Organisers of the Asia-Pacific Incentives & Meetings Expo (AIME) have launched a partnership with Ozaccom Plus, allowing AIME attendees travelling to Melbourne to compare a range of preferable hotel and flight rates via a simplified online booking tool.
AIME attendees will now be able to easily book their flights and accommodation via a link on the AIME website. The site will display the preferable rates arranged for attendees by the AIME team as well as the best online rates being offered that day so that they can compare and book all on the one site.
Sally de Swart, Reed Travel Exhibitions Director for AIME, says the new initiative is an exciting step forward for AIME and is thrilled to be able to offer this easy service to attendees.
“Exhibitors and visitors to AIME 2012 will appreciate how easily they will be able to book their travel to Melbourne through the Ozaccom Plus system. It takes the guess work out of travel planning and means our attendees don’t need to spend their valuable time trawling different booking websites,” Ms de Swart said.
The site will include preferable rates from Australian Hotel Association (AHA) properties, as well as three additional properties, with more hotels to be added up until December.
Liza Watt, Principal of Ozaccom Plus, is excited about partnering with AIME to offer its new accommodation booking system which is believed to be the only one of its kind in the world.
“This approach for booking accommodation and travel to an exhibition of this nature has never been provided before, and as Reed Travel Exhibitions and Ozaccom Plus are both forward thinking organisations it is the perfect partnership to introduce Australia’s business tourism industry to the future of accommodation management for exhibitions and meetings,” Ms Watt said.
