Liberty International Tourism Group establishes presence in Australia and New Zealand
February 19, 2019

Liberty International Tourism Group, the world’s largest independent destination management company, has announced its expansion into Australia and New Zealand, opening offices in Sydney, Perth and Auckland.

Advising that he sees an increasing demand for on the ground services, Mario Enzesberger, President and Chief of Liberty International Tourism Group, stated “it was simply a matter of time (for us to open in Australasia).

“Australia and New Zealand have both seen business from Liberty over the years, but there is a such a strong demand for tourism that we had no option.

“Expanding to these new locations will enable us to provide on-ground services, to better co-ordinate and cater for groups travelling to both of these sought-after destinations.”

Eugene De Villiers (pictured), who will head the expansion, added “both sides of the Tasman deserve global recognition as travel and incentive destinations, and I look forward to launching the integrity and reliability of Liberty’s services here.”

With the launch into Australia and New Zealand, Liberty International Tourism Group now has offices in over 80 countries worldwide.
