Following a successful programme of growth in 2016, leading global travel management and events business ATPI Voyager – part of the ATPI Group – today announces that chief operating officer Peter Muller has re-located from the U.K to Australia. Peter will be responsible for driving growth and the management of the Asia Pacific region.

Throughout 2016 ATPI continued its expansion with the acquisition of two new businesses to its portfolio, Plan B Travel in Melbourne and New Zealand-based Business World Travel. Coupled with a host of business wins and investment in new technology, the last 12 months has seen the company appoint new partners in Turkey, Poland, Chile, the Balkans and Sweden ensuring that the Group continues to deliver all the benefits of local knowledge and expertise within its global network.

Business travel managers continue to incorporate the latest technology solutions into their travel programmes, including the launch of ATPI Analytics, a powerful technology that offers a fresh perspective on data analysis for procurement teams and travel managers.  Most recently, an upgrade to the ATPI On The Go mobile app has been released to all app stores, which syncs travellers profiles across all proprietary systems with features including facilities for business travellers to update their personal profile and a directory of emergency contacts.

The Group also successfully launched ATPI Sports Events in Australia, which is a leader in event management and hospitality packages for global sporting events.  The business has recently announced its appointment as an official travel package provider for England’s premiership football team Arsenal’s forthcoming tour to Sydney in July 2017 and will operate as the global official hospitality agency for the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18 edition.

ATPI Sports Events also enjoyed a successful year across the globe. Most notably it celebrated its own Olympic efforts at the Games’ first South American event. Offering official Rio 2016 packages for the Dutch market, ATPI Sports Events organised over 12,000 room nights and 2,500 flights for athletes, sponsors and fans.  Having proved the strength of its logistical capabilities the team are now looking forward to the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Games in South Korea.

Peter Muller, chief operating officer, the ATPI Group, comments:

“2016 was a year of development and innovation for us. Our commitment to innovating has enabled us to deliver travel management programmes that enable our clients to manage their growth more efficiently.  This focus, matched with our global knowledge and expertise, has paid dividends in enabling us to continue to grow and we look forward to further developments in 2017.”
