Get on-board with the Transport provider for UK Inbound Convention

As a new member of the UK Inbound Association, we are delighted to announce that we will be this year’s transport provider for the upcoming UK Inbound Convention in Glasgow. And we’re providing all UKinbound Convention attendees a special offer on your first booking with us*.

So who are we and how can we help you?

Here at Event Connect we specialise in providing transport solutions for tours, excursions, conferences and events across the UK. With our UK wide network of road transport partners and vehicles ranging from; coaches, luxury minibuses and executive cars, we work as an extension of your team providing a full service, tailored transport solution to suit both you and your customers. 

So if you don’t already know us then you are in for a treat! We’re giving you the chance to sample the Event Connect experience for yourself as we’ll be providing the transport at this year’s UKinbound Convention. All you have to do is jump on-board, sit back and enjoy the journey. 

Why chose us

Well, lots of reasons really. We work to find the best transport options, at the lowest cost to suit your needs. In the past, you might have used a broker to organise your transport, and while we’re not a broker, we do offer the same benefits – and a few extras- that might make your job a whole lot easier. 

  • Transport management services – let us take the stress away when we coordinate an end to end transport management solution from staffing, route planning, and local connections- we can help with it all.
  • Vehicle selection – getting it right. If you’re unsure of which vehicles will suit your tour group or excursion, leave it to us and we will guide you in selecting the vehicles you need. With access to a range of vehicles from operational to elite we’ll choose a solution to best suit your needs, so whether it’s 50 or 50,000 we’ll get everyone where they need to be.
  • Around the clock support – tours and excursion often require some fast thinking, reactive support when things don’t go to plan. Don’t worry, we can provide 24/7 support and our regional control teams will be on hand when you need them. So, if something goes wrong at 3 am, we’ll have a solution. 

We understand that transport is unique depending on your market, audience and budget, so don’t worry if what you need isn’t on the list we’ll work with you to find a solution to best suit your needs. Our team are our greatest asset so why not get in touch today to find out how we can help?

Not only can we provide all of the above, we are also providing an exclusive discount for all UKinbound members attending the conference when you book with us direct, allowing you to save money on transport with our 10% discount on your first booking with us*.  Don't panic, if you're not attending the Convention this year we still have fantastic transport deals for all UKinbound members to enjoy.

We look forward to welcoming you during your UKinbound Convention until then keep your eyes peeled for the appointment schedules, which will be sent out by UKinbound, and make sure you add us to your appointment list.  You never know it could be the best 8 minutes of your career!

Like we said, if you’re not able to make it this year, remember there are still lots of advantages to working with us as your transport provider, so even if you're not attending, get in touch with us directly and find out how we can support you and your team.
