Event Planning Expertise
Travel Design DMC and conference planning teams offer a dual expertise that is unmatched in the industry. We have been honing our skills in both fields for years, and we can be your strategic partner on all elements of your event, including building itineraries, finding the best entertainment options, putting together transportation and staffing plans and creative solutions for all those on-site hiccups.
Keeping it “Green”
Travel Design prides itself on being a leader in green conference initiatives, including on-site recycling and composting stations, carbon offsetting programs, green on-site task forces, and eco-friendly conference materials. Both our clients and the industry at large seek after our expertise in sustainable conference planning. We have helped “green” such prestigious events as the World Energy Congress and ISO 26000’s Plenary Meeting on Corporate Social Responsibility.
Our leading specialists have sat on the APEX Green Meetings and Events Practices Panel, the ISO/TC250 “Sustainability in Event management” committee, and have been invited speakers for the Canada East chapter of the Professional Conference Managers Association (PCMA). To underline its commitment to the planet, Travel Design embraces sustainable practices right in its own offices, such as composting and recycling, proving that anybody can go green!
An on-site dream team: Polished and professional staff for any task
When we say our people represent excellence and professionalism, we mean all our people. Whatever your needs for on-site staff, you can be assured that we will not only find the most qualified candidates for the job, but that each one will exude the excellence and professionalism that you have come to expect from our project managers and coordinators.
Our database of dynamic individuals covers everything from security, interpreters, on-site registration, travel/hospitality information desk, exhibit support, hosts/hostesses, room monitors and more. Moreover, Travel Design is an international company through and through, and we can provide staff in English, French, as well as any additional language of your choice.
To guarantee your conference the best image, our staff undergoes a strict selection process and is thoroughly briefed on all responsibilities. We want to look good so that you look better.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Getting your people where they want to go
Road, railway and beyond – Travel Design’s transportation services truly covers it all. Our meticulous methodology combined with transportation coordinators with years of experience allow us to take care of all your transportation needs. Need a sedan at the airport to pick up your guests? Done. How about a fleet of shuttles to mobilize hundreds of delegates to an off-site evening? We can do that too, and a lot more.
Our management and route development approach not only get you the transport you need, but assures you a smooth ride. We assess any construction around your planned routes, coordinate with the city for any necessary road closures or parking permits, optimize the use of public transit where possible, evaluate pedestrian flow and crowd management, coordinate all signage, and more.
Marketing & Communications Strategies
Want the world to know about your next event? So do we, and while magic tricks are nice, we rely on a communications strategy that mixes daring with discipline to spread the word. Along with shouting from rooftops and running through the streets, our communications experts will make the most of all the other tools at your disposal: traditional and emerging Medias, bold and creative branding, sophisticated marketing collateral, and a plan to bring it all together.
Concept Design & Coordination
Nothing makes your event stand out like a great idea, and our team of concept designers and coordinators cannot wait to help you discover yours. Together with some of the most remarkable suppliers anywhere, JPdL’s specialists will work tirelessly to add your event to their long list of standouts. Being satisfied is simply not enough. We want you to be whisked away, excited, and proud to offer your participants an experience to remember.
At your fingertips: Virtual Event Technology
Open up your event to the world of virtual technologies and see it transformed. Our solutions will not only make your event more accessible, but the participant’s experience is heightened through innovations such as webcasts, and online chats and communities. Virtual technologies mean more of all the great things your event already offers: heightened interaction between participants, greater ROI possibilities, and a wider scope of influence.
More importantly, in the increasingly competitive world where each event is fighting to distinguish itself, our virtual event technologies can help ensure your event’s future by making it more relevant. With no geographic limitations, anything is possible!
