Scheduling for World Routes will close on Friday 5th September, just one week from now! If your delegate package includes a diary of pre-scheduled meetings and you haven’t made your requests yet make sure you get them in soon as possible to avoid disappointment as diaries are filling up fast!
Taking place on 20-23 September, co hosted by the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) and Choose Chicago, World Routes attracts the most senior representatives from a wide variety of organisations who wish to meet, plan and conduct business for new global routes, and over 6,500 meetings have already been scheduled for this year’s event.
Delegates should log into their Routesonline profile and use the online Meeting Requests System to make meeting requests with other attendees. The website allows airports, airlines, tourism authority delegates and anyone else with an entitlement of pre-arranged meetings to log-in and submit their requests online. This means that City Pair (airport to airport) and interline (airline to airline) requests are also now available.
Meeting requests can be submitted and amended at any time until Friday 5th September when scheduling closes. To begin requesting meetings delegates should follow the below steps:
- Register or Log-In to your free personal networking profile
- Enter your PRC (Personal Registration Code), which you should have received when you registered, into the box displayed on the homepage, ensuring you have selected World Routes on the slider
- Click ‘Submit PRC’ and you will be directed to your meeting request page.
New for this year, we have created a step- by-step guide of the scheduling process on our website. This will make the meeting request process as easy as possible for delegates.
Preparing for your Meetings
To make the most of your meetings at World Routes you need to be prepared, providing a short presentation or report covering all key points. You also need to be well informed about the company you’re meeting with and aware of any opportunities that exist there so make sure you’ve done your research. The Meeting Requests System also provides delegates with the perfect platform to prepare for their meetings in Chicago as, during the requesting process, access to Routesonline company profiles is available helping delegates select the right companies to meet with by providing all the information Routesonline has to offer straight to the central meeting requests page.
Company profiles on Routesonline can provide you with a wealth of information about the company you’re meeting with. Make sure your own company profile is kept up to date and start connecting with other delegates on Routesonline in the weeks leading up to the event. Initiate new, or continue existing dialogue with prospective customers ahead of the meetings which will take place at World Routes. Connect now and start networking!
