DFDS hosts ‘Future & Tech’ conference on board Pearl

Business Sales Nordic from BU Short Routes & Passenger offers conference and meeting services to companies and institutions on board our cruise ferries, Pearl Seaways and Crown Seaways sailing on Copenhagen – Oslo.

Together with DBTA (Danish Business Travel Association) and the crew, they hosted a conference on board Pearl where the theme was ‘Future & Tech’. It included a packed programme of speakers with inspiring information, such as Amadeus (global booking system), American Express business travel, FCM Travel, Lufthansa Group as well as SAP Concur that were giving exciting talks on AI (Artificial Intelligence), Chatboots and basically the potential of the travel industry.

Henrik Møller, Strategic Sales & Key Account Manager, says: “Almost 90 corporate travel buyers and travel service providers attended the conference. The group of participants were rather impressed with the upgraded design and look of the terminal, as well as our disembarkation efficiency of offloading 1,150 passengers in just 10-15 minutes.

“At the Kick-off Coffee Session, which took place outside our Conference Auditorium, many participants said that they were further impressed with our conference facilities.”

Following the formal DBTA welcome speech, DFDS introduced our business on the Copenhagen – Oslo route that offers a great venue for conferences, kick-off meetings and events in a different and inspiring environment.

After the conclusion of the official programme, the Business Sales team gave all guests a guided tour around the ship to showcase the conference and meeting facilities on board. The Sales Team received a lot of positive feedback from the participants and the DBTA board, including 100 positive LinkedIn postings from the participants.

“We made a lot of new interesting sales opportunities and contacts during the conference, and I am excited to see what it can lead to going forward. The Business Sales DK Team consisting of Bente Poppelhøj Nielsen, Anders Christensen and myself, would like to give a huge thanks to all the staff on board Pearl, who did a fantastic, professional job to make this important key event such a success,” says Henrik.
