Hong Kong is a very popular destination choice for all kinds of events because of many reasons. Known as Asia’s business hub, the city enjoys international reputation for its intriguing and exhilarating options and its East-meets-West culture can guarantee to add the ‘wow’ factor to every MICE event.
Are you exploring the logistics of taking a group to, or even plan an event in the Chinese metropolis? What are some clear benefits you could add right now to your group, that will make your planning process easier as well as cost effective? What can you make to stand out in your job as a meeting planner?
We’re recommending today 2 major game-changers to consider:
1. Partnering with SkyTeam airline alliance and using the SkyTeam Global Meetings Service for your next event in the Chinese business hub.
First of all, what is the service? It’s basically an airline booking service for large events. With the SkyTeam Global Meetings Service you can organise airline tickets for all your event participants, making the process efficient, flexible and getting many benefits for using it.
How do you qualify then? If your event has a minimum size of 50 participants coming from at least 2 different countries from where the event takes place, you are ready to start using it. The system fits for all congresses and for any kind of sport-, culture- or corporate events.
Please see below the list of airlines within the SkyTeam group which can fly your business event attendees to Hong Kong from around the globe:
- Air France
- China Airlines
- China Eastern
- China Southern
- Garuda Indonesia
- Kenya Airways
- Korean Air
- Vietnam Airlines
- Xiamen Air
Why is it especially useful for Hong Kong? A brand new SkyTeam lounge at the Hong Kong International Airport sets new standards for pre-flight waiting time, providing you with a Noodle bar, lounge areas, Yoga Room, showers and many more.
Check more details for the Global Meetings service here on the SkyTeam website and here is a video for you that demonstrates how simple the registration of your events can be and what your benefits are.
2. Work closely with the Convention Bureau: If you are planning events, no matter their profile, convention and visitors bureaus can be the ace in your sleeve. In addition to online tools like budget planners, local events, maps and guides, CVB’s have special staff members who can work with you to get full information on appropriate hotels, restaurants and activities for and around your event.
