Blacklane Revs Up New Corporate Meetings and Events Service

Posted on February 24, 2016

LONDON — Global professional chauffeured service Blacklane is debuting its corporate meetings and event service Feb. 24 across all 50 countries it serves.

Service Details
Blacklane can handle events that involve thousands of people, such as financial roadshows, sales meetings, government meetings, trade shows, conferences, holiday parties and sporting events.

Event planners can reserve rides in multiple cities and countries for traveling
groups. Organizers can make special requests, such as buses, shuttles and long distance rides in combination with Blacklane’s standard vehicles.

Benefits
Blacklane says its new service will spare meeting organizers multiple hassles and challenges:

  • Time: Blacklane secures and combines the availabilities of tens of thousands of local professional drivers.
  • Money: Blacklane’s rates are 50% to 75% lower than legacy limousine costs.
  • Stress: Blacklane's multilingual staff can manage the entire ground transportation process. Services include booking vehicles, modifying reservations, on-site coordination and real-time service control.

Corinna Links, COO of Vertical Media, a Berlin-based publishing house for the
digital economy, said in a press release, “We were very satisfied with Blacklane as our event partner. We planned our event far in advance and committed to provide our guests extraordinary service. To make their transfers as comfortable and convenient as possible, we chose high-class business vans between the dinner and after-show party."

Earlier this month, the company began service in Las Vegas. Blacklane partners exclusively with locally licensed and insured professional drivers. Customers receive full duty of care, all-inclusive fixed pricing, and 24/7 customer service.

About Blacklane
Blacklane connects passengers with the spare capacities of licensed, regulated and insured professional drivers and limousine companies. Corporate and individual customers can book and schedule rides in over 50 countries, 180 cities and 400 airports worldwide. Blacklane guarantees low and all-inclusive fixed rates at the time of the booking with a unique pricing and dispatching algorithm.

The company combines multilingual 24/7 customer care with real-time service control for tens of thousands of common luxury vehicles available in Business Class and First Class tiers of service.
