Introduction

Romania offers significant tourism potential. The country is rich both cultural and historically and has a multitude of authentic and little explored touristic opportunities. The Tourism Industry is young and in full development stage, segmented and requires a strong local partner when doing business in Romania. However the potential is huge offering great locations for MICE Tourism Industry.

Ultramarin has been in business since 2001, active in MICE projects since 2002 and engaged in DMC business providing MICE services since 2010. In 2015 Ultramarin split in 2 branches: Ultravoyage is the name of the Incoming branch, a new fresh company which focusses entirely on MICE and on promoting ROMANIA as a destination, while Ultramarin is the outgoing branch.

Our strategy is to grow the incoming business segment with 1520% yearly. Ultravoyage has a high reputation. We work with over 100 Romanian business partners and over 20 business partners overseas (Europe, Asia and Middle East). We are happy in continuing growing and developing profitable business. Gabriela started the business in 2001 and grew the business from 3 people to 17 people today and a healthy network of collaborators and subcontractors and cumulating over 50 million Euro businesses since firms’ inception. Her experience includes business management, organizing tours, fairs, exhibitions and regional and European tour guides.
