The addition of Apex Travel follows other recent APAC acquisitions, including Axis Events and CCM Travel Group Australia last year and TAG entering the NZ market with the strategic purchase of Red Hot Travel & Events and Sound Travel.

Founded by Niall McNamara and Luke Hardaker, Apex Travel brings a wealth of experience to TAG with 18 years in the industry.

The two companies have collaborated for several years and the move signals an evolution for TAG’s global corporate and private travel divisions and a seamless transition for Apex Travel and its clients.
