Big in North America and setting sights down under, Ensemble Travel Group finally makes its mark across the ditch with the first NZ alliance in place.
The group has formed a partnership effective 1 February with Travel Managers Group New Zealand (a different entity to Travel Managers Australia, which Ensemble announced as a partner with in October) is expected to unlock “exclusive travel benefits, savings and luxury products” for members.
In a market first, Travel Managers Group (TMG) New Zealand including Executive Travel Limited, HRG NZ and all their affiliate groups will be part of the partnership.
“This partnership unlocks the significant market advantage of Ensemble’s relationships with industry leading suppliers, as well as market-leading technology, marketing and new luxury products exclusive to the New Zealand market for the Travel Managers Group of travel professionals,” Dave Wallace, Managing Director, Travel Managers Group said.
“Given the rate of change and evolution in the travel industry, keeping pace with global offerings is fundamental to meeting client needs and having access to the Ensemble Travel Group portal of benefits and relationships reinforces our commitment to being market leaders.”
Ensemble is a leading global member-owned international network of approximately 850 selected top-tier travel agencies.
“This ground-breaking partnership is an exciting and important milestone for our growing Ensemble network in Asia Pacific as well as for TMG New Zealand,” Ensemble Senior Vice President and General Manager, Trish Shepherd said.
