GPN sets Linea Azzurra apart. Being a member of GPN has brought us numerous benefits over the years, from the ease of being able to arrange transport for our clients abroad hassle-free and knowing that they are well taken care of to the trust amongst members, which allows us to openly discuss the challenges and opportunities we may face. I myself have greatly benefited from this openness and it has helped me take chances I might not otherwise have felt comfortable taking. When engaging with clients, both new and current, we always emphasise our membership of GPN as it distinguishes us from our competition. GPN has strict admission criteria and as such, I consider it a stamp of approval to have been selected as the Italian member. With us, and GPN, our clients can rest assured that quality and safety are of the highest priority.
“We joined GPN at its second General Meeting in November 2006 and I’m so pleased we did! GPN is a fantastic solution for our customers as we can arrange high quality, CEO reliable transportation service in many places around the world. The membership has introduced new clients and opportunities to us that we might not have had otherwise. The two annual meetings with our members and partners build unique relationships among us. After each meeting, I always return home with new ideas and initiatives I want to implement.”
“To me, GPN means “collective innovation;” we come together to share our experiences and to use our past to build our future. By thinking about the future of our market collectively, we can pool our skills and ideas and create new models and new opportunities, and thus keep our business going for as long as possible. GPN also provides us with a unique insight into what goes on beyond the French borders. I particularly value the bi-annual general meetings where we come together to learn from one another. It creates a very strong relationship between each member because it pushes us to keep an open mind, which is very important in the tourism industry.”
“Our membership of the GPN began a number of years with a meeting at WTM. I was very impressed with the professionalism and variety of membership in the organisation and the network that has increased to nearly every continent on the planet! It is a family of like-minded coach company owners who all believe in delivering the best quality service to our customers. I have learnt so much from the different people who I call friends now all over the world. From a business perspective we have got major new clients through the GPN and it symbolises a quality guarantee that I am proud to show to my clients”
“As Norway’s representative in GPN since 2017, Unibuss Tur has taken part in many of the networks activities: increased sales and insight through the CRM system, participation in international fairs, annual sales meetings, regional meetings and much more. Our membership has given us greater access to the international marked and most of all a forum to share know how.”
“GPN has made it possible for several companies from all over the world to get together in order to create a single Network where both the Transport Companies and the passengers benefit from this collaboration. Considering that Malta is the smallest GPN Country Member, we do not have as much exposure as other bigger transport companies in Europe and the world. Thanks to GPN, we have learned from the experiences that these members have. We have also benefited from exchanging strategies, policies and important contacts. Another important element is that we have also had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with several GPN Partners. Another important matter is that GPN has given us and other members the opportunity to attend several Fairs such as Busworld, WTM and IBTM. As a member of the GPN our company has had much more exposure worldwide.”
