Pacific World showcase portfolio of destinations at IMEX U.S.

Pacific World
, have confirmed that they will be representing a number of destinations at IMEX America, in light of the Incentive Research Foundation findings, which have identified that 44% of meeting and incentives planners have selected Europe (31%) and Asia (13%) as destinations for outbound incentive travel.

The global DMC, Event Management and PCO organization have announced that destination representatives will be present at IMEX America to inform attendees of the opportunities available in locations including China, India, Hong Kong, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Greece, Scotland, Portugal, Spain, France, Monaco, England, Dubai, Oman and South Africa.

Herve Joseph-Antoine, Global Managing Director, commented, “Europe has always been a highly sought after destination for meeting planners, especially from the U.S. We are continually coordinating tailored incentive trips throughout the year. The region has so much to offer, take for example; Spain or France. Both identified as top destinations on the ICCA Rankings. There is always something new and trendy going on in Europe.

“Monaco has also proven to be an attractive selection for U.S. and UK meeting planners, partly due to the flexible access options the county offers and also due to the vast variety of luxury accommodation available there. We recently organised a programme in Monte Carlo for 1,000 delegates, travelling from 60 countries. Our programme included entertainment, management of all logistics for delegates and press, including 650 helicopter transfers.

“Asia is also permanently providing a strong source of incentive destinations for exploration, take for example Vietnam. They have been experiencing a big boom in inbound business as the location provides a vast array of unspoiled destinations such as Phu Quoc Island, which is readily available for MICE groups. China also offers new MICE destinations, as the country has seen an exponential increase in the economy, which has been reflected in the amount of infrastructure further developed to accommodate the growing demand for meetings and incentives there”.

Joseph-Antoine concludes, “Since our launch as a Global DMC in November 2011, we have implemented an aggressive expansion plan which has seen a number of new destinations being added to our portfolio from across Europe and Middle East. What sets us apart from other DMC’s is our passion and drive to deliver engaging activities that allow attendees to interact with the culture and learn from local experiences.”

Following their worldwide rebranding in November 2011, Pacific World as a global brand is recognised for delivering operational excellence, creativity and best-in-class customer service across the world. Through working closely with local governments and convention centres, the global MICE company currently delivers event solutions in over 25 countries including China, India, Hong Kong, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Greece, Scotland, Portugal, Spain, Southern Africa, France, Monaco and England.
