Global DMC Partners Adds Seven New Destinations and Four New Partners

Global DMC Partners, the meeting professional’s one worldwide solution for global event success, reveals four new vetted Destination Management Companies (DMCs) that have been selected to join the exclusive partnership. Global DMC Partners now serves the following seven locations around the world: Aruba; Croatia; Curacao; Montreal, Canada; Puerto Rico; Quebec, Canada; and San Antonio, TX.  New partnerships were forged with four DMCs: Adria Events (Croatia), Dragonfly Adventures (Puerto Rico), Eco Destination Management (Aruba and Curacao), and Zeste Incentive (Montreal and Quebec, Canada).  Current Global DMC Partners member, iDesignMeetings, recently expanded their representation from Houston and Dallas, to include San Antonio, TX, rounding out the seventh new destination.

The growth of Global DMC Partners and the addition of these new DMCs demonstrates Global DMC Partners’ focus on meeting customer needs and desires for more exotic, but safe meeting destinations around the globe.

“One of our main priorities is to work with DMCs with the best local connections and track records,” says President of Global DMC Partners, Catherine Chaulet. “That way, every time a customer works with Global DMC Partners, we can ensure they receive top notch service and access to new destinations, while ensuring creative, local elements are always incorporated into programs.”

Global DMC Partners’ addition of Zeste Incentive adds Canada to their repertoire and rounds out their representation in North America with strong DMC representation in Canada, Mexico and the United States. Montreal, Quebec and San Antonio, TX were added to the network to present more short-haul destination options to US customers.

Aruba, Curacao and Puerto Rico have seen increasing demand, especially for incentive programs and companies who have the desire to bring their groups and meetings to rarer, tropical locations that are still very safe and appealing. Puerto Rico is also attractive due to the fact that US citizens do not need a passport to travel there and the currency is the US dollar.

Croatia has recently become an emerging market for meetings and incentives for similar reasons.Located only two hours away from major European hubs, Croatia has been an especially appealing location for European groups for quite some time, and it’s now emerging into a popular destination for US groups. It is seen as a unique but safe destination with good value and many innovative opportunities.

Chaulet added, “One of the ways we can continue our global advocacy is by arming our clients with more expert resources in more destinations around the globe. For that reason, we are thrilled to present our clients with this additional DMC support in extraordinary destinations throughout the Caribbean, Europe and North America.”
