And so it was, that following a superb insight trip, we moved on to IMEX Vegas. IMEX America has been running for a good few years now and attracts more than 3,000 Exhibitors from every sector of the global meetings industry. The goal is to match buyers with suppliers that can do business together.
For me, it was three crammed days of meetings with hoteliers, attractions, business executives – and all creating a wealth of ideas about future trips and locations for our CCD clients. To name a few, I met with World Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel from Orlando, the Bourbon New Orleans Hotel Collection, Ritz Carlton Abu Dhabi, Viceroy Chicago, Business Events Toronto, Accorhotels Greater China, and Four Seasons Las Vegas.
My real ‘take-away’ from this superb event is that there are some exceptional venues popping up around the globe at the minute and that event professionals like us will be working hard to ensure we constantly have our finger on the pulse.
I’m particularly keen to share some of my recent insights with the pharmaceutical sector, or those who are in investment banking etc, and looking for high-end meeting locations or superb incentive travel.
