New ownership strengthens Ticket Biz´s presence and future growth in the Nordic region

Ticket Biz is a strong regional player in the Nordic markets, with approximately 150 employees managing corporate travel and meetings & events, a diverse portfolio of clients and annual sales of just under €180 million. The acquisition by a strong global corporate travel company like BCD Travel, will allow Ticket Biz to further strengthen its local presence through direct access to global products, efficient operations and deep travel industry experience.

“We are very excited by the opportunities that BCD Travel creates for Ticket Biz to grow even stronger in the Nordic region, and look forward to working together,” said Per G. Braathen, owner of Braganza. “This move will allow Ticket Biz to continue to thrive, producing value for our customers, staff and shareholders.”

The acquisition of Ticket Biz strengthens BCD Travel’s position in the Swedish and Norwegian markets, creating the base for strong growth within the Nordic region.

“With their solid reputation and focus on mid-market corporate customers, Ticket Biz complements our culture and growth goals very well,” said Stewart Harvey, BCD Travel’s president of Europe, Middle East and Africa. “This acquisition reflects our ongoing pursuit of growth opportunities that benefit our clients by strengthening our position as a leader in corporate travel.”

Ticket Biz will continue operating under their brand as a business unit of BCD Travel.
