The Travel Tech Show debut at WTM leads to £105m in deals

April 3, 2014 by  
Filed under Travel Deals

The Travel Tech Show at WTM 2013 will generate more than £100 million in business deals for its exhibitors from its debut event.

Independent research among World Travel Market’s exhibitors shows The Travel Tech Show at WTM will generate an impressive total of £105 million, either through contracts signed at the event or from negotiations with WTM Buyers’ Club members, which will lead to deals signed before WTM 2014.

And the signs are looking positive for 2014, as the second The Travel Tech Show at WTM will be 20 per cent bigger than the first, seeing it consolidate its position as the largest dedicated travel technology event in the UK.

Several existing exhibitors have already re-signed for 2014 including TripAdvisor, CodeGen, Illusions Online, Pegasus Solutions, Comtec, Open Destinations, TravelSim, ISO Travel Solutions and Vibe Software.

Overall, WTM 2013 will generate a massive £2.2 billion of deals – up by 19 per cent on 2012 – thanks in part to the increased focus on travel technology.

The ‘show within a show’ concept of the Travel Tech Show at WTM 2013 attracted 59 new exhibitors, compared to WTM 2012.
It meant that nearly a quarter of all the new businesses at WTM 2013 were within The Travel Tech Show at WTM.

Amadeus, Comtec, Pegasus and Dolphin Dynamics were some of the familiar technology firms exhibiting last November, alongside newcomers such as Silverpop, reputation.com and Venere.

More than 7,000 visitors at WTM were interested in buying travel tech products, and more than 10,000 of WTM’s visitors also experienced The Travel Tech Show at WTM – more than a third of the total number of visitor delegates.

The Travel Tech Show at WTM’s events programme was also very successful, with 8,101 attendees – a massive 88 per cent increase on 2012 – making it the most popular sector of events at WTM 2013.

The programme covered social media, mobile, blogging and technology, and generated almost half of the total 16,290 attendance of the WTM 2013 events programme.

The 2014 events programme is poised to be even more popular, with an increased focus on mobile technology.

The Travel Tech Show at WTM, Senior director, Simon Press said: “The growth of the Travel Tech Show at WTM has been phenomenal and demonstrates the value of making it a stand-alone event.

“The quality of exhibitors for the inaugural event was impressive and it is heartening to see so many of them, including Peakwork, TrustYou, Travel Designer, DCS Travel Booking System and ChannelRUSH, rebooking for 2014.

“This success of the inaugural Travel Tech Show at WTM confirms that it is a must-attend exhibition for technology companies, enabling them to seal deals and generate valuable leads.

“And the signs so far show that 2014’s event will prove even more lucrative for technology firms taking part.”

Travel Guy: Boston hotels offer special package deals for Red Sox fans

April 3, 2014 by  
Filed under Travel Deals

One of the great things about the Red Sox being the reigning World Series champions is that we get to celebrate it pretty much all year.

With the home opener set for tomorrow, Boston’s hotels are ready to extend a baseball-centric hospitality to visitors and fans. What does that mean for travelers heading into town? Baseball-­related swag and specials.

 

XV Beacon (15 Beacon St.) is rolling out a deal designed to evoke all the anticipation of a midsummer contest — with a touch of extravagant comfort. With the hotel’s Follow Me to Fenway package, guests get hot pretzels and local beer upon arrival for a one-night stay in the hotel’s Beacon Hill Studio, a tour of Fenway Park and transfers to and from Fenway in a Lexus courtesy car. Watching the game in your room with the pretzels and beer is comfortable, but, of course, tickets to a game would make the experience complete. These can be had for an additional fee (Tickets range from $200 to $450, depending on where you want to sit — those Monster seats don’t come cheap. Yankees game tickets are more expensive, require one week advance purchase and are non­refundable. The rates for this package start at $595. (To book, call 617-670-1500 or go to XVBeacon.com.)

 

The Hotel Marlowe (25 Edwin H. Land Blvd., Cambridge) is continuing the World Series celebration with a We Are the Champions package. Guests get a one-night stay, four T passes — the Lechmere stop is most convenient to the hotel — a six-pack of beer and peanuts for those old enough, and non-­alcoholic beverage and Cracker­ Jack for kids, and a copy of the World Series championship DVD. Upon check-in, guests will score a baseball amenity package — a pack of Big League Chew, a Red Sox cap, a pack of baseball cards, some eye black and a mini bat. You’re on your own for tickets, but rates start at $329. (To book, call 800-825-7140 and mention rate code “champs” or go to hotelmarlowe.com.)

