For the first time, four times Special Events 25 Top DMC and one of the largest DMC Groups in the world – Global DMC Network by JTB Group – will feature all of its companies during ITB Asia 2019. This “Global Village” debut in Singapore will showcase the multi-dimensions and global presence of the Group. The purpose of this omnipresence is to display unlimited travel possibilities to (potential) Asia Pacific partners.
“This is the first time that all of our companies are present at ITB Asia with a shared booth,’’ says Abrar Uppal, Senior Manager Global Marketing of the Global DMC Network by JTB Group. “We really wish to showcase our strength as One Group in Asia Pacific. Are you looking for a service not available in a certain destination? No problem, another DMC underneath our umbrella, which is present in the desired destination will take care of all your needs. We are proud to be a Global Village.”
The companies attending are: Tour East (Tours in Top 10 Experiences TripAdvisor in Singapore), JTB Global Marketing and Travel (Japan Inbound), LOTTE JTB (South-Korea Inbound), Kuoni Global Travel Services, Tumlare Destination Management (Europe), Europamundo Vacaciones (Seat-in-Coach Tour Operator), TPI (Americas) and – for the first time ever – MC&A, Inc. (Hawaiian Islands and USA destination and event management and conference planning).
The European side of the Network accommodates to the trend: e.g., Tumlare Destination Management offers igloo tours and Small Groups in Chinese in the Eastern European and Scandinavian regions. The recent possibility from October 1st 2019 to obtain an e-visa for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Oblast area for many APAC travellers will simplify the process for Guaranteed Departure tours to Russia.
On the East Asian side, JTB Global Marketing & Travel Inc., focuses on presenting the essence of Japanese hospitality as well as specialist knowledge in a Japan getting ready to host two of the biggest sports events in the world. One kicked off in late September.
