Ovation today launched a strategic partnership programme to provide DMC services for its clients in destinations - including Australia, Costa Rica and Finland - where it does not currently have offices.

Patrick Delaney, managing director of Ovation, said the company would meet its target of 100 destinations through "a combination of start-ups, acquisitions and expansion of our strategic partner programme".

Ovation is in talks to appoint partners for Australia, the Baltics, Costa Rica, Croatia, Finland and Portugal.

Partners have already been appointed for Greece, Hungary, Malta, Morocco, Poland and Turkey.

Ovation's policy is to appoint as partners the leading DMC in each destination and selection is based on industry reputation and operational performance among other criteria.
