Travel management company Reed & Mackay is expanding its presence in the Middle East by opening a new office in Abu Dhabi.

The London-based company, which was acquired by fast-growing TripActions in 2021, has operated an office in nearby Dubai since 2016 but is adding a new location in the United Arab Emirates’ capital city to “meet client demand” in the region.

The move follows the announcement last month that Reed & Mackay was buying Spain-based Atlanta Events & Corporate Travel Consultants.

Fred Stratford, group CEO at Reed & Mackay, said: “We are seeing real momentum in the Middle East as Covid-19 restrictions relax and demand continues to grow. 

“Our team in Dubai has done an excellent job nurturing our growing client base in the region and we are thrilled to be able to expand that service through our new Abu Dhabi office.” 

Reed & Mackay’s office in Abu Dhabi is located in Masdar City, a new low-carbon development powered entirely by solar and other renewable energy sources. The latest location will support expansion in the TMC’s core sectors, including finance, law and marine/offshore.
