Virtuoso’s best announced at APAC Regional Forum Beijing

May 21, 2019 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Top luxury travel agencies and partner suppliers across the Asia Pacific Region have been awarded at the Virtuoso network’s Asia Pacific Forum held in Beijing where more than 60 members gathered for two days of workshops and events.

Recognising the production performance of Virtuoso’s agency members and product partners, the 2019 APAC Luxury Awards are a true measurement of achievement, commitment and outstanding performance.

“Virtuoso members and suppliers are already well established as the best of the best in their category,” Virtuoso Asia Pacific Managing Director, Michael Londregan said.

“In a marketplace that often sees travel agents as mere distributors of product, Virtuoso’s members and suppliers recognise personalised service is critical in differentiating and connecting with their clients in today’s marketplace.

“Over the past 12 months, Virtuoso revenues for Australia and New Zealand grew by 30% so this year’s award winners have achieved exceptional growth in a business that is already outpacing the rest of the market quite significantly.”

Mr Londregan said while the Australian travel market grew by an estimated 4% in the past year, Virtuoso’s awards recognised its members who have been able to both growth their own business and maintain significant volumes for their luxury suppliers.

“The trusted advice that Virtuoso members provide is the fuel that continues to drive our incredible growth. We are definitely moving share towards the best products in the market and our award winners are seeing the results that occur when knowledge, professionalism, experience and relationships manifest into into the value proposition offered to clients.”

The Virtuoso Asia Pacific Luxury Awards are a measure of product and advisor performance for luxury travel products booked in the Asia Pacific region in the past 12 months.  Set across 15 categories, the awards reflect performance and highlight the travel advisors and products servicing customers at the highest level across .
