GLOBAL ACCESS – Global Access is a complimentary visitor incentive offering for FIT and group markets. Visitors receive an exclusive invitation from their travel advisor or hotel concierge, which is then redeemed at each center for a Global Access Card. The Card entitles the visitor to special offers, amenities and experiences offered by participating retailers and restaurants at each district. Luxe experiences include complimentary champagne, hotel package delivery, hotel room fittings, alterations, beauty consultations and personal stylist sessions. Plus, a purchase of $1,000 entitles customers to a $50 gift card from one of the center’s premier, fine dining establishments.
In addition, each project offers complimentary valet parking or car service to and from nearby hotels. Since both projects support local arts and cultural communities, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta also offers Global Access visitors two complimentary admissions to the Michael C. Carlos Museum Emory University, as a gift with purchase, while River Oaks District in Houston offers two complimentary admissions to The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
