Kintetsu International’s Travel Showcase attracts record numbers
KIE/Kintetsu International held its 8th annual KIE Travel Showcase, last Thursday, June 29, at the beautifully-renovated Park Central Hotel, in midtown Manhattan. In total, over 40 of KIE’s preferred travel partners attended; including 6 major airlines, 35 major hotel brands, and National/Enterprise car rental company. All KIE’s preferred suppliers exhibited their products and services to a record number of KIE clients who attended this event.
KIE’s Travel Showcase gives their participating preferred travel vendors an opportunity to promote their products and services directly to Kintetsu clients. This one of a kind forum allows a direct exchange of information between their preferred vendors and clients.
According to Assistant General Manager, Bill Sarcona: “The originality of this event is all due to the unique concept of bringing together our suppliers and clients. As such, a wealth of information is exchanged, allowing our customers to fully understand and appreciate how using KIE will reduce their travel costs, as well as better manage their travel program.”
KIE clients were also given an opportunity to tour the Park Central Hotel, which recently completed a multi-million-dollar renovation. KIE’s travel showcase took over their elegant Park Lounge Bar and Restaurant, located on their main level. Finally, KIE clients also enjoyed a special raffle ceremony, where many exciting prizes were awarded, by all the air, car and hotel vendors who attended.
Sarcona continued, “The showcase was a huge success and plans are already underway for next year’s event, with many hotels vying to host this prestigious event.”
