Who We Are

The iZED Holdings success story launched with the new millennium, in the year 2000 with the establishment of TechTuners, a travel technology development and research company in Dubai, UAE. TechTuners was the first venture into business for iZED Holdings and far from the last.

TechTuners has grown considerably and now iZED Holdings traverses the globe and still ventures eagerly into new entrepreneurial feats, delving further into the travel and tourism industries and providing solutions to businesses around the world.

Now, a decade and a half later, iZED Holdings spans two continents, three countries and is home to five companies. Each holding provides essential support to different aspects of the dynamic travel and tourism industry. Our global network of professionals have an array of well rounded talents, depths of knowledge and variety of expertise.

TechTuners has grown with the technological shifts that have redefined the last decade and half. Since then computers have become household items, the internet grew to be a part of every day life and essential to the growth and spread of ideas. Information travels around the world as fast as a swipe across the screen of a phone.

TechTuners continues the technical revolution and charges ahead with innovative and inspired ideas and technology that supports every aspect of travel from growing business looking to expand to agents seeking a technological upper hand.

iZED Holdings has been at the forefront of innovation since the turn of the millennium and continues to advance the travel and tourism industry the world over.
