For the eleventh consecutive time, CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A would receive the award for Best Tourism Operator. This would be highlighted by Viagem e Turismo a magazine that focuses on tourism and related activities in Brazil. At the time CVC had been recognized by the World Travel Market in a ceremony held in London for its continued innovative ideas and its overall contribution to the development of world tourism.
During the award ceremony the industry leader would take home 12 trophies making it one of the best performing tour operators in the world according to mercadoeeventos.com.br. CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A has been in tourism for as long as it has existed and has grown to become a globally recognized brand. CVC Brasil founder Guilherme Paulus has become one of the wealthiest individuals in Brazil as a result of its success and today employees more than 1900 people to help manage its direct operations. His rise to the top has not been without challenges and as Guilherme Paulus recalls, he almost closed CVC when it was just eight to nine years old.
The company at the time was facing a myriad of constraints, and a withholding tax introduced by the government then was not helping the situation. CVC was also being hit with a barrage of inspections that were constantly affecting its ability to operate. This would, however, serve to strengthen the resolve Guilherme Paulus had and he found himself working harder than ever. He began going after corporate clients by sending organizations’ proposals on ideas on where and how to plan their staff tours as well as giving them prices that were unbeatable at the time.
Life for Guilherme Paulus would change from that point on, and he focused more on improving this area of the company. By early 2000, the company was able to organize cruise ship tours to Brazil something that had not been done before. This was a time when innovative products were the key to remaining relevant in the market and as such they had to keep coming. The company invested in online marketing to further grow its portfolio.
