Friday, February 03, 2017 11:20 AM
Long-time exhibitor Open Destinations will be back at Travel Technology Europe this year with more technology innovation for tour operators, wholesalers and DMC’s.  

The senior management team will be hitting the main stage once again, participating in several of the interactive conference sessions which showcase the latest in technology.
• Phil Napleton, Senior VP of Products & Professional Services, will be presenting at the ‘Booking futures’ session, which will look at the latest advancements in booking technology and reservation systems.

• Senior VP of Technology Brian Mebourne will participate in the speaker panel ‘Using the cloud in travel’, which will discuss how to build cost-effective architecture in the cloud.

• CEO Kevin O’Sullivan will be joining the ETOA session ‘You come to me – where next for personalised content?’ This panel of travel businesses and technology providers will discuss best practices and future trends in personalisation.

The Open Destinations team will also be on hand at Stand T4 to showcase the latest updates to their software, which includes: 

New Package Builder module supporting multi-channelled pricing and graphical creation
Intelligent yield tools for group tour operators supporting product design, selling decisions, sophisticated price analysis and yield management.
Continually growing range of integrations including SiteMinder, RateTiger, Restel (Hotusa), Tourico and DerbySoft.

Open Destinations has seen remarkable growth in their business during 2015 and 2016, which resulted in the company being featured in the Sunday Times SME Export Track 100.  

CEO Kevin O’Sullivan credits their growth to the diverse customer base, which now stretches across six continents. New clients include Australian rail operator Great Southern Rail, education-focused Road Scholar in the US and Destination Asia, a prominent DMC group in Southeast Asia. Open Destinations has also expanded their relationship with key clients such as Belmond and Miki Travel. Growth has also come from their new SaaS product Travel Builder, which was launched last year at TTE and designed for smaller, niche tour operators. 

‘Tour operators have extremely complex needs in their technology,’ says O’Sullivan. ‘Their business requires so much more than just a tool to facilitate e-commerce. They need a sophisticated, flexible platform, no matter what size of their business. Open Destinations provides them with a set of tools to manage their product and their operations, so that they remain competitive in the marketplace.‘
