"We are very proud of our established network and are focused now on our further expansion of creating a larger and stronger distribution channel and this is where TravelgateX will help"
Georgios Siligardakis is the CEO of Welcome Holidays. In this personal interview, he highlights the main internal and external changes of his company after the Covid-19 pandemic. It sums us up that for the travel industry there is definitely an opportunity for creative partnerships and digital access should be seen as a useful function.
Has the crisis motivated Welcome Holidays to make internal or external changes?
Like so many others within the industry, Covid-19 made such an impact to our business that it was vital to make changes both internally and externally, thankfully the majority only being short term. Focusing on 2021 become a much earlier priority than previous seasons, our product department were able to negotiate contracts for the following season and build a strong 2021 portfolio.
Being a digital-first brand although not a new concept, we fully appreciate now is an absolutely critically important one, we are taking additional steps by creating immersive experiences entirely online. Our ‘new normal’ means we follow all obligations and make sure our customers and staff are our number one priority.
