Tralliance Corporation, the Dot Travel (.travel) registry has appointed a managing director for Europe and the Middle East in a bid to encourage more travel and tourism partners in this region to sign up to the new travel domain. Daniela Wagner, the former global managing director of online travel company, OctopusTravel.com, will oversee the strategic expansion of Dot Travel, which she claimed “represents the future of our industry as we break free from the generic .com world and develop our own dedicated travel and tourism presence on the Internet”. "I look forward to applying my experience in online commerce to this important initiative, which has gained a tremendous amount of traction since its introduction less than a year ago. Both key global industry players and SMEs are now coming to understand that integration of Dot Travel domain names into their strategic marketing plans is key to conducting business online,” she added. Wagner boasts 20 years’ travel and tourism experience; she’s the former vice president of corporate affairs for the World Travel and Tourism Council and she has also served as the executive director of the European Tour Operators Association. Tralliance has also appointed Dr Tanya Abrahamse, the former executive director of the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) as managing director, Africa. For the past year, Tralliance has focused on promoting the Dot Travel to travel and tourism suppliers, but the company has now launched the domain’s vertical search portal, www.search.travel, where consumers can find information about legitimate travel and tourism suppliers. The web site delivers qualified search results from the entire World Wide Web, giving priority to destinations and businesses that have been authenticated by the Dot Travel Registry.
