TTG Travel Hall of Fame 2015 Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific

Sabre Travel Network Asia Pacific

What factors have enabled your company to remain a top performer in your sector, and top of mind among your customers, all these years?

At Sabre, we are passionate about travel innovation, measuring our own success by the extent to which our technologies help our customers compete and grow.

The thousands of travel agencies and suppliers we support in this region have continually evolved, while expanding into new markets and we are delighted to have played an enabling role.

The differentiating factor is our deep market knowledge, derived from the strength of our relationships within Asia-Pacific’s diverse travel community. It has helped us become the region’s largest B2B channel and now part of the leading technology provider to the global travel industry.

We also credit our success to the company’s commitment to investing in industry-leading solutions.

What is the one most important business decision you have made this year?

Without question, it relates to the acquisition of Abacus International which closed on July 1 this year. We are committing to a new vision for the business in Asia-Pacific.

We are just beginning to share the benefits of the acquisition with our local customers and partners. They will see much more of what it means to be part of Sabre through next year and beyond.

We are connecting new communities in the travel industry and are very excited about the potential for fresh innovation and accelerated growth.
