Traveller Made® Welcomes Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts as a new partner
Traveller Made® announces new partnership with Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts
Traveller Made®, the new European network community of luxury travel designers, has today announced a partnership with the luxury hotel brand, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts. The Group joins a variety of other key travel partners of the network such as Oetker Collection, SBM Monte-Carlo, Orient-Express Hotels Ltd., Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and Raffles Fairmont Hotel International.
“How many hotel brands can sign an advertising campaign with such a beautiful strap line so congruent with their hospitality? ‘To embrace a stranger as one’s own. It is in our nature’. An inconspicuous family spirit pervades the company’s culture, properties and teams that makes the brand a landmark of luxury travel.
Greeting Shangri-La as a partner will benefit all our community on our way to re-think the true meaning of luxury,” says Quentin Desurmont, President, Traveller Made®.
Traveller Made® is intent upon increasing public awareness of the 100 plus luxury travel designers located in Europe who specialize in unique, tailor-made travel experiences for high net worth individuals.
“Traveller Made is the first community of its kind in Europe, and we’re delighted to partner with the best players in this major market to further develop luxury travel,” said Barbara Pang, Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts’ Senior Vice President – Sales and Marketing. “Traveller Made’s networked travel designers are committed to providing clients bespoke experiences. This complements our philosophy of exceeding guest expectations through Shangri-La’s authentic hospitality from the heart.”
