ATPI expands international network: four new partners added
New partners across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and South America are now part of the international network of the ATPI Group. The expansion enhances the reach of the global travel management and events leader in key strategic locations relevant to servicing its client portfolio.
In Spain, new partner Azul Marino adds office locations in Bilbao, Barcelona and Madrid. A strong addition to ATPI’s growing footprint in Latin America, the Quito-based Euroviajes brings Ecuador into the Group, following a new network partner appointed in Peru in 2020. Heading east in a key location for the global energy industry, the Erbil-headquartered London Sky adds representation in Iraq. While in Vietnam, the Ho Chi Minh City-based Quang Thinh complements ATPI’s network in South East Asia. As one of the fastest growing economies in Asia, Vietnam is an exciting addition to support ATPI’s growing client base in that region.
Jeroen van Hest, director international network and commercial services, ATPI, explains:
“Strengthening our network partner reach in the locations most relevant to our clients ensures that the highest standards of personal service delivery are enhanced with true local market expertise. We hand-pick our network partners and value their strong local reputations to bolster our multinational business. As our clients around the world continue to face the challenges of travelling and delivering essential business during the Covid-19 pandemic, we are proud to have the best teams on-the-ground in cities around the world that are strategic locations for the industry sectors we represent.”
The four new partners and long-term extensions follow the announcement of partners in Egypt, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Qatar and Peru in 2020. New network partners are backed with industry-leading technology and data support, training and access to ATPI’s multinational capabilities, which span specialist sectors like energy, marine and sports, as well as the Direct ATPI Global Travel organisation.
Recently ATPI announced the acquisition of German travel agency Hamburg Süd Reiseagentur GmbH from Danish shipping conglomerate A.P. Moller – Maersk.
ATPI’s expanded network ensures consistent service, industry sector expertise and best-in-class relationships across regional markets most relevant to its client portfolio. All of ATPI’s clients – wherever they are in the world – enjoy access to local service in the destinations important to their business, strong client engagement from industry-sector experts, as well as the benefits of multinational scale. The bespoke network brings additional reassurance and efficiency in the current climate, where travel restrictions vary wildly across the world and change quickly.
