What do you do?

What are the benefits to travellers and organisations with travellers?  

Direct supplier to buyer connections ensure that products can be tailored to each traveller context instead of generic offerings.

What are your plans for future growth?  

Once we have successfully launched our MVP pilots, we will use that learning to accelerate the network effect made possible by Winding Tree's open source travel marketplace.
