12/15/2021

Palma, Spain, 15th December 2021 – Now that the borders are finally open in Australia and travellers are ready to hit the road again, Hotelbeds is pleased to announce a new preferred partnership with the Pacific hotel chain, Event Hospitality & Entertainment.

This agreement could not come at a better time as Hotelbeds is beginning to see some very positive signs for long-term bookings in the region over the next year with, bookings in the Pacific between July and December 2022 now 40% higher than the same period in 2019.

And for that very reason, Hotelbeds is delighted that as a result of this latest deal, it can offer its travel agent clients special rates and exclusive offers at Event Hospitality Group's 71 properties spread across Australia and New Zealand.

"We are delighted to continue working with Event Hospitality & Entertainment and to further strengthen our already excellent relationship," said Colm Flanagan, Regional Director of APAC Chains at Hotelbeds. He added that "this preferred partnership will be a further boost to inspire travellers, both domestically and internationally, to resume safe travel."
