2016 was a year of strong growth for the ATPI Group. The leading global travel management and events business has expanded its portfolio with the acquisition of Plan B Travel in Melbourne and New Zealand-based Business World Travel.

Coupled with a host of new business wins, partnerships agreements across Europe and South America and investment in new technology, the last 12 months has seen the company take significant steps to develop its global operations.

New partners appointed in Turkey, Poland, Chile, the Balkans and Sweden ensure that the Group continues to deliver all the benefits of local knowledge and expertise within its global network to clients based in the US.

Business travel managers continue to incorporate the latest technology solutions into their travel programs, including the launch of ATPI Analytics, a powerful technology that offers a fresh perspective on data analysis for procurement teams and travel managers.  Plus recent enhancement to ATPI’s duty of care technology includes employee tracking and global destination risk assessment.

The team at ATPI Sports Events, the dedicated sports, hospitality and events logistics division of the Group, celebrated a strong summer of sport, delivering an Olympic effort during the Games’ first South American event. Offering official Rio 2016 packages for the Dutch market, ATPI Sports Events organized over 12,000 room nights, 2,500 flights, 1,500 restaurant bookings, 200 bike rides, 60 wheelchairs, 50 coaches, 10 massage tables, plus around-the-clock-assistance during the 28 days of sport. Having proved the strength of its logistical capabilities the team are now looking forward to the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games in South Korea.

Gary Pearce, Chief Commercial Officer, ATPI, comments:
