ATPI Sports events has a long heritage in sports travel management and has been providing assistance in the planning and managing of national houses since 1997. The company is also the official ticket and travel agent for the Dutch and Portuguese National Olympic Committee’s (NOC’s).
With a dedicated Olympic team based in Rio de Janeiro for the last two years, visitors to the 2016 Olympic Games are guaranteed entrance to the top sporting events whilst taking in Brazil’s culture on a number of tailored excursions.
Michiel Aulbers, group sports strategist, ATPI Sports Events, comments: “We always expected demand for tickets to exceed our supply, but the first wave of tickets proved extremely popular and sold out within two weeks. With travellers looking for a high-end, bespoke travel experience, we have experts on hand to assist when choosing fully vetted accommodation to ensure everything goes smoothly. We pride ourselves on delivering completely hassle-free, specialised experiences and are thrilled to have additional tickets available as the excitement builds ahead of the world’s most anticipated sporting event.”
ATPI Sports Events has researched, visited and contracted at an early stage a host of safe and secure centrally located accommodation choices, in order to avoid an anticipated hotel room shortage. Packages booked through ATPI Sports Events feature a full range of options, from city hotels and apartments to houses on exclusive private gated developments. Sports fans booking through ATPI Sports Events will also have access to private transfers and expert guides for trips to Copacabana beach, cycling tours through Rio and visits to the Amazon rainforest.
Launched earlier this year, ATPI Sports Events is the new specialist brand for clients with operations in the sports market to deliver a whole host of services, including travel logistics.
