Travel Technology Group, international experts in event housing and travel services, and Luggage Free, specializing in luggage shipping worldwide, have teamed up to offer exclusive shipping options and rates to all event participants.

With this partnership, Travel Technology Group addressed an immediate need most event participants have, whether attendees or exhibitors: shipping materials in a convenient, cost-effective manner.

Within the logistics of exhibiting at an event, there is always the problem and cost of shipping materials to and from an event. For attendees wanting to enjoy post-conference recreation such as playing golf without the hassle of shipping their clubs, this door-to-door service allows for event participants to focus on more important things such as ensuring a productive trip.

For 25 years, Travel Technology Group has geared its event services and proprietary reservation management system to the needs of its customers. Event organizers of all types—tradeshow, association, meeting management companies, convention centers and convention and visitors bureaus—benefit from Travel Technology Group's unique offerings, which include:

  • Proactive full event services team
  • Multilingual event websites
  • Seamless integration with any registration system
  • Real-time group bookings and inventory management
  • Air, car, and destination services
  • Call center services through professional agents
"We are thrilled about our partnership with Travel Technology Group," said Jeff Boyd, president of Luggage Free. "The timing was right. In light of the fact that many business travelers now have to pay to check their bags while still enduring all the hassles associated with traveling, our service is more relevant than ever."

Perhaps most reassuring is the fact that Luggage Free moves all of its shipments independent of commercial aircraft. Luggage Free's door-to-door service retrieves luggage in advance of flights and delivers bags directly to a traveler's destination. The service will allow event participants to avoid airport confusion and the hassle of dragging bags to and from the airport altogether, presenting an alternative to both personal inconvenience as well as costly airline fees.

"Travel Technology Group always strives to bring innovative services to better accommodate our event participants," said Bob Derham, managing director of Travel Technology Group. "Luggage Free is a great fit with our suite of event services—they truly fill a need for many of our clientele. We continue to be one step ahead of the competition, and continue to deliver services and products which simplify the events management process."
