Wendy Wu inducted into British Hall of Fame, Travel and Hospitality
Pace-setting Asia specialist Wendy Wu has been inducted into the British Travel and Hospitality Hall of Fame as a result of the expansion of her Sydney-based operation into possibly the biggest tour operator into China from Britain.
The prestigious accolade recognises her one of the U.K. industry’s highest achievers in one of the world’s most competitive travel markets.
Having firmly based Wendy Wu Tours in Sydney, Wendy moved to London several years ago and quickly became known as having an unparalleled knowledge of China, its geographic format and tourist infrastructure.
Members of the Hall of Fame are well known for the business acumen and for the inspiration they provide to their peers and industry as a whole.
Marking the occasion, the British Travel Weekly said that the founder of Wendy Wu Tours in Australia 22 years ago now heads up a significant global company, which has extremely healthy operations on three continents – having opened office in New York in 2010.
Wendy was born in Tibet and did tertiary studies in northern China and Australia before joining a small suburban retail travel agency in the suburbs of Sydney.
She built an initial itinerary to China for her employer and then filled a group and personally escorted the tour – repeating the exercise several times before setting up her own operation.
The Hall of Fame appointment crowns an illustrious career which has been recognised in Australia and overseas with a range of awards for her unique services and industry leadership.
