Nexion has announced the completion of a business travel fam trip in London, England, and its second year of Corporate CoNexion events.
The exclusive programs provide Nexion’s corporate-focused travel agents with access to resources and “behind-the-scenes” opportunities to help them grow their businesses, Nexion said. The fam trip was held in April, and the second annual Corporate CoNexions recently concluded in Atlanta, Georgia – and included Nexion’s top-performing corporate travel agents who book international and domestic travel.
The international, corporate travel-focused fam trip was hosted by United Airlines and Edwardian Hotels in London, England, from April 7-11. The invitation-only event included United BusinessFirst travel for seven of Nexion’s top, international, corporate travel agents from Newark Liberty International Airport to London’s Heathrow Airport. Agents received access to the United Club at Newark as well as a walking tour of the United Airlines terminal. Participants enjoyed accommodations at The May Fair Hotel in London, and increased their knowledge of hotels catering to business travelers with site inspections of the Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Street Hotel and the Radisson Blu Edwardian Mercer Street Hotel.
During the London fam trip, agents also:
Enjoyed a guided walking tour showcasing the highlights of London
Rode the famous London Eye
Received a London Pass to explore the city on their own
Were treated to the VIP traveler area of Heathrow
Toured the Queen’s Terminal (which is less than two years old), the United Club and received access to the United First Class Lounge
The second annual Corporate CoNexions was hosted by Delta Air Lines from June 10-12 in Atlanta, Georgia, for 38 of Nexion’s top business travel agents. One of the highlights included the opportunity to fly a Delta plane in the airline’s flight simulator. The Atlanta Corporate CoNexions also included:
An in-depth tour of Delta’s in-flight training center to experience firsthand how Delta manages in-flight emergencies
A tour of Delta’s flagship Sky Club, including the Delta Sky Deck, which puts travelers right above the taxiway
Specific training on topics such as government and legal issues, customer care and utilizing technology
An exclusive, intimate cocktail reception and informal trade show where Nexion’s corporate travel agents could network with specific supplier partners in a relaxed setting.
Next year’s Corporate CoNexions event will be held June 9 to 11 in Chicago, Illinois, and will be hosted by United Airlines.
