Star Alliance showcases its conventions and meetings travel products at IMEX 2015

Star Alliance showcased its conventions and meetings travel products at booth F485 during the IMEX trade fair which was held in Frankfurt, Germany.

Star Alliance Conventions Plus provides simplified travel solutions to organisers by providing access to the entire Alliance network through one of the member airlines. Delegates and one companion are entitled to fare discounts, depending on the type of fare, class of travel and airline used.

In addition to Conventions Plus, Star Alliance offers Meetings Plus as a further global product for the meetings market. Meeting Plus can be used for most meetings of 50 people or more, with attendees originating in at least three different countries.

“Our number of appointments with customers doubled from last year. The first Request for Proposal derived from our presence at the fair is already rolling. Many visitors were attracted by the self check-in kiosk we are using for the second time at IMEX," said Carina Hecher, Manager, Strategy, Alliance Business Products. "The exhibition enables Star Alliance to meet with end-customers, both new and existing ones, and helps building and maintaining relationships with our member carriers. The enhancement of the product last year seems to have positive impact and encourage the engagement of organisers to promote our programs."
