are no limitations. Of course Ringo also integrates with third party services like channel managers to automate the hosting processes

3. How do you view the various predictions about AI’s impact on society, ranging from dystopian scenarios to transformative advancements, and how does your company approach or integrate AI technology? 

AI will simplify or it already is simplifying many tasks for us. We are using AI services every day in our work and sooner or later it will probably be a part pf our solution. We are very pragmatic and we don’t think about dystopian scenarios 🙂

4. What would you like to achieve by attending the Vacation Rental World Summit 2024 in Porto with your company? 

Educate and inform many new potential partners about our solution Ringo and consequently as well grow our client portfolio.

5. What are your passions, including any hobbies or sports, that you enjoy discussing and sharing with others outside the professional setting?

The team that comes to Porto are tennis players, bringing the gear with us. If there is someone that wants to play, let us know 🙂

Sports are really important for the anti stress exercise to relax your body and clear your mind. And at the same time it can also be a business networking activity. 

You’ll have the opportunity to meet Peter directly at VRWS in Porto
