Delta Edge Meetings – Premium Benefits and Superior Flexibility
When it comes to meetings travel for your busy, on-the-go Road Warriors, a simple booking process, premium benefits, and flexible pricing top the list of essentials. To help you plan and price meeting travel for your company, Delta is proud to offer Delta Edge Meetings™, designed specifically to integrate with Corporate Sales Agreements.
When you register a meeting with Delta Edge Meetings, you gain access to valuable benefits like reporting and financial incentives. Attendees receive Corporate Priority benefits, including better seat choice, priority boarding, and priority service recovery in the event of an irregular operation. Plus, your meetings count toward contract fulfillment. Customers are also eligible for incentives for meetings with 50 or more attendees traveling on Delta or codeshare flights. And as part of Delta’s core mission of creating a more Sustainable future for travel, Delta offers the option to use a backend rebate in UATP funds to purchase Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
Delta is never satisfied with the status quo, so Delta Edge Meetings is always expanding and improving. In 2022, teams across Delta have been hard at work to enhance these meetings products, reporting, financial incentives, and 24/7 support, with customers success as the top priority. Delta has implemented feedback from meeting planners, corporate travel managers, and TMC partners focused on flexibility, simplicity, and value. With improved efficiency and upgraded processes for Delta Edge Meetings, Delta’s turn time for pricing administration has dropped from three days to 24 hours. Later this year, Delta partners will get access to a new, enhanced Meetings platform, with on-demand tools at their fingertips.
“We’re always listening to and collaborating with meeting planners, corporate travel managers, and TMC partners to create new features focused on flexibility, simplicity, and value.”
