BREAKING NEWS Travelbiz - The Next Chapter

10th November 2017 - 4:55pm

Gerry Benson, (Publisher & Editor Travelbiz) has today announced the sale of Travelbiz to current CEO Don Shearer.


"This is a step in the right direction to securing the continued success and growth of Travelbiz as Ireland’s number one Travel Trade Media publication. Don has brought a new energy and focus to the business with the launch of new products and has exciting plans for the future that will bring the business to the next level on a national and international stage.


Don has very kindly asked me to remain in the business as a brand ambassador, which will keep me involved: occasionally working with the trade covering functions, Fams /press trips and trade events. Don and I will also be working on new trade partnerships and product developments which will be unveiled in due course.


The busiest and most experienced trade media team that is Travelbiz will continue their great work reporting on our Industries events. We are currently experiencing our busiest year ever on a national and international basis with our reporters, Jacinta Mc Glynn, Declan Mescall and Shane Cullen reporting from every corner of the globe!


Our current on and off line products go from strength to strength and Don will be unveiling new product developments in the future using new technology and partnerships that will further enhance our current 6 major products.


Whilst it was a difficult decision to make, having known Don for most of his time in the Industry and working with him closely over the past 18 months, Travelbiz is in great hands for the future.


I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your fantastic support over the past 18 years and I look forward to continuing to seeing you all and supporting Travelbiz.”
