What we do

Meetings and events are more than just practical ways to connect, face-to-face, with your stakeholders or prospects globally. They go a lot deeper than that. They’re memorable experiences waiting to happen, opportunities to be really transformative. In fact, they are a lot more strategic in scope and can be directly aligned to your business objectives and organizational culture.

Local knowledge for added value

That’s where we come in. We recognize how important meetings and events are to your business, especially when they’re being hosted beyond the borders of your usual base of operations. That’s why our approved member agencies are experts in their respective regions, with the kind of local knowledge and connections that go beyond the normal set up. This is about adding extra value at every stage.

Specialized solutions based on your exact requirements

We also understand that your meetings and events requirements will vary from trip to trip, and be influenced by all sorts factors. Whether it’s a last-minute meeting, client-facing or internal, or something altogether more extensive in scale and scope, our flexible solutions can be tailored to your exact needs.

Three levels of excellence

This is what sets us apart. Our approach guarantees highly distinctive deliverables that are entirely bespoke to you – they won’t be found anywhere else. The solutions we offer are grouped under three levels, depending on what level of support you are after.

  • Level I: This covers event management for both one-off or repeat events, including sourcing venues and looking after attendees.
  • Level II: This is a lot more specialized, with technology playing a much bigger role. Here you’ll have access to live marketing, virtual reality, and crowd streaming services.
  • Level III: This is a strategic and consultative package that covers the entire meetings and events journey. Comprehensive in scope, it’s ideal for delivering added value to your business.

FAQS

What’s your approach to global account management?

We believe account management should be consultative and analytical. Radius global account managers (GAMs) don’t just act as day-to-day contacts. They also proactively monitor client programs for savings opportunities and service issues, consolidating data and feedback from each country. At local level, local account managers work closely with GAMs during the implementation process, and are responsible for adherence to service requirements. Our GAMs are also supported by global analysis specialists, who provide market-leading consultancy on all aspects of a client’s business travel and travel expenditure.

Is your coverage global?

Yes. We have over 100 partner agencies across 6 continents. Every one of those agencies is a carefully vetted local expert and a shareholder in the Radius Travel business.

How do you ensure consistency across your global network?

Through rigorous vetting, demanding SLAs and deep relationships with our members. Agencies join Radius through a six-step process that ends with board-level approval. Once they join us, they go through an eight-week implementation program that includes data certification and training on our sales, account management and operations processes. Finally, they become shareholders with a vested interest in the reputation and growth of the business. As well as working to the same standards, we’re all working towards the same goal.
