VistaJet Presents Exceptional Travel Experiences for The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller
Three highly personalized programs for art lovers to enhance the most significant philanthropic auction ever presented
LONDON, Feb. 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VistaJet, the first and only global private aviation company, showcases today three exclusive experiences to enrich the exhibitions and global tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller, the most valuable auction of a private collection entirely dedicated to raising funds for philanthropic causes.
Following the unveiling of early highlights in Hong Kong last November, the global public tour will move to London (February 21 - March 8), Paris (March 16 - 21), Beijing (April 6 - 7), Los Angeles (April 6 - 12) and Shanghai (April 10 - 11), ahead of the final exhibition in New York at Christie's Rockefeller Center from April 28 until the sale on May 7 - 11. With each stop on the pre-sale tour, additional works of art and objects will be revealed.
With 80% of customers regularly investing in art, VistaJet flies some of the world's most prominent collectors. Art has always integrated organically into the brand and as the company continuously strives to provide exceptional and curated experiences for members, anytime and anywhere, VistaJet's three fully customizable The Art of Flying Experiences* will offer exclusive previews, private dinners, lectures and talks, enriching their engagement with the Rockefeller pieces.
The World of Art Experience will offer customers the opportunity to travel to all of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibitions on-board VistaJet for a private tour of the emblematic collection at each location. By booking this multi-leg journey, VistaJet will transport clients and their art at no additional cost on flights anytime, anywhere** and the experience will also include a year-long membership*** to The Cultivist, the global arts club.
The Direct Experience will offer any guest flying with VistaJet to any of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibitions in London, Paris, Beijing, Shanghai, Los Angeles or New York, an invitation to receive a complimentary membership to VistaJet Direct worth $10,000. The Direct membership gives clients access to available VistaJet private flights at special rates from any mobile device, through the world's first end-to-end business jet app.
The third exclusive opportunity, The Rockefeller Experience , will allow up to 10 guests traveling with VistaJet on one of its iconic silver and red jets to New York, a rare opportunity for a behind the scenes private discovery tour of Kykuit, the historical National Trust landmark of the Rockefeller Estate in Pocantico Hills, before enjoying a Rockefeller-inspired multi-taste feast at an exclusive Upstate New York venue. Guests will then be invited for a personal tour of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller exhibition in New York, and to view the live auction at Christie's New York with leading art experts.
"The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller is a unique collection of the finest works of art and objects," said Nina Flohr of VistaJet. "The fact that 100% of the proceeds from the auction of the collection will be donated to charities worldwide is a remarkable philanthropic effort. We fully support the Rockefellers' commitment to giving back, and our sponsorship is VistaJet's way to facilitate and contribute to the exhibitions, auctions, and ultimately, the Rockefeller family's charitable mission. We are very proud to support their initiative as the key global partner."
The global nature of the auction and exhibitions aligns seamlessly with the VistaJet brand and its global reach. With a fleet of over 70 super-mid and long range identically designed aircraft, VistaJet guarantees availability within 24 hours to its customers, no matter where in the world they are based. The sponsorship of such a landmark collection is a way for VistaJet to support not only the arts, but David and Peggy Rockefeller's philanthropic endeavours.
Sales of The Collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller will be conducted in keeping with David Rockefeller's pledge to direct the majority of his wealth to philanthropy. All the Estate proceeds will be donated to charities, directly benefiting the philanthropic missions that have been maintained by the family for decades.

Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgon Carbon Corporation today announced a global price increase, effective February 1, 2019, where contracts permit, on all activated carbon products and related equipment due to a continued escalation in raw material costs and transportation expenses.

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29 | Pressemelding
WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
