TORONTO — Here’s a look at what Avoya Travel in the U.S. has done with its new ‘Innovation Center’ in San Diego County, CA.

Avoya, which has a handful of travel agent members in Canada, says the idea behind the centre is to “help drive greater levels of collaboration, innovation and growth for the Avoya platform.”

It’s all part and parcel of the company’s goal of becoming the world’s number one vacation platform by 2025.

Avoya says the new Innovation Center does not replace its headquarters in Ft. Lauderdale. Instead, the modern new space “will help Avoya continue to attract and retain top talent” with new video-first technology that will allow in-office personnel to better connect with remote employees, supplier partners and Independent Agencies using video chat and live-stream meetings.

The centre’s design also incorporates individual workspaces, private phone booths, collaborative meeting rooms and gathering areas. A lounge offers comfortable pods and couches to support a variety of staff work styles and functions.


Atrium Café

The main hub is an atrium café that encourages employee community and wellbeing, says Avoya: “Here, staff have flexibility, can socialize, listen to music and have access to an arcade, unlimited snack bar and more.”

The open area can also accommodate inclusive company events, meetings and a broad range of functions for all staff and stakeholders.

Ergonomic sit-to-stand desks, a new aromatherapy room, game room, gym access and a premium coffee station round out the offerings.

“We are thrilled to open our new Innovation Center where our staff and key stakeholders can inspire and invent together in an environment thoughtfully designed to embody Avoya Travel’s core values and our mission of enriching lives through inspiring travel experiences as the number one vacation platform,” said Jeff Anderson, Co-President of Avoya Travel.
