Agreements guarantee advantages and discounts when buying airline tickets and booking hotels for the fifth edition of the event
For its 2017 edition, WTM Latin America & the 47th Business Event, the main world event in the Latin American travel industry, has confirmed a partnership deal with HotelMap, the wold’s biggest hotel reservation platform, and Oneworld, an alliance between the world’s main airline companies, which between them offer flights to more than 1000 destinations.
The agreements that have been signed will guarantee discounts on flights and accommodation for all those participating in the event, which will take place between 4 – 6 April in Expo Center Norte in São Paulo.
Oneworld flight reservations can be made on the exclusive page (www.oneworld.com/events), using the access code that will be made available by WTM Latin America. Tickets can be bought for flights arriving up to one week before the event starts and departing up to one week after it ends.
The partnership with HotelMap (http://latinamerica.wtm.com/en/help/how-to-get-there/hotelmap/) makes available the latest hotel reservation technology, with the additional benefits of a discount on all types of accommodation and ease of reservation by way of the system that is connected to the event’s accreditation page and that automatically identifies the user’s language and device and allows for the offer to be personalized according to the participant’s profile.
WTM Latin America’s director, Lawrence Reinisch, is confident that the alliance with the main companies in the travel and hospitality sectors will bring even more tourism professionals to the event. “With Oneworld and HotelMap we’re going to be able to offer an even more complete service in WTM Latin America. The reservation systems are easy to use, making it possible for each participant, whether an exhibitor, buyer, the media or a trade visitor to make their reservation quickly and firmly”, he said.
The agreements with Oneworld and HotelMap were set up by Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE), the business unit of Reed Exhibitions and the world’s leading company in the organization of travel and tourism industry shows, which include the World Travel Market, IBTM Events and International Luxury Travel Market portfolios.
