ITB Berlin News spoke to Arie Linsker, CEO and COO at JetaLimo. We asked him about his company and focus at ITB Berlin.
JetaLimo is a fast track and transfers integrator connecting travellers and agencies to its travel suppliers across the globe
What are the main trends you are seeing in terms of buyer demand?
There is no easy way to pre-book a transfer in advance at a remote location. JetaLimo was the first to introduce the real-time, seamless booking of this great airport solution. To date we cover over 275 airports and only a handful of competitors have joined in the auto-provisioning of these solutions.
WE HOPE TO RECRUIT AS MANY AS 75 ADDITIONAL AFFILIATES THIS YEAR
What are you hoping to gain from this year’s ITB Berlin?
Over the last three years of participation at ITB Berlin, JetaLimo has recruited 271 af liates worldwide who are the backbone of our operation. We believe in strong, profitable relationships with our local providers, without compromising on quality and pricing for our clients. We hope to recruit as many as an additional 75 affiliates this year to buy services from the across the globe.
Are you interested in particular travel themes?
There are two travel channels we are interested in this year, glamping and family travel. We’ve seen tremendous amount of growth in these two channels over the past few months.
How important is the speed dating organised at ITB for you?
I strongly believe that the speed dating during ITB is the single most important event of the entire show. It creates the perfect energy for conducting fast pace business and achieving the utmost results in just a few hours.
How important is ITB Berlin for you as an event and why?
We attend other shows around the world, but if we look at the ROI, the value for money at ITB is far superior than that of any other travel show on earth. Everybody comes to Berlin, and we always make a point of being there as well.
