Powerful ITG Forum will keep agents ahead

November 13, 2013 MICE No Comments Email Email

Express Ticketing’s Independent Travel Group Business Forum in Hong Kong running November 21-24 will unveil new offerings for members as well as full brand disclosure of marketing collateral and a virtual walkthrough of ITG’s italktravel brand franchise stores.

Tom Manwaring, CEO of ITG said ITG delegates would learn of the new services and technological enhancements as well as work with supplier partners to maximise business opportunities.

“This is our fourth ITG forum and with 125 delegates, including the phenomenal support of 23 preferred air and land partners, it is our biggest and is indicative of the continuing momentum of ITG in the marketplace,” he said.

“There will be some serious business done at this conference which carries a ‘power up’ theme,” Mr Manwaring said. “And it won’t be based on theory. Members, for instance, will learn of the new technologies and be able to switch them on as soon as they get home.”

The forum is structured to ensure two-way dialogue and interaction through a program of expert speakers, panel discussions, hands on networking, 1:1 meetings between agents and partners, with time for networking and socialising.

The Travel Corporation is hosting the awards dinner at the 360 degree view SKY100 restaurant, Sabre Pacific is sponsoring the Welcome Function at the Woobar at W Hong Kong, social media marketing expert, Kim McKay will include practical implementation strategies for travel agents and Qantas is sponsoring finance journalist Michael Pascoe who will deliver the “Power Up” keynote address and moderate the Talk Business discussion.

Additional major air sponsors are Cathay Pacific and Virgin Atlantic.

The forum and accommodation is at the 5-star W Hong Kong Hotel in Kowloon.

The Express Ticketing platform is used by some 500 ITG and Select Group agents across Australia.
