Radius Travel has welcomed the Inntel into its global agency network. Leading Radius Travel’s new MICE strategy will be 20-year travel industry veteran Henrietta Balint.
While the majority of Radius’ member agencies offer MICE services in addition to core transient business, Inntel is the first specialist agency to join the global TMC’s network, and marks a strategic bid to enhance the network’s MICE capabilities in key markets.
Inntel is the largest independent MICE agency in the UK with 30 years of knowledge and experience within the industry. Inntel provides its many clients with strategic MICE programmes with innovative meetings technology and experienced and talented staff.
Joining Radius as director, Global MICE Sales, Balint brings a wealth of experience, having spent more than 15 years with American Express in commercial roles covering both MICE and transient travel sectors. A native Australian, Heni has lived and worked in Europe, Asia Pacific, and North America, and currently resides in the United States.
Kieran Hartwell, Radius senior vice president, global sales & services said: “Radius clients value the unique global travel solutions our local network delivers, and as they work to optimize their MICE programmes, they’re looking to us to deliver the same differentiated service. Bringing on Henrietta and Inntel Ltd. are key enablers to maximise the global opportunity for our clients.”
Inntel CEO Douglas O’Neill added: “We are delighted to be joining Radius. Over the last 30 years we have been delivering specialist MICE services through dedicated teams and innovative technology within the UK market so we are excited about the new opportunities this membership will offer.”
