Qatar Airways introduces QMICE for meeting and event planners


MIDDLE EASTICCA member Qatar Airways has expanded its reach into the MICE sector with the launch of a new “one-stop solution” for meeting and incentive planners and conference organisers.
Through its new capability, QMICE, meeting and incentive planners who manage events for 20-300 passengers are able to block seats at pre-agreed fares by submitting a group fare request online.
Planners will also benefit from flexible booking conditions, including bookings from multiple points of origins for less than 10 passengers per departure across multiple flights and dates, and receiving event quotes more than 12 months ahead of departure.
According to Qatar Airways, QMICE will aid meeting planners who are looking to simplify and streamline their planning processes while receiving attractive benefits and discounts to help support their events.
Additionally, exhibition and conference organisers managing events with more than 300 participants – along with international associations and their appointed travel agents – may take advantage of discounts by using the Preferred Airline function offered through QMICE.
Further QMICE benefits include the convenience of booking Al Maha Meet and Greet, Doha Stopovers, Doha City Tours, and visa arrangements for Qatar through Qatar Airways Holidays.
Qatar Airways recently ranked second in the Skytrax 2014 world top 10 airlines list.
