Leading travel management and events business, the ATPI Group, has appointed a new Romanian partner, Business Travel Turism, one of Romania’s top corporate travel and events companies. The addition of Business Travel Turism now sees the ATPI Group with a network of wholly owned offices and partners in 42 countries around the world in diverse locations such as Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan, Brazil and Finland.
The appointment marks the ATPI Group’s expansion into central Europe. Bucharest-based Business Travel Turism was recently recognised by the Hotel Tourism Leisure Investment Conference as the best corporate, meetings, incentive travel and events business in Romania.
Graham Ramsey, chief executive officer, ATPI Group said, “We look for regional expertise and excellence in our partners and are very pleased to add Business Travel Turism to our growing network. Expanding our group operation via acquisitions and new partners is a key part of our growth plans. We look forward to the opportunities that this new partnership brings to both businesses.”
Paula Dobrescu, owner and CEO, Business Travel Turism added, ““The central European region is experiencing a fast pace of growth, and our economy is outperforming much of northern and western Europe. Our business has grown significantly in Romania thanks to a developing local market, and we are excited about the potential that our partnership with the global ATPI Group brings as we strengthen our position as the travel management company of choice in central Europe.”
