Mountain View, CA – Call of the Wild has been selected as a winner of British Airways Business Opportunity Grant.

For its Business Opportunity Grant program, British Airways hand selected the winning companies primarily based on how a year's worth of business travel and face to face meetings, along with other valuable business support, would positively impact each business, its growth and ability to meet objectives for 2010.

The grant includes airfare for 10 round-trip Club World business class flights, five free global shipments with British Airways World Cargo, $1,000 toward hotel accommodations at Courtyard by Marriott, five Regus Businessworld Gold Cards offering access to its business lounges worldwide, a Canon MX860 Printer, and three face-to-face business introductions through ExeConnect.

“Call of the Wild is excited to be honored by British Airways and is a proud recipient of this grant. We are already in touch with potential partners around the globe about the ability to meet face to face in 2010 and plan for 2011 and beyond,” shared Kate Reid, Director of Call of the Wild. “In the Adventure Travel Industry, knowing your partners well is critical to your success. The unplanned always happens and strong partners allow us to manage our client logistics with much more ease.”

Call of the Wild entered the contest after learning about in the Wall Street Journal. After researching further online, it was decided the contest was relevant enough to support Call of the Wild’s goals in 2010.
