CONEXUS Mobile Alliance and TripAdvisor partner to develop promotional campaigns for customers of CONEXUS members

04 Apr. 2013

 

CONEXUS Mobile Alliance (“CONEXUS”) and TripAdvisor®, Ltd., the world’s largest travel site, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop joint promotional campaigns  that  will  enable  customers  of  CONEXUS-member  operators  to  enjoy  additional benefit through the use of TripAdvisor content while traveling.

Under the MOU, CONEXUS and TripAdvisor will work together to explore the benefits of TripAdvisor’s mobile products and vast travel content offering which recently surpassed the 100 million reviews and opinions mark to customers of the participating CONEXUS-members namely: Far EasTone Telecommunications Co. Ltd., Hutchison Telecommunications (Hong Kong) Limited, KT Corporation, NTT DOCOMO, INC., PT Indosat Tbk, Smart Communications, Inc., StarHub, TrueMove and VinaPhone.

TripAdvisor and CONEXUS members in Japan, Singapore, and Thailand are already working together to promote roaming packages to their customers. More information about these roaming packages can be found in the TripAdvisor mobile application available on iOS and Android smartphones.

“The CONEXUS Mobile Alliance continuously seeks opportunities to add value and differentiation to our services to CONEXUS members and their subscribers. With this partnership, not only are we able to provide worry free daily flat-rate data roaming packages, we will also enhance our ability to empower our customers with easy access to Trip Advisor’s community of like-minded travelers.” Said Alex O. Caeg, Chairman of the CONEXUS Mobile Alliance Board and Head of Smart’s International and Carrier Business Division.

”We are thrilled to take our partnership with the CONEXUS Mobile Alliance to the next level. TripAdvisor’s mission is to help people plan and have the perfect trip. Mobile phones are now an indispensable device at the travel destination and with this partnership, true to our mission, we further enable our travel community to take the wisdom of millions of other travelers with them in their pockets to great destinations around Asia.” says Nathan Clapton, VP Global Mobile Partnerships at TripAdvisor.

This collaboration complements other offerings of CONEXUS , which include Asia’s first daily data roaming flat rates --- all part of CONEXUS’ commitment to enhance the travel experience of its 350 million strong customer base whenever they roam.
