ACTE PENS ALLIANCE WITH ACCOR
THE Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE), alongside the Centre for Aviation (CAPA), has struck a deal with AccorHotels to be the official venue partner for the group’s Australasia conferences and education forums.
Eight high-level aviation and corporate travel events are on the cards for ACTE in 2017, with the conferences to be held across both Australia and New Zealand.
“We are delighted to partner with AccorHotels for our 2017 program,” commented ACTE president Kurt Knackstedt.
“We have carefully selected CBD properties that offer world class amenities, comfort and convenience for our audiences, which will greatly enhance our education, exhibition and networking activities.”
ACTE’s events this year attracted some 1,200 attendees including over 300 corporate travel procurement professionals.
The 2017 sessions will focus around senior executives from across Australasia’s corporate travel community, which include buyers, suppliers and intermediaries.
AccorHotels director of sales business travel Elizabeth Georgopoulos said the chosen properties were “well versed in catering to the needs of large conference groups”.
The CAPA/ACTE conferences will run from Feb through until Nov 2017, with the sessions held at the Pullman Brisbane King George, Novotel Canberra, Novotel Melbourne on Collins, Mercure Perth, Rockford Hotel, Mercure Auckland and Sofitel Sydney Wentworth.
