As Managing Director, I am pleased to present our range of national and internationally recognised and connected qualifications allowing us to both increase our range of service offerings and streamline the planning process to a single point of contact – perfect when using a number of supplier services.
Through our qualifications we are able to directly align our services across a range of other professional service providers. In doing so we are able to better negotiate for better rates and inclusions as the need for out sourcing is decreased.
What is accreditation?
Accreditation is independent recognition that an organisation, a service, a program or activity meets the requirements of defined criteria or standards as set by the peer issuing organisation. Accreditation provides quality and performance assurance for the owners, managers, and staff or an organisation, and for the consumers they intend to serve. While accreditation is a tool by which a firm may use to measure and improve their performance and outcomes, it is also a set of provisional guidelines by which the accredited organisation must abide by.
Our areas of operations are bound by the guidelines as decreed by IATA, the global governing body for 290 World Wide Airlines, 400 strategic partners with over 100,000 IATA - accredited agencies, and the Australian Professional Conference Organisers Association – the peak leading body representing the interests of Professional Conference Organisers and Event Managers in Australia and New Zealand.
IATA – TIDS
Designed for travel agents and other tourism sales intermediaries, the IATA Travel Industry Designator (TIDS) is a unique code that allows your bookings to be recognized by industry suppliers from major hotel & resort chains, cruise lines, car rental companies, theme parks, railway companies, etc. IATA – TIDS accreditation ensures we have global identification and are recognised across local and international travel and tourism industries and authorities, allowing the accredited organisation the ability to facilitate the opportunities of conducting business with suppliers of travel and tourism related products and services.
