success 2016 Beneragama Buzz aus(July 5, 2016) Founded in October 2012, Buzz Export Services was conceived as a marketing firm with a focus on the travel industry. Their range of services caters to individual client needs, supplementing their innovative and creative solutions with diligent market research, strategic planning and trend analysis. "We saw the opportunity to not only serve our clients by enhancing the traveling consumers’ experience, by building an evolving network within the industry, with Brand Partners and airline clients", said CEO Victoria Beneragama.

Victoria’s drive to grow her business led her to obtain the first certification of WEConnect International in Australia in June 2013. Believing that WEConnect International’s extensive corporate network would give her firm access to new markets, namely the U.S. travel industry, she was introduced to the organization’s local market lead Anne Tesch. As Victoria puts it, with Anne it felt “like a true partnership, with her championing [the] business, facilitating introductions within other regions to potential clients, contacts and supply partners.”
