TRAVEL ac­tiv­i­ties and ser­vices book­ing plat­form Klook Aus­tralia cel­e­brated its suc­cess­ful first year in Aus­tralia at the WeWork of­fice space in Syd­ney this week.

The event was hosted by the com­pany’s Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer Eric Gnock Fah, who told staff and at­ten­dees that Klook con­tin­ued to show strong growth signs de­spite fac­ing chal­lenges when the business was es­tab­lished.

“When we started the business five years ago, we faced a ma­jor road­block due to the frag­men­ta­tion of in-des­ti­na­tion travel ser­vices, we’ve not only over­come the chal­lenge but also trans­formed the sec­tor in the process,” he said.

Fah added that the plat­form was on the cusp of a ma­jor ex­pan­sion pe­riod, re­veal­ing plans to ex­pand its cur­rent work­force from 1,500 to over 2,500 in over 30 of­fices by the end of 2020, as well as grow its foot­print world­wide by deep­en­ing its roots in the Asi­a­Pa­cific and Euro­pean mar­kets.

Klook cur­rently of­fers over 100,000 travel ac­tiv­i­ties in more than 350 des­ti­na­tions and has be­come the most-searched travel ac­tiv­i­ties com­pany on Google glob­ally since Oct 2018.
