It makes the process efficient, flexible, saves money and time and gives an added value: The attendees save up to 15% on air fares for international meetings, events and conferences in more than 1,050 destinations.

If a congress planner is about to organize a congress in the Netherlands for example, then SkyTeam Global Meetings Service comes into consideration. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is part of the alliance and therefore, delegates enjoy a simple and logic solution to travel to Amsterdam from all places where KLM is well connected to – and these are many. The only thing that has to be done is to register the event online.

They can easily add the air travel to the event package, offering the possibility to their attendees to directly book and buy online their ticket with discounts up to 15%. This product can be also offered by convention bureaus when bidding for an event.”
