Sabre Travel Network(R), the world’s leading provider of high-performance solutions for the travel industry, announced a year-long celebration of the company’s 25th year of operations in Latin America and the Caribbean. Throughout the course of 2010, Sabre will host a series of customer and employee events across the region. The events will focus on recognizing long term client success, the evolution of travel technology in the region, and the growing contribution of Sabre employees in their respective communities.
Sabre took its first steps into the region in 1985; today, Sabre has more than 1,520 employees across the region, including:
-offices in 12 countries supporting customers in more than 42 countries throughout the region;
-a world-class development center in Buenos Aires; and

The company has earned acclaim in multiple countries in the region as one of ‘the best places to work’, as recognized by prestigious local publications.
Sabre is the worldwide leader and the leading global distribution system provider in Latin America and the Caribbean, serving agency and corporate customers across the region, efficiently powering reservations and enabling agencies to better serve millions of travellers annually.
Dream Trip Contest for a Lucky Travel Agent and a Guest
To commemorate this milestone year, Sabre will launch a unique “Dream Trip” contest for Sabre connected agents in Latin America. The winning agent will have the opportunity to travel to an exciting destination, with Sabre providing air travel and hotel accommodations. Sabre will communicate more information about the Dream Trip contest later this month.
Sabre is also scheduling customer and employee events across the region that will visibly highlight the success of Sabre clients over the past 25 years, and Sabre’s role in helping corporations and agencies in Latin America and the Caribbean to make money, save money and deliver superior customer service.
Making an Impact in Local Communities
Sabre employees have a contagious spirit and a never-ending passion for their local communities. Across the region, team members volunteer year-round and participate in Sabre’s global volunteer program, called “Give Time Together.” Sabre’s Latin America employees were the first to participate in a payroll deduction giving program, called “Give Together,” enabling long-term partnerships with charities in their cities. In 2009, Sabre staged 31 fund-raising events in the region.
“Sabre shares with our customers a truly compelling tale of success over the past 25 years in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Jay Jones, senior vice president of the Americas. “The region has a unique mix of talented people who love the travel industry, and are also committed to deploying the best travel solutions to help corporations, travel management agencies, and leisure agencies best serve travelers.
