Wendy Wu smashes all time revenue and passenger record!

A big congrats to Wendy Wu Tours this morning! The team have absolutely smashed their 24-year record in terms of revenue, profit and passenger numbers.

Since it’s humble beginnings in 1994 when Wendy Wu took her first group to China, the company has opened offices London, Auckland, Shanghai and Xian.

The Australian office has seen huge growth in 2018, particularly for China at 18 per cent, and Japan at 56 per cent YOY.

And now it has surpassed it’s all-time record for the most revenue in a calendar year, making 2018 the most successful year in the history of Wendy Wu Tours Australia.

We’re pretty jealous of their doughnut wall, all we get when we break records in our office is a cup of tea and a stern talking to.

Granted, our record-breaking is normally confined to seeing how many chips we can fit in our mouth at once.

“This result is a testament to the fantastic work of our Australian team to produce, manage and drive the first two quarterly campaigns in 2018, Fly Free and Mega Asia Sale,” Group CEO Joe Karbo said.

“Over the next few weeks we’ll start shifting gear to the last two quarterly campaigns, which will drive departures for 2019.”

Plus a whopping seven members of their team have been shortlisted in the Women in Travel Awards, and Women in Travel Power List. Which we think is worth celebrating too!
