PATA Travel Mart debut a huge success for lowcostbeds

Independent global bed bank, lowcostbeds, will focus on forging more direct contracts with hotel partners across the Asia Pacific region following its debut at this month’s PATA Travel Mart in Cambodia.

The Australian Director of lowcostbeds, Sophie Cann, who travelled to Phnom Penh for Asia Pacific’s biggest travel trade show from September 17-19, said the group’s first appearance at PATA Travel Mart was a huge success, with lucrative meetings held with buyers from travel agencies, tour operators and B2B accommodation specialists from India, Thailand, Singapore, China, Japan, Hong Kong, Myanmar, Vietnam and Australia.
Exhibiting at PATA Travel Mart for the first time provided the ideal opportunity for us to showcase our 200,000-plus properties and to demonstrate our powerful lowcostbeds technology platform,” Ms Cann said.
Buyers from a range of companies were impressed by our vast product range of global hotels and understood how our solution could add value to their business. We will now ramp up our efforts on developing more directly contracted hotel product across Asia Pacific to support our growth in the region.
Ms Cann was joined at the lowcostbeds booth at PATA Travel Mart by lowcostbeds’ Bangkok-based Trade XML Account Manager APAC, Thamarong Wanarithikul and Regional Business Development Manager APAC, Terry Wong.
Rated among the world’s top ten independent bed banks, lowcostbeds expanded into the Asia Pacific region for the first time in 2013, opening offices in Bangkok and Sydney.
Marking its 10th birthday this year, the global lowcosttravelgroup now boasts 450 staff in ten offices worldwide offering its clients 24/7 support, with its growing hotel inventory live in 47 countries and attracting 2.5 million customers annually. The global lowcosttravelgroup is targeting an annual turnover of over GBP£1 billion in the next two years.
