Whether you’re filming a box-office release or a TV season finale, you’ll be able to manage all the complex requirements of production teams and talent. Through us, you get a 24/7, 360° experience that covers all your pre- to post-production needs: planning, visa and passport services, on-trip support, post-trip analytics, and much more.
With production teams coming and going, you need the backing of a travel leader to make sure everything flows into place. Through our connections and resources, you can stay on top of it all, whether you need to source and book an amazing suite for a photo shoot or send a massive camera crew to a breaking news event that impacts the world.
Take a lot off your plate by getting everything you need to plan and book for season standings. And when the end of season brings a last-minute rush, you’ll have your flights and hotel all worked out, thanks to our industry connections, so you can kick back and enjoy the game.
Get help with everything from press junkets to event plans. With our services, you’ll have everything handled whether you need volumes of hotel bookings or an unforgettable, multi-hub event. From pre-trip to post-event, you can be confident that we’ll maintain the highest level of confidentiality for your talent and your teams.
Scheduling tours is a juggling act of reserving rooms in multiple locations, yet it’s second nature to us. We help you streamline it all. Through our relationships with key vendors and suppliers around the world, you get access to unrivalled choice in flights and hotels, plus the most attractive terms, agreements, and rates that are out there.
Sure, there are other travel management companies (TMCs) out there that may promise to have the best-fitting solutions, but there’s only one American Express Global Business Travel (Amex GBT). Here’s why we break the mould:
Our doors are open for you any time of the day or night. From the start, you’ll get a travel coordinator that takes down your unique requirements, details, special concierge needs, and data elements. From there, you can communicate by phone, chat, email – however you like. Have an emergency? You’ll have the back-up support of a travel counsellor who is trained in your industry and your specific trip needs.
Travel that’s highly customised and sometimes unpredictable requires relationships with key vendors for everything from finding the ideal venue to site logistics to room blocks. You can expect all that when you choose us as your TMC. As teams move from location to location, they’ll have booking options consistently available across multiple channels, no matter where they are in the world.
Because of our status as a bank-holding company, our data protections are robust and thorough. These protections are held to the highest standards and protocols which means your crew, your talent, and your brand are all in good hands.
Seeing carbon impacts at the time of booking will help you choose options that meet your emission standards. Post-trip reports will inform your decisions even more, so you can drive your sustainability strategies. Whether you’re booking a production crew or hosting an event, you’ll gather best practices on sustainability from a TMC that’s awarded EcoVadis Platinum status – the highest accolade for sustainability.
The best part of working with us is how we blend in seamlessly with your business, customising our services in the best ways possible for you. That could mean we provide concierge treatment for top talent or we go through months of rehearsals to coordinate the movement of news anchors, camera crews, and production teams, in anticipation of a world event. Get a better picture of how you’ll benefit:
Put time back in your day with an automated booking system that lets you book flights, hotels, and vehicles for hundreds of people at a time. Instead of spending days booking teams, you can do it in minutes.
All the excess baggage that comes with news and sports crews calls for careful prep. Leave that with us. We’ll work with airline media desks to best manage the heavy loads so that crews can get in and out of the airport quickly and you can take advantage of special media rates.
For all your contractors that need an easy way to book their hotel, they’ll have virtual payment cards integrated in your booking system, so you have insight on their location. Since camera crews need to board the flight with their cameras, we’ll arrange for them to board first. And if any of your teams need assistance, they can reach out to us 24/7.
We regularly monitor world events so we can quickly hold seats on flights when you need last-minute flights. On arriving, we’ll even organise a quick clearing through airport if needed. And the fact that we have long-standing relationships with airlines and hotels is another big plus when you need immediate bookings.
When reporters need to be at a risky location, we have routing strategies to minimise risk and get them to the front line, so they can get their story out there. Want to follow up on their safety? You’ll have a dashboard tool that lets you pinpoint their location at any given moment.
With production costs rising, it helps knowing you’ll get pre-negotiated rates on flights, cars, and hotels. You can maximise your savings with group air rates, plus special baggage rates for production teams. Curious about available tax incentives? We’ll work with your accountant to address all possible credits, so you can derive maximum benefits.
