DAZN goes global with ATPI

ATPI has completed the implementation of a global travel management contract with sports streaming service DAZN.

It is now DAZN’s sole global travel management company (TMC).

ATPI has been servicing DAZN since July 2022, managing all elements of the company’s crew and production travel.

After a successful implementation period, ATPI will now manage travel of DAZN employees and partners to the 15 markets in which the business operates, including the UK, North America and other key countries throughout Europe and Asia.

Founded in the UK in 2015, DAZN provides live and on-demand sports streaming services to users in over 200 countries and territories, specialising in Boxing, MMA, Wrestling, Women’s soccer and Extreme sports.

ATPI said the partnership is significant as it continues to firmly secure its place as a media production expert following its successful bid for the ITV account in May 2021.

It said its expertise in sports and media production travel, moving large groups of people and working with global brands, were key factors which supported the appointment.

Kim Trenter, DAZN Global Travel Manager, said: “Working with the experienced ATPI team has already made such a positive impact for us.

“Their knowledge and proven track record in managing media production travel and previous collaboration with global sports brands makes them the right partner for our growing company.

“The single booking portal is of extreme importance to us. This, combined with their best in market online booking tools and reporting capabilities, have been invaluable to us so far.

“After a successful implementation period, we’re looking forward to seeing how we can drive the  programme forward, to make us fit for the future and continue to grow.”

Katie Skitterall, ATPI Group Commercial Director, added: “Working with DAZN is such an incredible step in expanding our crew and media production travel portfolio.

“I am so proud of the team around me. With the implementation complete, we now walk into business as usual, which for me is where the real fun starts as we collaborate, challenge and support DAZN to transform their programme into one that is yet to be seen in the industry.”
