Partners & Members

Founder Partner:     CDS Groupe

Created in 2001 and managed by its founding shareholder, Ziad Minkara, CDS Groupe was built around the world of hotels and business travel, embracing all its complexities and rapid changes, delivering the service expected by the market and providing a 360° response to the expectations of its corporate and TMC clients: a booking platform with a comprehensive range of accommodation solutions, support, relevant content, payment and reporting solutions, as well as customised developments.

Its unique positioning enables CDS Groupe to address the requirements of all business industries and company sizes, while focusing on controlling their hotel expenditure budgets.

In 2022, CDS acquired Goelett, pure Online Booking Tool, positioning the Group as the leading European technology integrator in the hotel and business travel sector, servicing corporates and TMCs.

After opening an office in Italy, CDS Group is expanding its presence in Europe with the acquisition of Corporate Rates Club (CRC), a company based in Germany and Croatia. This acquisition is designed to strengthen the execution of CDS’s strategy and accelerate its international expansion.
