10.18am 24th May 2023 - Corporate

Seventy2 Golf has been appointed as the Global Sales Agency for Desert Gate, the premier Destination Management Company in the Middle East & Indian Ocean.

Desert Gate has been providing award-winning destination management services for its growing portfolio of tour operator clients for close to 20 years. With the newest additions of Qatar and Mauritius to their featured destinations, Desert Gate has firmly established itself as one of the market leading premium DMC’s, with clear ambitions of future progression. Desert Gate’s extensive knowledge within multiple destinations stems from the teams 75 years combined industry experience. Furthermore, the dedicated golf, leisure, and luxury departments Desert Gate possesses allow for a seamless booking process for every one of its clients.

Giles Greenwood, Managing Director of Seventy2 Golf, remarked: “We are delighted to be working alongside Desert Gate as we have always been big supporters of the tremendous service Andrea, and the team at DG have been able to offer their clients. Their continued expansion into multiple destinations allows tour operators to appoint one DMC for entire regions rather than individual destinations. Given our presence within the Middle East, it’s an obvious fit to provide tour operators with an option to book through one company.”

Andrea Faldella, Director of the Desert Gate Golf Department, added: “This new partnership with Seventy2 Golf, allows us to raise awareness of our new destinations whilst giving us the opportunity to leverage their buyer network. Our continued growth into world-renowned golf destinations ensures we’re constantly evolving and providing our clients with new services, extensive experience, and as always fantastic service. We’re excited to explore where this partnership takes us and look forward to expanding our network of clients.”

Based out of the Dubai Head Office, and with individual offices in each destination, Desert Gate’s vast team of multi-lingual industry professionals are readily available to facilitate any request from their tour operator partners. Embracing technology to enhance the consumer experience has always formed an integral part of the Desert Gate ethos, but not without recognising the need for a personalised human service.

Desert Gate has direct relationships with every golf course in their represented destinations, reducing the contractual process for all their tour operator clients. Similarly, their long-standing relationships with hoteliers ensure the best rates are always negotiated and savings passed on to the end consumer. Desert Gate boasts an extensive fleet of vehicles, ranging from regular saloon cars to premium large-scale alternatives, all of which are less than 3 years old, fully insured and always in excellent condition.

Seventy2 Golf will be utilising the Desert Gate services to provide a one-stop shop for tour operators looking for a reputable, award-winning DMC. Building on Desert Gate’s status within the Middle East & Indian Ocean, Seventy2 Golf will generate sales revenue via international golf & leisure travel companies and crucially opening new and international sales channels.
