Sabre Travel Network Middle East (STNME or Sabre), a global technology company serving travel suppliers and agencies, has teamed up with one of Egypt’s leading training institutes, Management and Technology Experts Group (MTE), to provide the general public for the first time with Sabre training in Egypt.
The agreement will see Sabre provide MTE with the software and training support to enable them to offer Sabre training via its travel industry course packages.
Daniel Naoumovitch, Sabre’s CEO said, “The travel trade has tremendous job opportunities for the youth all over the world, and particularly in Egypt where it is a dynamic and key industry that drives the economy. Now, with a Sabre-certified course from MTE, new students will have access to international-level training making them competitive on a global arena.”
Dr. Mohamed El Ghor, MTE Group’s CEO welcomed Sabre’s partnership as a substantial positive step for the travel industry in Egypt. “Our aim at MTE is to offer the very best of international courses to the local populace. This is a critical time for Egypt and by partnering with an international travel industry conglomerate like Sabre, MTE hopes to help revitalise Egypt’s tourism industry that has suffered in the last year. As a course that equips the youth with the necessary knowledge directly from the experts, these Sabre-certified modules are sure to be fast sellers,” said El Ghor.
MTE Group delivers professional services in the areas of programme management, advanced technology solutions, and training to governmental and commercial clients. The CEO of MTE Group, Dr. Mohamed Kamal El-Ghor, lived and worked in the United States for 25 years where he gained experience in managing strategic programs with international customers and subcontractors for one of the world’s leading American companies.
