Expanding its luxury river cruise portfolio Butte

first_imgExpanding its luxury river cruise portfolio, Butterfield & Robinson has announced Rhine River Cruise Biking 2018. Departing from Basel, Switzerland with port stops through France and Germany, the eight-day trip explores terraced wine regions, medieval castles and UNESCO heritage sites along 1000 kilometres of historical river bends and bike trails. Rhine River Cruise Biking is the latest in a partnership between B&R and Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection.“In addition to unique, unforgettable active travel itineraries, B&R is committed to providing travellers with cultural experiences underscored with luxurious settings,” says Norman Howe, president & CEO, Butterfield & Robinson. “As such, we’re very pleased to encourage our travellers to ‘unpack once’ as they make their home aboard Uniworld’s luxury fleet of beautifully designed ships for a week of active travel.”The newly announced biking tour also complements B&R and Uniworld itineraries along the Danube and Rhône rivers, launched earlier in 2016 and offering unprecedented onboard comfort, fine dining, personalisation and first-class service.“We partnered with Butterfield & Robinson to fulfill our shared desire to provide guests with unforgettable and unique travel experiences,” said Ellen Bettridge, president & CEO, Uniworld. “In 2018, we continue to expand this partnership across more of Uniworld’s most popular Rhine itineraries, pairing the best of river cruising with curated and active exploration by bike.”The voyage by port and pedal includes a stay aboard the S.S. Antoinette, Uniworld’s first “Super Ship” with 67 uniquely designed staterooms and nine suites. Daily biking excursions will lead travellers through the Black Forest and Wiese Valley in Germany, along the river to Obernai and Strasbourg and to the colourful foothills of the Vosges Mountains in France. The last stops through Heidelberg, Koblenz and Cologne reinforce the reach of the Rhine, a former trade route dating back a millennium.“Not only can our travellers immerse themselves in touring the cities and valleys along the Rhine, but we’ve designed an unbeatable week of biking routes,” said Chris Mark, director, Central & Eastern Europe, B&R. “Cyclists can choose their level of activity and still enjoy the well-deserved renaissance of this ancient trade route, its attractive landscapes and friendly residents.”last_img read more

Startup IPOs Gone for Good

first_imgWhy are startup IPOs on the decline? Dive into the data and find out.Maeghan Ouimet of Inc. writes that the number of startup IPOs in recent years “has fallen off a cliff.” While “heavy regulation and high compliance costs” or “lower tech company valuations”  could be to blame, Ouimet looked at decades worth of data and drew different conclusions. Startup IPOs simply don’t pay off, as “post-IPO profitability for small companies has been on a downward trend.” As a result, “more small companies are selling out to larger firms” as a more profitable exit strategy, since “the average M&A deal price is the highest it’s been since 2007.” For startup and expansion-stage companies, the best bet for the board right now is selling to a bigger cousin with deep pockets.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
