Published Apr 02, 2008American rap mogul and businessperson Kanye West recently launched his own travel agency under his company West Brands, LLC.
Together with the William Morris Agency (who also collaborates with the likes of Puff Daddy, P.Diddy, Diddy, or Sean Combs, etc.), the companies plan to assure a travel experience the will reflect Wests style and approach to living. Yeah, so in other words, only those living the "good life will be able to afford it? Actually, it's quite the opposite.
The travel company, fittingly called Kanye Travel Ventures (KTV), aims to meet the traveling and leisure demands of Wests worldwide fan base. West joined forces with a team of expert travel consultants in order to provide his fans with a cost-effective travel-planning method. The site enables travelers to plan their trip in full, down to hotel stays and attractions. Future phases of the venture are calling for travel packages with tickets to Wests concerts and concert merchandise. (Ka-ching!)
This business move will be a great marketing tool for his upcoming "Glow in the Dark North American tour (also featuring Rihanna, N.E.R.D. and Lupe Fiasco), which commences April 16 in Seattle, and stops off in Canada for five dates:
5/20 Montreal QC, Bell Centre
5/21 Toronto ON, Air Canada Centre
5/27 Saskatoon SK, Credit Union Centre
5/29 Edmonton AB, Rexall Place
5/30 Calgary AB, Saddledome
