Adelman Acquires Chamber Discoveries
(Milwaukee, WI, November 5, 2013) – Adelman Travel has acquired Chamber Discoveries, a leading provider of travel for chambers of commerce in the U.S. The purchase of Chamber Discoveries will allow Adelman Travel to further expand their offerings to leisure travel consumers.
Chamber Discoveries, based in Fresno, California, packages customized international tours that are then made available to members of U.S- based chambers of commerce. These private tours also contain business components, industry workshops, or forums for the exchange of ideas.
“There are definite synergies between Adelman Vacations and Chamber Discoveries,” said Bob Chaiken, CEO of Adelman Travel. “We have travel consultants in our Adelman Vacations offices in the Midwest who are creating high-end international group tours and customized packages for individuals. These two divisions can support each other while allowing us to grow both businesses.”
“At Chamber Discoveries we have always prided ourselves on our expertise and our ability to provide unique travel programs to chambers of commerce members,” said Craig Howard, President and CEO of Chamber Discoveries. “Adding the strength and reputation of Adelman Travel to our experience in this market will allow us to develop and significantly expand the services we can offer.”
Chamber Discoveries was represented in this transaction by Alpharetta, Georgia-based Innovative Travel Acquisitions, Inc.
