The events in Australia brought together some of our most valued clients across 
the country for a reception at The Calile Hotel in Brisbane on April 10th and 
at The Rook in Sydney on April 11th.

At the events the Bedsonline sales team provided a short presentation of 
Bedsonline's new 360 degree value proposition, highlighting how the company is 
committed to being the ultimate partner for travel businesses.

As part of the integration of TravelCube into the Bedsonline platform, the 
Travelcube platform will be phased out in the coming weeks in Australia, so all 
retail travel agents' new bookings should be completed on the Bedsonline 
platform - whilst existing bookings will remain accessible and modifiable on 
the TravelCube platform (based on the terms and conditions of the reservation 
on the TravelCube platform).

Peter Jones, Regional Sales Manager, Pacific at Bedsonline commented: "I am 
very pleased to have this opportunity to celebrate the launch of a new 
Bedsonline with our loyal clients in Australia! The turnout at both events was 
fantastic and I want to thank all our partners for their support.

"For some time now we have been speaking with our customers to explain to them 
how they will benefit from these changes. Overall the feedback about the new 
enhanced offerings, improved payment options, operational support and enhanced 
sales team of 14 frontline account managers have been very positive - and we 
feel certain that this will help our Australian travel agents to boost both 
revenues and profits.

"Whilst we are closing the TravelCube platform to new bookings in the next few 
weeks our customers should rest assured that they will have full support in 
accessing existing bookings made via TravelCube to make modifications or 
cancelations."
