Global meetings and events made easy with this international business travel booking service
Getting half a dozen people in the same office to agree to the same meeting time is a challenge. But arranging business meetings and events for employees from around the world could make an HR person’s head spin. There are the physical logistics, the changing airline connections, the time zones, the languages, the special needs. The more people have to attend, the more these details are multiplied, and the more things can get lost in translation.
This is further complicated by the fact that most travel agents are strongest in their own country, rather than being truly international, limiting their ability to offer an entire travel management solution. And online-only booking sites with one-size-fits -all service don’t take into account more complex travel requirements, exceptional needs or customers’ technical questions, leaving them to fend for themselves.
Fortunately, there is a business travel solution that answers all of these concerns.
Egencia, part of the Expedia group, is a complete corporate travel agency, specializing in international business travel. For 7 years, Egencia has been organizing business group travel for companies around the globe. With its relationship with the Expedia network, the travel management company combines the most robust of online travel booking tools and technology, massive purchasing power, plus fully integrated offline phone support for its valued customers worldwide. Egencia is more than a travel agency; in fact, people refer to it as a travel management company. Beyond just getting people to the event anywhere in the world from anywhere in the world, they will even help organize the events themselves, even what attendees may do in their downtime.
For example, Egencia recently organized the travel and helped design the events around a world conference in Shanghai for an electronics company, bringing together more than 200 group managers from around the world. Elements such as accommodations, evening entertainments, activities, meetings, registration, etc. were all handled seamlessly by Egencia, and attendees were able to book their own travel effortlessly online in their home countries using Egencia’s online booking tools.
For a telecommunications client, Egencia orchestrated a more intimate corporate travel solution for a VIP sales event in Iceland for the company’s 35 best salesmen. The attendees enjoyed five days of original activities exploring the island. Egencia faciliatated organizing the flights, accommodations, evening entertainments, activities and more. Egencia meticulously researches hotels, services and activities available in the area to help companies plan interesting and appropriate activities pre and post meeting.
None of this flawless service is an accident. All aspects of Egencia’s business travel solutions are designed especially for –and have been road-tested by– road warriors from all over the world. Egencia also offers VIP business travel services are worthy of being called VIP.
Attendees get access to a dedicated website devoted solely to their meeting, complete with timetables and location details for the event and all activities. This valuable feature, beyond merely providing information and keeping everyone organized, serves to foster the feeling of being on the same team. Eventers can even access the details from their mobile phone or PDA.
Such a high level of service would seem to be more expensive than a DIY travel solution. But Egencia’s business travel services are perfect for companies controlling corporate travel costs because of the efficiency, purchasing power and seamless integration around the globe that Egencia offers.
The right business travel solution matters even more when doing business internationally. Companies that want to bring together employees from everywhere, and make them all feel like part of something special, would do well to arrange their corporate travel through Egencia.
