When traveling is part of an event, a coordinator's first concern must always be safety. Carlson Wagonlit Travel’s (CWT) corporate meeting and events service recently partnered with International SOS, a service that offers pretravel advice, medical and security alerts and a Travel Risk Assessment tool among other things. "International SOS’s event membership and add-on services help clients prevent a variety of incidents from escalating into costly situations," says Cindy Fisher, vice president of CWT Meetings and Events.
CWT has a core offering that includes traveler tracking, alerts and reporting. With this new partnership, event coordinators will have the added security of knowing a top travel security company is looking out for their event. According to Fisher, the cost of utilizing add-on services from International SOS will depend on the size and location of the event, as well as the duration of the stay and the number of participants in the event.
