Main Event Travel has become the Official Travel Partner of Dusk Till Dawn just weeks after securing a similar deal with the popular Genting Poker Series. The new partnership will allow both Main Event Travel (MET) and Dusk Till Dawn (DTD) to offer the very best options, prices and customer service to players attending DTD events in Nottingham and at other DTD events such as the upcoming International Stadiums Poker Tour (ISPT).
Under terms of the agreement, players who win their seats for live events that DTD are running will be presented with a voucher that will give them discounted accommodation that can be used at the event. Furthermore, satellite winners will have full access to the MET Concierge service.
“Main Event Travel.com is specifically focussed on meeting the needs of poker players, who are notoriously last minute planners –me included!” explained Dusk Till Dawn owner Rob Yong. “MET are able to get better prices by leveraging their buying power and can give a more dedicated service to our players – it’s a no brainer to get them on board to help with travel and accommodation with our club events and our external projects such as the ISPT.”
At all future major DTD events, there will be a Main Event Travel Store on site so players can simply stroll up to the counter and pay for a nearby room. This same store will be present at Wembley to aid ISPT players with travel and accommodation solutions.
Tom Reynolds, a director at Main Event Travel, spoke of why MET seems to be going from strength-to-strength.
“Since launch in early 2012, MainEventTravel.com has fast become the default booking site for poker players attending live events. Working closely with the major players in the industry such as DTD means we can commit to more rooms with our partner hotels and really look to drive down prices for the players. Combine this aggressive pricing with our industry specific knowledge and benefits such as Last Longer competitions for our customers, free wireless, late check-outs and breakfast means we are now positioned to offer ALL players the perfect package for their poker trips.”
