Gina Dunnett is Director, Product Development & Travel Experience at GoBe. com, a subsidiary of Royal Caribbean Cruises. We asked her to tell us about GoBe.com, which launched in March 2017.
We’re bringing ashore all that Royal Caribbean Cruises is known for – great experiences, fantastic global destinations, and a thoughtful selection of “must do” activities to check off everyone’s bucket list. Every day we hand pick tours, shore excursions, tickets to attractions, transfers and more that would allow our travellers to “Experience Everywhere”.
Are you interested in particular travel themes?
At GoBe, we strive to offer a great experience to every type of traveller but particularly Millennials and multi-generation families. With Instagram and Facebook, we have a new generation whose persona is defined by their experiences.
What are you hoping to gain from this year’s ITB Berlin?
Reinforcing our relationships with suppliers is key – especially those who signed on with us when GoBe.com was just a collection of wire frames. Equally as critical is forging new partnerships with tour and attraction providers that may not previously have worked directly with a company like us. How important is the speed dating organised at ITB for you? I consider GoBe’s participation in the speed networking sessions to be essential. The meeting request and scheduling communications that take place between myself and exhibiting companies I may never have been introduced to otherwise are vital to making the show a success.

Why did you decide to join the ITB Berlin Buyers Circle, and what, for you, are the key advantages of being a member?
Last year was the first time we participated in the ITB Berlin Buyers Circle and I could not have been more pleased with how effective the services were in connecting me with potential business partners. Last year, I returned feeling incredibly satisfied with the many new connections I made with companies globally, many of whom are now working with us
