Originally founded by Graham Collins in 1998 as Tour Travel International, the company became known as AAUK in 2001.
Graham had previously toured or worked alongside artists such as Genesis, Phil Collins and Supertramp before moving into corporate event and travel management where he worked for such prestigious names as Hilton Hotels, Hogg Robinson Travel (now known as HRG) and Kodak Limited where he dealt with special event and travel management.
In 1995 Graham moved to the Gemini Music Travel Agency where he was to take on Peter Gabriel's personal and tour travel along with his global WOMAD festival requirements. In the next few years, he went on to manage the travel logistics for the likes of George Michael, Alanis Morissette, Oasis, Jools Holland, The Moody Blues, Jonny Lang, Hanson, Worlds Apart, Let Loose, Jack Dee, Lee Evans, Jo Brand, Bonnie Tyler, Babylon Zoo among many others.
In 1998, a leading music production company encouraged Graham to set up his own music travel agency and Tour Travel International was born opening with an 11 month world tour for Zucchero.
Clients such as George Michael, Geri Halliwell, Bond, James Brown, Fish, Lisa Stansfield, Peter Gabriel, Womad and many others all travelled the world utilizing Graham's personal service based upon 25 years of working within the music, event and travel industry.
By 2001 customers were also requesting additional services which resulted in the company name change.
Additional services were added such as artist management, logistics and tour management, media planning and presentation, concert booking and promotional tours, merchandise distribution, marketing, A&R & drum technician services, all drawn from our extensive history within the music industry, spanning 35 years.
Over the last two decades, we have continued to evolve and expand in the ever changing business world and today offers a wide selection of bespoke management and logistical services to the music, entertainment, leisure and corporate industries.
Our clients are located right around the world, yet we retain a personal and professional service that is all too often missing in modern business and this is something that we pride ourselves upon and is central to our customer's satisfaction.
