Klook marks growth plan
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.
