The Association of Corporate Travel Executives has unveiled details of a higher level of partnership with oneworld, the group’s first exclusive Global Access Partner from the airline industry.
The announcement was made during ACTE’s recent international travel summit in Amsterdam – an event that attracted 891 participants including 207 buyers, 14 airline CEOs, and dozens of ranking industry executives from 50 countries.
ACTE executive director, Greeley Koch said: “This is the perfect event and setting to make this announcement. Never before have so many top business travel managers and airline industry heads come together under one roof. It is fitting that ACTE and oneworld have started working together, here, at the highest level, to drive change, innovation, and progress on a global scale. These additional resources guarantee an especially energized and ambitious program from ACTE in 2017. I welcome oneworld to ACTE’s global sphere of influence.”
oneworld has worked with ACTE as a sponsor of its events and activities around the world — the last two years as a Chairman’s Circle partner.
Now, the alliance will play a more strategic role in ACTE’s plan to introduce new technology, further develop traveller centricity, and promote a more perfect work/life balance for travellers, while boosting corporate profitability. oneworld will feature prominently in ACTE’s three biggest global conferences in 2017, all of which take place in the alliance’s key hubs:
- New York, April 23 to 25
- Tokyo, August 15 to 16
- London, October 11 to 13
José María Alvarado, director of sales for oneworld, said: “oneworld aims to be the first choice airline alliance for frequent international business travellers – who are just the people that ACTE is in business to represent. oneworld is honoured and delighted to be building on the successful partnership we have developed with ACTE to become its first top-level Global Access Partner from the airline industry.”
