Ovation Travel Group gives hardworking business travelers something to cheer about. Operating as Ovation Corporate Travel, the company provides travel accommodations services for professionals with "last-minute" needs, including lawyers, bankers, and advertising executives. Ovation's website offers tools for travelers and travel managers to research, book, track, and manage arrangements. The firm also runs a meeting and special events planning division as well as offers leisure travel booking services. The company boasts more than 90 locations in the US, and internationally, it maintains affiliations with travel agencies in more than 80 countries.
Strengthening its presence in New England, Ovation in 2010 acquired Commonwealth Travel Advisors, a Boston-based travel management firm. Commonwealth Travel Advisors operates two offices in Massachusetts and caters to both leisure and business travelers.
Also in 2010 Ovation was awarded a contract worth nearly $60,000 from the US State Department to lease the company's facilities in Virginia. – less
