June 26, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

Leading DMC The + World has teamed up with former Ovation owners Patrick M Delaney and Pádraic Gilligan to create a network of wholly-owned DMCs servicing key tier 1 destinations. With offices already in Italy (+39 Italy), Spain (+34 Spain) and Portugal (+351 Portugal), Delaney and Gilligan will work with The + World CEO, Lorenzo Pignatti on strengthening market position and on future expansion plans.

“The market needs a network of super-DMCs working in busy tier 1 cities like Rome, Venice, Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Paris and London, providing clients with best-in-class local destination knowledge and the guarantee of a consistent brand experience across all locations. The fully-owned model allows us to offer clients multi-destination multi-year agreements thereby maximizing logistical, operational, contractual and financial benefits” said CEO of The + World, Lorenzo Pignatti DMCP and Destination Management Professional of the Year (2015).

“We’re delighted to work with Lorenzo and help him hone his vision for a small network of super-elite DMCs all operating to global quality standards while delivering the most creative and cost effective local experiences. The + World, in our view, is developing a strong and compelling brand value proposition that draws equally on the benefits of global and local structures” said Patrick Delaney, former Managing Director of Ovation and now Managing Partner at SoolNua.

“Our previous experience has given us a unique insight into the DMC world and its rapid evolution. We look forward to working with Lorenzo on building out The + World as a small but successful group of truly extraordinary DMCs. We’re currently strengthening corporate structures at The + World HQ in advance of identifying and building DMC dream teams in other key locations” said Pádraic Gilligan, Destination Management Professional of the Year (2013) and Managing Partner at SoolNua.
