Dallas, TX (PRWEB) August 29, 2008 -
WorldVentures announces their 85th DreamTrip vacation for 2008, exceeding their original goal of 50 DreamTrip vacations for this year. This surpasses a revised first quarter forecast of 70 DreamTrips for 2008 which was adjusted due to the tremendous growth in membership. WorldVentures has taken the bulk-buying concept most commonly seen in warehouse clubs such as Sam's or Costco and applied it to travel. For a nominal initial cost, and a small monthly fee, DreamTrips Members are given access to a calendar of pre-packaged vacations at wholesale pricing.
DreamTrips Director, Grant Merz says, "The exponential growth of WorldVentures has surpassed everyone's expectations. Each time we've forecasted a specific number of trips, we've always exceeded our goals." In its first year, the company promised to offer 12 DreamTrips and delivered 15. In 2007, the estimated 24 DreamTrips ultimately became 37. This year's offering marks a 130% increase over 2007. "We look forward to continuing this extraordinary growth cycle," says Merz.
Reaching another major milestone, WorldVentures recently launched a February 2009 DreamTrip which marks the first charter of a full airplane. Departing Minneapolis, MN, travelers will board the aircraft bound for eight days and seven nights at the Riu Puerto Vallarta Hotel and Resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. As the company continues to expand, the number of DreamTrips available continues to expand, as well as the size and duration of the trips.
New to the WorldVentures team as of April, 2008, 30-year travel veteran and Chief Executive Officer, Mike Conway adds, "We are on our way to becoming a household name in Travel. There is a massive demand for travel in this country and we provide a fantastic solution for people from all walks of life."
Chief Marketing Officer, Dan Stammen adds, "With the economy in a state of flux, our product offering is perfectly positioned to meet consumers' needs. Everyone still wants to take their family vacations; they're just looking to stretch their dollars a little further. As our membership base expands, so does our trip offering. Our DreamTrips Membership actually increases in value every year."
