Chic Outlet Shopping has announced the launch of a new dedicated "Travel Industry" section on its recently launched website, www.ChicOutletShopping.com.
The “Travel Industry” section of the new website includes a “News and Views” area featuring travel trade videos, the latest news on trade fairs, new partnerships and products, as well as an industry toolkit with exclusive materials, which can be downloaded by registered users to help promote the Collection of Chic Outlet Shopping Villages. "Travel Trade" partners have access to a travel trade area outlining the many benefits available, including net rates on products such as the Shopping Express services and tourism packages allowing the opportunity to earn significant commissions on sales.
According to Ian Staziker, head of tourism of Chic Outlet Shopping, the new initiative is a demonstration of the company’s commitment as a business to promote and develop sustainable shopping tourism across Europe. It is eyeing China as a market soon.
The website is also home to the "Chic Travel Portal", where travel agents and tour operators can create travel itineraries for their clients, utilizing the VIP Shopping Packages or creating custom packages incorporating the full range of Chic Outlet Shopping luxury guest services, including personal stylists, a chauffeur service and the Shopping Express luxury coaches. Additional products will launch throughout 2013, including hotels, regional attractions, gift cards, car hire and rail services.
