To say that this has been a busy year for Bags Inc. would be a major understatement. In our more than 20 year history of making travel easier, 2013 will go down as one of the company’s most eventful years.
We first began offering our Bags VIP luggage delivery service in 2012, available out of a limited number of airports for passengers flying on select airlines. Now, in 2013 — after the establishment of partnerships with the major U.S. airlines — we are able to offer the Bags VIP service at more than 250 U.S. airports across every state.
In addition to the expansion of Bags VIP, we have also expanded our Bags Airline Check-In service in 2013 by forming new partnerships across the country. Highlights include the first partnership between Bags Inc. and a shopping center, where we provide concierge services and remote airline check-in service to guests at the Fashion Outlets of Chicago. We’ve also brought the convenience of remote airline check-in to Las Vegas resorts and casinos, additional cruise lines, additional hotels, and many more.
Not to be outdone, Bags Parking & Guest Services had a busy year in 2013 providing parking management, valet, and guest services for numerous events and conferences, including UCF basketball games, the press conference announcing the addition of Orlando City Soccer Club as Major League Soccer’s 21st team, and many more. Bags Parking & Guest Services has also established several new partnerships with major hotels and resorts.
This rapid expansion of services — all in the name of making travel easier — also required the expansion of our staff and the establishment of a more robust online presence. In 2013, we launched our new consumer website along with rejuvenated social media channels. Now, you can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and our Bags Inc. blog for travel advice and company news. And — to complete our online revamp — we introduced our new corporate website to better explain to our business partners the many benefits of partnering with Bags Inc.
We’ve had many successes in 2013, but we’re looking forward to the coming year where big plans are in the works. At Bags Inc., we always find new ways to accomplish our mission, so stay tuned for even easier travel in 2014.
