“Both our agency and BCD Travel were going after a meetings travel opportunity. We already had the transient business of the client. We spoke with BCD Travel’s senior leadership and we agreed it would be better to collaborate on the opportunity. Bottom line – we won the business. Why? Because the client got the personal service they expected from us and the global reach and purchasing power they needed from BCD Travel”
