Uniglobe LGI Travel (Western Canada) has announced signing a deal as a preferred partner for air transportation with ConferenceDirect.
“We are excited about our future and our plans working with ConferenceDirect and their clients,” said Rick MacSwain, Director, Leisure Travel, Groups & Incentives, Uniglobe LGI Travel. “ConferenceDirect has an excellent team of industry leading professionals that will assist with our continued growth for group travel.”
ConferenceDirect is a successful conference and event planning company with 325 associates managing over 11,560 events annually. This new relationship will allow ConferenceDirect to provide a full service offering for conference and event clients to include flights and other modes of transportation.
Adds MacSwain: “Uniglobe LGI Travel specializes in group travel but not in the conference or event planning space; therefore we are not a competitor and a great fit to compliment the services of ConferenceDirect. We see an incredible opportunity within the conference and event groups market providing transportation services.”
With nine locations across Western Canada and over 25 years under the Uniglobe brand, Uniglobe LGI Travel focuses on vacation and group travel.