 

The Hotel Commonwealth (500 Commonwealth Ave.) has dedicated an entire suite to the game — a detailed and luxurious haven where baseball enthusiasts can immerse themselves in their passion. This suite boasts 600 square feet steeped in baseball circa 1930s and ’40s. Think “The Natural” and its steamer trunks, vintage-style furniture, leather wingback chairs (where better to read that day’s program?), hardwood floors, oriental rugs and a king bed in a separate bedroom and living area divided by French doors. Throughout the suite you’ll find classic Americana including a 1967 World Series program (it’s OK, we’ve won three since then), vintage trading cards with faces like Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Johnny Pesky and Jackie Robinson, a 50-inch plasma screen TV — admittedly not very “The Natural”-like but perfect for viewing one of the 40 classic baseball films from the in-room DVD library. One of the best parts: location. A quick walk from the hotel will put visitors right outside Fenway Park. Rates vary, but let’s say, for example, the night of April 23 strikes your fancy, when the Sox will attempt to put a hurting on the Yankees, the Baseball Suite is $599. Of course, the hotel’s Fenway Suite will also fit the bill. It might not have the atmosphere of the Baseball Suite, but it does have direct views of the ballpark at rates starting at $359. (To book, call 617-933-5000 or go to hotelcommonwealth.com.)

 

The Inn at Longwood (342 Longwood Ave.), less than a mile walk from Fenway Park, has several options for Sox fans that include tickets to the game. The First Base package provides overnight accommodations, two tickets­ in the bleachers, a $20 gift certificate to the Baseball Tavern and overnight parking for $379; the Second Base package has all of this, but the two tickets­ are in right field boxes ($429); the Third Base package gets you two tickets in the loge section, plus the accommodations, gift certificate and parking, ($529); and the Home Plate package is for those who already have tickets — in this case guests get accommodations, the $20 gift certificate to the Baseball Tavern and parking for $269. (To book, call 617-731-4700 or go to innat longwood.­com.)

 

The Red Sox are scheduled to play the Yankees seven times in April alone — four of those games are at Yankee Stadium. If you’d like to see the rivalry from the perspective of the enemy, head to New York’s Gramercy Park Hotel (2 Lexington Ave.). It’s here that Babe Ruth frequented the hotel bar after games, partaking in what was said to have been one of his favorite post-game activities. More than just hosting ghosts of baseball players past, the hotel can secure tickets to Yankees games, arrange transportation to and from the stadium and reserve a pre- or post-game dinner at the hotel’s restaurant, Maialino. Guest rooms at the hotel start at $399, and tickets — depending on seats — range from $60 to $1,150. Transportation to and from the game is $360 round-trip, but guests may be better served taking the subway or the Yankee Clipper to avoid traffic issues. (To arrange any part of these options, call 212-920-3300 or go to gramercypark hotel.com.)

    The Travel Tech Show at WTM leads to £105m in deals

    April 2, 2014 by  
    Filed under Travel Deals

    More than £100 million in business deals is expected to be generated for exhibitors from the debut Travel Tech Show at World Travel Market last year, organisers claim.

    A total of £105 million will come either through contracts signed at the event or from negotiations with WTM Buyers’ Club members, which will lead to deals signed before this year’s exhibition, according to independent research among exhibitors.

    The Travel Tech Show at WTM will be 20% bigger this year as it consolidates its position as the largest dedicated travel technology event in the UK.

    Exhibitors re-signed for 2014 include TripAdvisor, CodeGen, Illusions Online, Pegasus Solutions, Comtec, Open Destinations, TravelSim, ISO Travel Solutions and Vibe Software.

    WTM 2013 will generate a total of £2.2 billion-worth of deals – up by 19% on 2012 – thanks in part to the increased focus on travel technology.

    The ‘show within a show’ concept attracted 59 new exhibitors, compared to WTM 2012.

    It meant that nearly a quarter of all the new businesses at WTM 2013 were within The Travel Tech Show.

    More than 7,000 visitors were interested in buying travel technology products, and more than 10,000 of WTM’s visitors also experienced the Travel Tech Show at WTM – more than a third of the total number of visitor delegates.

    The Travel Tech Show events programme attracted 8,101 attendees – up by 88% on 2012 – making it the most popular sector of events at WTM 2013.

    The programme covered social media, mobile, blogging and technology, and produced almost half of the total 16,290 attendance of the WTM 2013 events programme.

    The 2014 events programme will have an increased focus on mobile technology.

    Travel Tech Show at WTM senior director Simon Press said: “The growth of the Travel Tech Show at WTM has been phenomenal and demonstrates the value of making it a stand-alone event.
