To have the right resources with the needed skills is one of the key success factors in conceptualisation and realisation of tourism projects.
In most of the cases our clients either did not have the right people or did not want to invest in new staff.
This is where ITO makes the difference. We can staff a project or/and deliver a project from concept to implementation.
From the development of innovative strategies and solutions right through to their successful implementation, all of our work and support is based on deep sector insight and expertise.
ITO has a permanent professional staff consisting of specialists out of the tourism industry in a number of fields, including strategic planning, marketing & sales, market research, product development, landscape architecture, human resources, finance, transport, administration & controlling, and management organisation.
Our staff has experience in the whole tourism sector such as hotel, airline, travel agencies, catering, events, trades and affairs, and tour operators. We combine management skills with the know-how of realisation of a different set of tourism projects. Our cross sector experiences e.g. in the retail and finance sector are additional values for our partners. Using them we are able to transfer and adapt best practices.
Our International Partner Network
ITO has established a global network of leading institutions and companies of the tourism industry that helps us to provide our clients unsurpassed value.
Within our international network we have developed strategic alliances with WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council), BTW (Federal Association of the German Tourism Industry), DRV (German Travel Association) as well as several international hotel companies, tour operators, airlines and other partners out of the tourism value chain. These alliances significantly broaden the specialist services that we can bring to our clients worldwide.
