Our role at Concierge Business Travel is to orchestrate the seamless flow of travel so that the AOC and team members enjoy the best possible travel experience and have the peace of mind to focus on what they do best, in this case, winning Olympic medals.”

Concierge Travel Group Executive General Manager Mary Gava added, “This partnership could not be a better fit for both the AOC and Concierge Business Travel. We are proud to be the official Business Travel Partner and proud to be associated with the AOC and the Australian Olympic Team.”

“The AOC ‘s association with Concierge Travel will ensure smoother passage for not only our athletes but also key officials heading to the 2016 Summer Games in Rio.

This partnership with the Australian Olympic Committee is a continuation of Concierge Travel Group’s commitment to supporting Australian Athletes and the broader Australian community; from sponsoring Indigenous Australians with great potential for success in the field of Rugby Union with full scholarships at the University of Sydney and also sponsoring a legatee in association with Legacy Australia and St. Andrews College. The purpose of these scholarships is to nurture the professional and personal development of such young students so they are empowered to become leaders and role models in their communities, to also supporting charity events such as Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea, Earth Hour, Clean Up Australia Day and also being the major sponsor of the 2012 Rolex Sydney to Hobart yacht ‘Occasional Coarse Language Too’ in support of the Lymphoma Association of Australia with all corporate and private sponsorship going to the Association.

Concierge Business Travel will continue to hold themselves to the highest standards to ensure they deliver the AOC and the Australian Olympic Team the sort of results they demand from themselves, the best. As a passionate supporter, they will also proudly rally their clients and the Australian public behind our Australian Athletes in the lead up to and at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
