Top tips for preparing for World Routes

With a little over a week to go until World Routes opens in Chicago, we have put together a list of top tips to ensure that you are fully prepared for the event.

Preparing for your Meetings

All delegates with pre-scheduled meetings should now be able to view their draft diaries online.

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 those all important meetings, whether pre-arranged or not, which will take place in Chicago.

Earlier this week Routes, in partnership with ASM and Flightglobal, delivered a webinar giving delegates the opportunity to hear from industry specialists advising on the perfect presentation ahead of World Routes 2014. If you missed it, don’t worry you can download it here.

Learn how to schedule, create and present all the essential information that airlines expect to hear.

World Routes App

Available to download now, the World Routes 2014 App will ensure that all essential information is available to you at all times. The App will once again provide easy access to full delegate listings, final diary access, and the event programme ensuring delegates are fully prepared for the day’s business.  Additional features of the Routes App include all an interactive floorplan, Strategy Summit speaker profiles, activity feed, your own personal profile, airline table numbers, social media links, and the opportunity to earn rewards and badges whilst competing on the app leader board.

Airport Transfers

New for this year, delegates are required to book their own airport transfers, which are free to all delegates staying in one of the Routes Official Hotels. Transfers to and from the airport will be running from Friday 19th September to Wednesday 24th September. Click here to book your transfers.

When you arrive at the airport, please follow the signs to where World Routes Welcome Desk is situated in the Main Arrivals Halls. A member of the team will then be able to direct you to your transfer, transfers are available from both O’Hare and Midway Airports.

It is important to note that delegates who have not booked their airport transfer in advance will not be guaranteed a transfer.

Visa Requirements

Make sure you have all the necessary documentation to travel to Chicago.  Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months beyond the period of stay, however, most nationalities do not require visas for social or business visits within a certain period. Further information regarding which countries will require a visa to enter Chicago can be found here.

In addition to the visa application form, relevant fees and photos, embassies may also require a letter of invitation from the inviting company.  Delegates requiring such a document from our hosts, Chicago Department of Aviation and Choose Chicago, should complete the electronic request form in full ensuring accuracy throughout.
