International travel membership company, WorldVentures, will this weekend unveil its new Australian headquarters in Western Sydney, its first local office that will help service a business that has experienced record membership take-up in Australia over the past 12 months. The facility will significantly increase its presence in the market, create local jobs and enable WorldVentures to facilitate more local, tailored DreamTrips holidays for its members, as well as provide space for the company’s growing workforce and professional development requirements.

WorldVentures has been growing at a phenomenal rate around the world, with this office and training centre an important part of its Australian growth plans. Globally, the company now has more than 500,000 members in over 28 countries. It has grown 581 per cent over the last three years alone and generated revenues of more than US$560m in 2015.

In addition to managing its local membership growth, the new Australian office will be responsible for planning and expanding membership benefits, which include the anticipated 250 DreamTrips (curated group holiday experiences) planned all around Australia in 2017 alone for its global membership base, a 400 per cent increase from just two years ago.

Such trips bring in tourists from around the world, contributing to inbound tourism and delivering tourists to key Australian destinations including Hamilton Island, Hayman Island, Alice Springs and Margaret River to name a few. WorldVentures already enjoys strong relationships with key premium hotels and other suppliers that will only continue to grow with an expanded local presence.

As part of the expansion WorldVentures plans to hire new employees in customer service, administration, marketing and tourism, with 20 new hires anticipated over the next 12 months. Australian based travel experts will create even more Australian DreamTrips packages including local tours, hotels and unique experiences that will be available to both Australian and International members.

“Australia is one of our fastest growing markets globally and is a strong areas of focus for WorldVentures. Our new local headquarters opening is an important next step as we continue this exciting phase of growth,” said Kyle Lowe, Senior Vice President of Global Sales and International Expansion, WorldVentures, who is in Sydney for the opening.

“We continue to disrupt the International travel industry, empower everyday people to make a positive change to their lives, and offer our members compelling and unique travel experiences with our DreamTrips, and we couldn’t be more delighted that Australian consumers have embraced this concept so warmly,” he added.
