Flexi Reps, the new rep agency founded by Craig Davidson in August 2020 has signed a deal to be the UK sales partner for Obeo Travel.
Obeo is a specialist Destination Management company featuring Iceland & Namibia. Obeo have tasked the Flexi team with finding new trade partners in the UK as well as representing them at UK trade shows, travel events and travel agent training.
Commenting on their first partnership Flexi Reps MD Craig Davidson said: “Our services were initially set up to provide reps on the ground for established businesses in this market, we of course have the connections in trade distribution to help bring new products to market.” Craig continued to hint that further relationships were on the card by adding we have spoken to a lot of suppliers that love our concept, we hope to have lots more positive news int eh coming weeks.”
Obeo, who have been working on a similar partnership with Alan Sparling and his team at ASM Ireland, have had great success in the Irish Market and Obeo hope to replicate that in the UK in partnership with Flexi Reps.
Rannveig Snorradóttir, Managing Director of Obeo offered her view on the new partnership and why they chose Flexi Reps: “Craig has a great little black book of contacts and the team at Flexi have a large network of talented reps to tap into in the regions, when the time is right, we can utilise them for agent activity. We look forward to forging partnerships with UK tour operators and retailers and we are delighted Craig will be managing this on our behalf. We are immensely proud of our brand and what we can offer in our destinations, where it’s all about high quality service, flexibility and competitive pricing.”
