Convention Travel Isnt What it Used to Be

By: Gordon_petten
Back in the days when our parents would head out to a convention you may remember them complaining about the transportation provided to them. In many cases, the company hosting the convention would opt to choose the cheapest transportation they could find. Quite often this resulted in an overused bus with no air conditioning or washroom facilities.

Today's convention travel is much different. Most companies recognize the fact that if they want their employees or clients to have a good time at their gathering; that it needs to start out on the right foot. The traditional convention travel of years past has given way to charter coaches and in some cases luxury vehicles.

For convention travel that is mainly by road, most companies will prefer the luxury of a charter coach. A charter coach is often a large bus with many luxury features. Oversized seats, televisions and washrooms are the norm on many of these types of charters. Guests are welcomed aboard and can take this form of convention travel right to their destination.

For guests who must first travel by airplane to the convention, their transportation will mainly consist of getting them from the airport to the site of the convention. For them, the popular choice seems to be a luxury car. This form of convention travel is usually either a town car or a limousine. The driver is normally instructed to meet the guest when the plane lands and then they are escorted to the waiting car. This leaves a strong, positive impression with the convention guest and they are likely to want to do business with the convention host in the future.

Arranging this form of convention travel isn't difficult at all. If you have several guests all arriving on the same flight you may want to offer a ride that has more room such as a stretch limousine or an oversized luxury van. It's important that your guests don't have to search for their own transportation in the form of a taxi or rental car. If you have invited them, it's your job to find suitable convention travel arrangements for them.

With the low cost of most forms of convention travel, it's easy to see why many companies are choosing to treat their guests to a comfortable ride. After all, your guests will remember each part of their experience, and you need to ensure there isn't anything negative for them to point out in the future.
