QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Queenstown adventure startup exploreGO defies the odds, confirming their first million dollar sale in a single booking. Offering iconic adventures in over 21 countries, they had to hibernate during the global lockdowns, however, the Queenstown startup is coming out of this period strong and is tapping into the $852 billion USD global adventure travel industry that is tipped to exceed annual revenue of $2 trillion in the next 5 years.
Originally launching an online marketplace for adventure travel, the team have now expanded their offering to include bespoke bucket-list concierge adventures for high-net-worth travellers and groups. In late 2022 the company was excited to confirm their first $1M booking, really building momentum in this growing and niche space. This service is perfect for travellers that are looking for a more personalised travel experience, built by industry-leading adventure experts that promise a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Aspiring to be the world's leading adventure travel network and led by a team of global adventurers, exploreGO was founded with the purpose of connecting travellers with the most incredible adventure experiences around the globe. Committed to ‘Giving Back With Every Adventure', exploreGO reinvests 10% of all booking fees to support, protect or enhance local communities and the natural environment.
Recently graduating from the US based NewChip accelerator program, the team are fully focussed on scaling the business and securing early investment to take on this exciting and growing market opportunity. With momentum growing and travel resuming to pre-pandemic levels, the future looks bright for this well-positioned local startup that has discovered a unique global niche supporting people to achieve their dream goals and bucket-list adventures.
