Tourico Holidays Partners with Hilton Worldwide to Honor French Travel Clients.

ORLANDO, Fla. – May 19, 2014 – Tourico Holidays, a global leader in wholesale travel brokerage, today announced that it has partnered with Hilton Worldwide to host the first ever Paris TH Live! – an excursion boat dinner cruise on the Seine River, intended to honor Tourico’s France-based partners. The cruise, taking place on Tuesday, May 27th at 19:30, is one of 20 partner events Tourico will host around the world, as a part of a year-long celebration of its two decades of global partner success.

“France has become one of this year’s most sought after destinations in Europe as we’re already seeing double-digit growth in bookings to this amazing country,” said Uri Argov, CEO of Tourico Holidays. “Many of our top partner hotel brands in France – including Hilton, Best Western and Hyatt – have all seen a significant increase in their average daily rates since the start of the year. We’ve since dedicated additional resources to the region, hiring a number of sales and destination development professionals at our Paris-based headquarters.”

Since the start of the year, Tourico Holidays has reported more than $20 million in French-destination sales, an increase of approximately 43% over the previous year – with the majority of the reservations being made up to 5 weeks in advance.

The Paris TH Live! Event will depart from the Port de la Bourdonnais, at the foot of Eiffel Tower. Executives from Tourico Holidays and top French travel company leaders will hear from Tourico’s co-host, Hilton Worldwide, on topics of mobile technology and trends in upscale hotel brands.

The gathering will provide companies like Les Hotels de Paris, which sold over 21,000 room nights in 2013, and Southern French hotels – like Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Mediterranee, Majestic Barriere, Ellington Hotel Nice and the Vista Palace in Monaco – the opportunity to discuss sales and operation plans moving forward.

New Business Intelligence Software Provides Insight into Travel Destination Growth and Trends

ORLANDO, Fla. – May 12, 2014 – Tourico Holidays, a global leader in wholesale travel brokerage, today announced that it has innovated business intelligence software that can predict the future demand for a variety of travel destinations around the globe. Tourico’s predictive analytic software is engineered to aggregate and process large volumes of travel search and booking data, and provide unique insight into the changing travel landscape – allowing the organization to more effectively manage fluctuating markets.

Using its proprietary business intelligence software, Tourico Holidays is able to preemptively react to future spikes in demand. If demand for a specific city, state, or country is on the rise, Tourico is able to quickly respond by generating contracts with new suppliers – or expanding existing relationships – ensuring it always has the inventory available to meet demand. Since the company buys its inventory in bulk, typically years in advance, it is able to adjust supply as the demand shifts.

“The utilization of innovative technology has always been part of our DNA,” said Asi Ginio, Chief Operating Officer for Tourico Holidays. “Our BI technology not only offers a glimpse into our past operations – providing an important historical context – but it also enables us to effectively predict future fluctuations in key markets – so we can stay in front of them.”

Tourico Holidays offers travel products on a high-volume, wholesale model to clients in 100 countries – including Turkey, U.K., Spain, Argentina, Japan, and Canada, which are chiefly responsible for the recent 114% increase in U.S. destination searches. According to Tourico’s most recent data, there’s evidence of growing demand for travel to destinations like Connecticut, which was the target of 4 million more searches than last year – an increase of 38% – and ran a 20% increase in lodging revenue from 2012 to 2013.

“We have an amazing collection of hotel partners who we can rely on to help us meet the growing demand in markets like Connecticut,” said Ginio. “With direct connects and an industry-best 97% sync rate with top hotel brands – including Hilton, IHG, Hyatt, and Wyndham – we will continue to meet the demand from our growing international client base.”

Tourico Holidays Celebrates Nurses with Announcement of April 2015 “Scrubs Cruise”

Tourico Kicks-Off National Nurses Week with Unique Cruise Created Exclusively for Nurses & Healthcare Professionals.

ORLANDO, Fla. – May 5, 2014 – Tourico Holidays, a global leader in wholesale travel brokerage, today announced that it will host a “Scrubs Cruise” in honor of National Nurses Week (May 6-12) and as a unique way of giving back to the healthcare community that has dedicated their lives to helping others. The cruise, which will set sail in April 2015, is open to all nurses, healthcare professionals, and their families, and will offer training courses onboard.

Nurses, firefighters, doctors and other healthcare professionals will enjoy a 4-night trip to Cozumel, Mexico, aboard the Royal Caribbean Brilliance of the Seas, a 4 star cruise ship packed with features – including a nine-story central atrium, floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, 3 pools, a mini golf course, a Rock-climbing wall, a

Casino Royale®, specialty dining, and 16 bars and lounges – with drinks paid for by Tourico Holidays.

Healthcare professionals will also have the option of attending training sessions – earning continuing education contact hours – while on the ship. Teaching activities will be held throughout the trip, so nurses can learn new skills and collaborate with likeminded professionals in a change of scenery.

“Before I joined Tourico, I was in the higher education industry for almost a decade – promoting continued education for nurse professionals,” said Afa Ismayilova, Director of Cruise Marketing for Tourico Holidays. “Throughout my experience I was amazed how smart, driven, hardworking, selfless, and yet so undervalued, nurses are. Now that I’ve transitioned to Tourico’s cruise department, this is my chance to make another small contribution to the wonderful world of nurses.”

The first annual Scrubs Cruise pushed-off from Orlando, Florida a month ago, on April 4, to the Royal Caribbean islands of CocoCay and Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas. Over a hundred nurses were aboard the newly upgraded Enchantment of the Seas® to enjoy the inaugural voyage.

“We received so much positive feedback about this year’s event that we decided every National Nurse Week should be preceded by a celebratory cruise,” said Ismayilova.
