The Firenze Convention Bureau has recognised the need for international delegates travelling into Florence to have access to high quality, low cost airport transfers to and from the centre of the city and has signed a contract with leading transfer providers, Terravision (www.terravison.eu) to deliver this service.
In order to strengthen the meetings industry in Florence, the Firenze Conference Bureau has implemented a Congress Card for international delegates enabling them to receive the following:
* Online tickets from Pisa Airport to Florence Santa Maria Novella for the discounted price of €4.99
* 10% off food and beverages purchased at the Terracafè in Florence
* A 10% discount on any airport transfer service between 18 European airports and city centres operated by Terravision Group on a daily basis.
Carlotta Ferrari, director of Firenze Conference Bureau, confirmed her enthusiasm for the partnership: “This agreement is the result of a goal even greater than the Firenze Convention Bureau constantly takes: offering a service more comfortable in the city of Florence. We want the business tourists to feel completely satisfied not only for their stay during the conference, but throughout their trip, from departure to return in their own city. “
“As a company we have recognised that business travellers are paying far more for transfers from airports to the centre of cities than required. In these challenging economic times, the cost of travelling to and from the airport can dramatically increase the cost of a business trip. At Terravision we have responded to this demand for a great value, high quality, low cost transfer service which we operate from many European airports to the centre of cities and destinations for delegates and we are delighted to partner with the Firenze Convention Bureau to increase business tourism to Florence and Pisa.” Commented Yakuta Rajabali, Vice President of the Terravision Group.”
The Pisa airport proximity to Florence and the full day covering of shuttle transfers, from the first flight of the morning to last one of the night, makes the Terravision offer very competitive for business travellers.
