Amadeus host trade and media partners in the Shelbourne Hotel

#Traveltradetogether

#TRAVELTRADETOGETHER

Resilience, Sustainability and more Opportunities.

Travelbiz’s roving reporter, Marian Benton, was delighted to attend lunch in the Shelbourne Hotel hosted by the Amadeus team of Neil Rogan (Head of Global External Communications) from Amadeus’ head office in Madrid, as well as Rob Golledge (Head of Corporate Communications) from their London office and of course, our own Olwen McKinney (Sales Manager Ireland).  Invited guests represented corporate, retail and leisure travel companies, consortia and press.

Amadeus, founded in 1987, employs over 17,000 people in 190 countries worldwide. Revenues in 2021 were €2.67 billion. Primarily seen as a GDS, Amadeus has 40 plus subsidiaries worldwide providing ancillary and complementary travel and tourism services.   Amadeus is a leading innovator in an increasingly complex travel environment.

It is no secret that the pandemic has changed the face of travel. Amadeus believe we now have an opportunity to create a more resilient and sustainable travel industry. Amadeus is working with travel agency and airline customers as well as other industry players to help renew travel.

Rob, Neil and Olwen took the opportunity to reconnect in person with the Irish travel trade and remind us of the many services they provide. Their traveller focus is organised around the travellers’ journey from end-to-end via Altéa, Navitaire, Airport IT, Airline Operations, Travel Distribution, Payments and Hospitality.  Their recent research into searches from Ireland and consumer spending had very encouraging news indeed with results showing that 42% of those surveyed had international travel as a priority in the next 12 months.

Thank you to our wonderful and generous hostess Olwen and to Amadeus for a very enjoyable lunch and an update on the world of Amadeus, the huge investment and exciting developments taking place, all aimed at enhancing the experience for agents and customers alike.
