Discova has formed a partnership with Horus Development & Consulting that will utilise the latter’s in-depth knowledge of the South-east Asian travel markets to lead B2B promotions in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
Horus will develop education, training and events aimed at increasing market knowledge of Discova in the region. Both companies have also expressed commitment to jointly promote sustainable and responsible travel.
Benoit Badufle, managing director of Horus Development & Consulting, said: “The plea for a more sustainable tourism industry has become greater than ever, and it is a core value of our company to leave a positive impact in travel.
“Likewise, Discova focuses on sustainable and community development. With 95 per cent of its employees based locally, it drives direct benefits into the local communities and, retrospectively, benefits Discova with unrivalled grassroots knowledge and experience.
“We are honoured to join Discova in driving positive change and rethinking growth in the travel industry.”
Discova’s sales & marketing director Andrew Turner shares Badufle’s positive outlook. He said: “We regard Asia as a key source market opportunity with increasing outbound regional travel demand. Growth in these markets is a key element in both our short- and long-term goals. This exciting partnership with Horus will enable us to capitalise on their expansive knowledge and experience, and we look forward to extending our sustainably focused services to South-east Asian markets.”
