Updates from Richard Krieger, President of the IsramWorld Portfolio of Brands

A few years ago we took on the challenge of reinventing one of the world's leading tour companies. No easy task. Our goal was to build upon the foundation of nearly 50 years of industry leadership and craft a modern company offering an array of dynamic travel experiences.

To the credit of the team here at The Isramworld Portfolio of Brands, we're succeeding. Shifting our focus from mostly one destination to the global market we've opened offices in London and Costa Rica, expanded our office in Hungary and are soon to open our first office in South America in Peru.

We've moved away from bus tours to a philosophy that will better serve your well-traveled clients: "Experiences Not Souvenirs." We've launched new products around the globe. We've deconstructed and rebuilt what it means to visit Israel - with Belder-Gray Voluntourism Experiences. And we've crafted small luxury group tours to dozens of destinations, with never more than 16 travelers on any departure.

In the coming months there'll be more advances at The Isramworld Portfolio of Brands. Each step we undertake, each improvement, is done with one goal in mind: to continue to be one of America's most creative and dynamic travel providers. After all, Benjamin Franklin said it best "If you're finished changing, you're finished."

Thank you for your continued support and friendship. My team and I look forward to seeing many of you at upcoming events, including IMEX America, Latin America Travel Mart, WTM London and ILTM Cannes.
