We are used to working on some of the world’s most spectacular and demanding events, so we understand the challenges they bring for tour and event managers. Our experience managing travel plans for artists, bands and crew matches the high standards of service and attention to detail that we have given to elite sports teams for decades, from Formula One to Olympic athletes.
We are leaders in the music and entertainment sector and know what it takes for artists to perform. We understand the flexibility and organisation that’s needed in managing a music tour – from last-minute cancellations to bespoke hotel requests.
From major festival appearances to more intimate style events, we are able to plan and manage seamless multi-date, multi-venue schedules for high-profile individuals and their supporting teams, including sustainable travel choices that minimise the impact of a tour on the environment.
Our long-standing partnerships with all major airlines, and our relationship with Amex GBT, means we have access to the widest range of standard and specialist fares, assuring our clients have access to the very best group rates for scheduled flights. We are also highly experienced in chartering flights for our clients, with established relationships with charter suppliers.
With over 45 years of experience in providing group travel solutions for elite sports, media, music and entertainment clients, we have developed successful, established, and long-standing relationships with accommodation providers, global hotel chains and in-country hotel managers. The strength of our relationships means our providers have developed a deep understanding of our needs and requirements, as well as those of our clients. It allows us to secure quality accommodation at the best possible value, with terms that will also enhance the experience for travellers, whilst taking care of their wellbeing. To help generate financial benefit from frequent hotel stays, our team can also advise on loyalty schemes, potentially unlocking a raft of added benefits and savings.
