The Special Event Company of Raleigh, N.C., announced a partnership with Raleigh-based Travel Management Partners.

TMP provides clients with a local planning experience with access to global resources, customized program strategies, cost savings and 24/7 customer service.

The partnership gives The Special Event Company’s clients access to TMP’s services. TMP’s clients will also be able to access the company's meeting and event services.

“What started as a simple phone inquiry has resulted in the perfect marriage between two progressive-thinking companies, each experts in our respective fields," says Sally Webb Berry, CEO, The Special Event Company. "The growth opportunity for both companies is spectacular!”

“I agree,” says John W. Lewis., president and CEO, TMP. “It’s rare that you meet and bond so quickly with a company where mutual skill sets complement each other so seamlessly. We’re very excited about our new partnership and look forward to working closely together in 2017 and beyond.

The SaaS platform, Wix.com, has released a new builder for business owners, planners and venue operators to create customized seating maps. Users can also assign ticket pricing based on the location of individual seats, and any variation of seating can be mapped, including tables, rows of seats, areas with general seating (e.g., a standing-room-only area), reserved VIP sections, or a combination of options.

 

If the early registration numbers for IPW, the annual international trade show of the U.S. Travel Association, are an indication, global hospitality professionals are ready to return to the United States. By the end of March, more than two months ahead of the June 4-8 gathering in Orlando, Florida, registrations by international buyers and media had nearly doubled last year’s delegate count.
