HOW WE STARTED
In 2008 I was looking for a new challenge and an opportunity to start my own venture. I love my job as a travel operator and have always had a passion for music. I wanted to incorporate leisure, work, friends and my own personal interests in my next adventure. This combined would become VIA LIPPKE.
My entrance to the music industry began with the opportunity to fill the position of booking assistant for M.A.N.D.Y. In pursuit of focusing on travel bookings, I was selected by Wilde Booking for travel agent operations.
Many of my close friends and colleagues worked in the industry and my extensive network provided many requests for travel. A niche market soon appeared and I took it upon myself to implement a business model. In 2008, VIA LIPPKE was born and from day one the customer base grew solely by word of mouth.
In 2010, my longtime personal friend Christiane joined the business. A twenty-year friendship bound by trust, understanding, and mutual support resulted in a professional team-based business environment. With the expansion of the business and growing number of clients, Deniz and Robbie now support & complete VIA LIPPKE.
The closely integrated team has allowed our business to support the presence of its artists & agencies 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
