Travelport Opinions triples membership
Travelport has announced that its professional networking site for travel agents, www.travelportopinions.com, has tripled its global membership. The tool, which connects members of the travel industry, saw a total of 7,300 members and over 9,000 questions and answers by the end of 2010, representing a user increase of 200%.
Countries with a notable rise in users and activity included the UK, France, Belgium, Switzerland, the UAE, South Africa and Australia. Statistically every hour saw at least two new registrations, one review added and 15 messages shared around the world while users spent on average 15% longer on the site.
Last year, 75 new features and enhancements were added including a ‘people you may know’ application, ‘latest activities of your contacts’, an improved email alert system and an enhanced forum layout. The latest feature to kick-off 2011 has been the introduction of ‘groups’ - a means to carve niche communities based on shared interests and location within the site.
