    Avoya Travel Unveils New Innovation Center to Fuel Future Growth

    Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. – January 22, 2020 – Avoya Travel®, one of the travel industry’s most innovative brands, has opened a new Innovation Center in San Diego County, California, to help drive greater levels of collaboration, innovation and growth for the Avoya platform. The new and inspiring center brings to life Avoya’s mission, vision and values with exciting environmental and design elements aligned to the company’s Avoya 2025 goal of becoming the world’s number one vacation platform.

    The Innovation Center will help Avoya continue to attract and retain top talent by creating meaningful interactions and experiences, and to develop more innovative advancements to Agent Power™, Avoya’s proprietary agent operating system, along with further platform capabilities that will generate even more Shared Success™ across all stakeholders – travelers, supplier partners and Independent Agencies.

    Avoya integrated new video-first technology into the buildout to accelerate collaboration as well as cross-team productivity. Now, in-office personnel can better connect with remote employees, supplier partners and Independent Agencies using video chat and live-stream meetings. The new Innovation Center has integrated seating arrangements that allow employees at all levels increased access to one another with the goal of improving teamwork, communication and collaboration.

    Employees enjoy top-tier amenities including thoughtful individual workspaces, private phone booths, collaborative meeting rooms and gathering areas. A lounge offers comfortable pods and couches to support a variety of staff work styles and functions. The main hub is an atrium café that encourages employee community and wellbeing. Here staff have flexibility, can socialize, listen to music and have access to an arcade, unlimited snack bar and more. The open area can accommodate inclusive company events, meetings and a broad range of functions for all staff and stakeholders. Ergonomic sit-to-stand desks, a new aromatherapy room, game room, gym access and a premium coffee station are also available to facilitate high performance with comfort, convenience and wellness throughout the workday.

    Avoya’s recently refreshed logo and color palette are integrated into purposeful interior design that brings the Avoya brand experience to life. Intentionally playing on the natural light and mountain views, the interior elements create an organic, clean and bright feel to Avoya’s new Innovation Center. A lush living wall will greet visitors, warm wood grains and other features inspired by the earth’s topography, maps and travel give natural energy to the workplace.

    Avoya will host a Grand Opening on January 23, 2020, and welcome VIP stakeholders, including Independent Agency owners and supplier partners to tour the new Innovation Center and celebrate the successes of 2019 and a very exciting 2020 and beyond. During the opening celebration Avoya will highlight Phase One accomplishments of Avoya 2025, the company’s aggressive five phase growth plan to becoming the number one vacation platform, and will preview some of the innovative Phase Two initiatives.

    “We are thrilled to open our new Innovation Center where our staff and key stakeholders can inspire and invent together in an environment thoughtfully designed to embody Avoya Travel’s core values and our mission of enriching lives through inspiring travel experiences as the number one vacation platform,” said Jeff Anderson, Co-President of Avoya Travel. “We look forward to showcasing the new center at our Grand Opening event and celebrating what Avoya Travel, our employee family, supplier partners and Independent Agencies have already accomplished together with our innovative plans for the future of vacation travel planning.”

    The new Innovation Center is in San Marcos, California, a rapidly developing community with many dining and entertainment options nearby and easy access to public rail transportation.
