The relationship is our focus
Our well-established supplier relationships gives you access to key transport providers and over 300,000 hotels, independent properties, budget brands, guesthouses and serviced apartments around the world.
While our scale provides over half a billion pounds of leverage for negotiations, it's our supplier relationships that give us the knowledge to help our customers manage the entire journey, from the most cost effective and efficient routes, to that hidden gem of a hotel or venue.
Partner Engagement Day
Partnership, customer value and engagement is a key focus to our business, supporting our specialist proposition whilst sharing and embracing customer requirements.
With this in mind, each year we welcome some of our key strategic partners to meet with our commercial and customer facing teams for a day of networking and knowledge sharing at our Partner Engagement Day.
Take a look at the video from our 2018 Partner Engagement Day held at the Park Regis Birmingham:
