Speaking at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, Jose Maria Alvarado, oneworld director of sales, unveiled a series of enhancements to the oneworld events programme, launched in May last year.
These include removal of booking fees for flight reservations made via oneworld events' dedicated website and discounts available on bookngs made via designated travel agencies as well direct on the oneworld.com/events website.
Organisers can simply select their designated travel agency, which must be an IATA-registered agency, when registering the event online.
Meanwhile, the addition of five new member airlines over the past 18 months, including Qatar Airways, US Airways and TAM Airlines, has expanded the network covered by oneworld events to almost 1,000 destinations in more than 150 countries.
"Since the launch, oneworld events has been used by more than 100 large-scale events attended by over 200,000 delegates so we have got some good feedback which led to these improvements we are announcing today," said Alvarado.
Oneworld events is aimed at conferences, exhibitions and special events for at least 100 intenational attendees flying from at least two regions, and offers a number of benefits for organisers, including reporting tools and the ability to earn travel credits, whie attendees can qualify for discounts of up to 25% and online support.
