Traveltek debuts in Southeast Asia
UK-headquartered Traveltek Group Ltd has made its debut in Southeast Asia, opening an office in Singapore headed up by Javine Tan.
Tan, responsible for developing commercial opportunities in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Myanmar, has worked in business development and marketing roles for Star Cruises and Royal Caribbean.
“Travel businesses in the region are very keen to know how Traveltek’s advanced technology can help them maximise distribution channels and sales,” explained Tan, “Selling travel, particularly cruise, is largely a manual process in Asia and so Traveltek fills a huge void in the market, providing a platform that ticks every box, from dynamic packaging to live access to more than 300 suppliers, including 190 cruise lines, via our API.”
“Traveltek’s 20 years of industry experience and its roster of big-name clients, from Flight Centre to Virgin Holidays Cruises, are piquing the interest of potential clients too,” she said. “In addition, companies are approaching us to help them establish an online presence, based on our experience transforming small retail operations into e-commerce successes.”
Traveltek’s foray in South-East Asia follows the company’s debut in North Asia last month (September), with the opening of an office in Hong Kong. To boost awareness of its new operations in Asia, Traveltek is participating in several events in Singapore this month: Web In Travel (WIT) on 23-25 October; the Travolution Digital Masters Executive Dinner on 24 October and ITB Asia on 25-27 October.
