Bankersavenue.com, an exclusive social networking website for the financial sector, and Expedia Affiliate Network have today announced a partnership which will give Bankers Avenue members booking access to Expedia’s hotel products through a white label portal on bankersavenue.com.
The Expedia hotel offering currently encompasses over 100,000 properties across the globe, ranging from one to five star hotels, bed and breakfast properties, unique guest houses, self catering properties, gites and villas.
The global scale of Expedia’s product ensures highly competitive pricing and breadth of choice to the members of Bankers Avenue.
Since its launch in early 2008, BankersAvenue.com has steadily climbed in popularity among bankers and finance professionals and now has more than 1500 members, and hundreds of pending invitations.
The members represent over 600 financial companies of all sizes. This independent platform provides a place for finance professionals to exchange views, meet like-minded people, and discuss issues that concern them the most.
Emiliano Caradonna, the founder of Bankers Avenue, commented: “We’ve partnered with Expedia to give our members attractive offers for their hotel booking plans.”
“We have been gathering feedback from our members regarding their preferences and suggestions for the site and specifically asked them which feature they’d like to see added to the portal.
“More than 80% wanted something that would save them sufficient money in the tough economic times. A good proportion also wanted a feature that could help reduce their travelling expenditure. So the partnership with Expedia was the ideal fit giving our members a fast and efficient way to make hotel bookings.”
Cameron Jones, director of business development for EAN EMEA, commented: “Expedia’s global product offering and the ease of integration of our white label solution was key to forging the partnership with Bankers Avenue. We offered a solution that could be tailored to the partner’s business needs and in this case tailored to the needs of their members.”
