Kintetsu International’s Annual Travel Showcase Attracts Record Number of Travel Vendors and Clients This Year!

KIE’s Travel Trade Show Expands This Year to Include Airlines Partners representing Latin America and Mexico, as Agency Rapidly Expands to Destinations beyond Japan.
NEW YORK - June 23, 2014 - PRLog -- KIE/Kintetsu International held its 5th Annual KIE Travel Showcase, Thursday, June 19th, at the beautifully renovated Park Central hotel.  Due to the overwhelming response from participating travel vendors and KIE clients, this year’s travel showcase was moved from their New York City office – where it has been held for the last four years - to a hotel venue to accommodate the expansion.   In total, over 10 major airlines, 40 major tri-state hotels, National/Enterprise car rental and various vacation vendors exhibited their products and services.  In addition, close to 200 KIE clients attended this year.  All vendor and client participation totals represent record numbers.

KIE’s Travel Showcase gives participating preferred travel partners an opportunity to promote their products and services directly to Kintetsu clients. KIE's clients are mainly corporate customers, who travel all over the U.S., as well as internationally; including Japan.  This unique forum allows vendors and KIE’s clients the rare opportunity to directly exchange information to learn more about the supplier's services, as well as access to their discounted air, car and hotel rates - exclusively afforded KIE clients.  In addition, Deem@Work, a KIE affiliated partner, also joined for the first time - showcasing the online booking portal and expense management system available to KIE clients, designed to save their travelers time and money.

According to Assistant General Manager, Bill Sarcona, “I believe we are the only travel agency holding such a unique event.  The growth and expansion this year was truly overwhelming.  This event is the perfect forum for potential and new clients to get a better understanding of the many benefits associated with using KIE for all their travel management needs.
