STR Destination Handling has been founded in October 1980 by Hugo E. Stinnes. For several reasons the further development of the company might be considered as a successful one:
- STR started with seven partners, today 22 companies from all over the world are represented by us. Incoming Agencies and Destination Management Companies are by far the biggest group within the portfolio.
- Not only the number of partners increased continuously, the number of employees grew, too. Today, the STR team in Heusenstamm near Frankfurt counts eleven members.
- The foundation of STR CEE (STR Central Eastern Europe) based in Budapest in 2007 makes the company even stronger. STR CEE has got three employees who take care of the markets Hungary, Czech Republik, Rumania and Slovakia.
- And, last but not least, two partners who did the very first steps together with STR in 1980, are until today members of the STR network: Pacto (Indonesia) and RMG Tours (Singapore). Hopefully we will keep on walking and working together for another 30 years!
- In January 2016, the MICE rep STR proMICE was founded.
