Topaz Services hosts the Eurasian Delegation in its Oakland, California offices to promote newly emerging business trade.
Topaz Services (Topaz) was invited by the US Department of Commerce and International Trade Administration to host a round table meeting with hotel owners, managers and industry professionals from Eurasia. The visitors were participants in the Special American Business Internship Training (SABIT) Group Program on hotel management. The delegation’s visit to the U.S started out in Washington, D.C. on May 13, 2006. Program topics were designed to aid the delegation of representatives in the US travel industry’s business management models and to improve commercial opportunities within the international tourism industry.
An impressive representation from fledgling democratic countries at the SABIT training included delegates representing hotel properties in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Delegates, accompanied by their guide and translators visited the corporate headquarters of Topaz Services in Oakland, California to explore topics such as new Web Portal technology, development of refined hotel searches by customers, and Voice Center reservation processing, all topics that Topaz is well known for within the travel industry.
As a result of the SABIT Program and Topaz’s participation, the delegates took home practical information needed to improve the hospitality and tourism industry in their countries..
