Travelport Acquires Deem: A Letter from Deem President David Grace

March 10, 2023

I'm delighted to announce that Travelport, a global travel technology company, has acquired Deem. This partnership will position Travelport and Deem to help tackle a growing post-pandemic need for a fully integrated corporate travel technology solution — one that gives access to the award-winning functionality and multi-source content expected from a premier travel technology.

Deem has long offered a leading, highly flexible, modern platform to global customers. Award wins that include Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies list and a market leader ranking by IDC Research just last year are a testament to the mastery and passion of our entire team.   

Travelport’s continued investments in this space and now in our business are a clear indication of their belief in our potential. As we look toward the future, we believe that the value of bringing Travelport and Deem together lies in the unique expertise and capabilities that each organization brings to the table. With our shared vision around transforming travel, we are confident that together we can create the next generation travel experience, with valuable solutions centered around global content, NDC offers, sustainability and accessibility. 

We are excited about Travelport leading the travel retailing transformation and the benefits this will create for customers and partners. We will have the ability to offer  award-winning, complementary tools that are modern and easy to use, and provide access to products and services that are quickly becoming critical to business travel programs. 

We are working hard with Travelport to ensure a smooth transition. To our customers and partners, thank you for your continued trust and loyalty in Deem. We are excited to embark on this new journey.
