The ALon Story
SHARING & CARING
Alon Tourism Solutions was founded in 2000 to help travel businesses address a significant knowledge gap in the tourism industry: How to consistently and profitably work with the international travel trade/reseller market. Bringing deep knowledge of the travel market and relationship building to destinations and suppliers, Alon forges connections and educates clients on how to present their products to the travel trade for optimal ROI and adoption.
Pre-pandemic almost 80 million international tourists came to the United State annually. Bringing together dynamic destinations, exciting attractions/events, and travel buyers in search of meaningful experiences for their clients, Alon delivers bottom-line benefits, sustained sales and lasting relationships to the global marketplace.
