A new travel group specialising in travel for celebrations has been created by UK-based Perfect Weddings Abroad’s US parent.


Celebration Travel Group will be headed up by industry veteran Richard Calvert (pictured) to focus on travel for family occasions, weddings, birthdays and anniversaries and all-inclusive trips.


The move follows investment in Kentucky-based All Inclusive Outlet by the US majority owner of Perfect Weddings Abroad, DestinationWeddings.com.


The newly formed CTG is planning on further growth by acquisition to add to its portfolio of brands that include PerfectBeachWeddings.com, LuxuriousDestinationWeddings.com, GayDestinationWeddings.com, PerfectHoneymoonsAbroad.co.uk and PerfectGayHoneymoons.co.uk.


Calvert said: “Following the recent investment in AllInclusiveOutlet.com and the continued growth of The Destination Weddings Travel Group, it made perfect sense for the investors to create an over arching travel organization to maximize synergies, leverage the combined strength and offer customers a wider portfolio of celebratory vacation choices.”


All Inclusive Outlet will continue to be led by President, Tom Carr and in the UK by Managing Director, Helen Doyle, co-founder of Perfect Weddings Abroad.


Calvert added: “The objective is to drive further organic growth in all the companies and cross pollinate between the brands to create lifetime customers through our exemplary customer service.”


“I am delighted about the recent investment in All Inclusive Outlet as well as its integration into the Celebration Travel Group,” said  Carr.


 “This will accelerate our growth while also broadening our appeal to a wider audience, who will no doubt appreciate the great value of our all-inclusive vacation celebrations.”
