[HD video below] On Monday, at the World Travel Market 2011 (WTM)
taking place 7-10 November at Excel in London, ASIA Travel
Tips.com had the opportunity to sit with Mr. Danny Talbot,
Managing Director of Thomas Cook Sport, and ask him about the
company and about Sports Tourism in general.
In the HD video interview you will learn how the
company works, where the idea for the company came from, which
markets they are targeting, whether it is going more for FITs with
direct bookings, or if it is still working with, and encouraging
bookings through travel agents.
We also ask whether Thomas Cook Sport will be
exhibiting at any trade shows in Asia Pacific next year, whether
customers can book just tickets, and whether the hotels that it
packages with the tickets are 4 and 5-star or whether there are
cheaper options available to customers as well.
And it is not all about inbound sports tourism
to the UK. Asia is home to some of the most exciting sporting
events in the world, such as the
Hong Kong Rugby Sevens and others, so we ask how Thomas Cook
Sport is trying to increase the outbound segment of its business
and which sporting events it is looking at, plus much, much more.
