Meetings Mean Business Names New Co-Chair




The Meetings Mean Business Coalition (MMBC) has selected Trina Camacho-London, vice president of global group sales at Hyatt Hotels Corporation, as its next co-chair. Camacho-London will join Julie Coker Graham, president and CEO of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB), in leading more than 60 organizations from across the meetings and travel industry to advocate the value of conferences, conventions, trade shows, exhibitions and incentive travel.

Camacho-London brings to the role more than 25 years of experience in corporate sales for Hyatt. Like Coker Graham, she has risen through the ranks at Hyatt and continues to be recognized for her talent and positive contributions to the industry. 

Under their stewardship, MMBC said it will intensify efforts to engage leaders outside of the meetings and travel industry and recruit third-party advocates as champions for the industry’s value. This includes growing participation in Global Meetings Industry Day, which earlier this year, was observed in 41 countries across six continents.   
 
Camacho-London will assume the leadership position currently held by Paul Van Deventer on January 1, 2019. Van Deventer, president and CEO of Meeting Professionals International, has co-chaired the coalition since January 1, 2017. 
 
Camacho-London will work closely with Van Deventer and Coker Graham beginning this summer, to advance the strategy and direction of MMBC.
