Sonia Orrego has been appointed special groups manager for Wendy Wu Tours’ new special groups department, which will provide support for the increasing requests for customised private group tours of 10 or more people on itineraries throughout Asia. She brings over ten years’ experience developing and managing groups, the MICE market, major events and occasions, sports group travel and private touring to the role.
“The specialist department will assist agents and clients requiring a focus on bespoke touring arrangements for dedicated groups.
