Corporate travel network, CT Partners, has set a target to deliver combined turnover of $1.5 billion within two years.
The group reached $1b this year despite tough trading conditions with further growth planned.
CT Partners chairman, Grant Wilson, said the aim was to build on the result.
“We set a goal last year to reach $1b turnover which we have now delivered,” he said at the buying group’s conference in Bangkok. “The corporate travel market continues to be a tough market so it was pleasing to see our members win business through the year and achieve this great result for the group.
“Our next goal is $1.5 billion turnover in the next two years and we are confident of achieving this.”
He said the group was also on the lookout for new members. Key benefits include “100% transparency” while all overrides are returned to members, Grant added.
At the conference, CT Partners confirmed the addition of new member, The Appointment Group, while former Jetset Travelworld manager Sue Graham was formally unveiled as its general manager of supplier partnerships.
