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. »
