Latin America Meeting and Incentive Travel Exchange Kicks Off in Costa Rica




The first Latin America Meeting and Incentive Travel Exchange (LAMITE) event launched yesterday at the Real InterContinental San Jose in Costa Rica. (The event is produced by Questex Travel Group, the parent company of International Meetings Review.) 

LAMITE, held in partnership with SITE, the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence, brings together top-producing, Latin America-based meeting and incentive buyers with leading global suppliers for two-and-a-half days of exclusive networking opportunities and prescheduled one-to-one meetings in private suites.

The event kicked off with a familiarization trip for buyers through Costa Rica’s rain forest via an aerial tram, presented by ACTUA Vesatours.

Marilyn McHugh, Questex Travel Group’s vice president of global events, said a key objective for the event is to “bring meetings and incentives industry professionals together for optimal business networking by keeping meetings intimate and interactive.” 

“LAMITE is the ideal venue for global suppliers looking to grow their meetings and incentives business in the Latin American marketplace,” she said. “Our event portfolio is the only one that offers one-to-one meetings in the privacy of luxury suites, providing tremendous value to suppliers.”

Suppliers at the event represent cruise lines, tour operators, destination management companies and sought-after incentive destinations, hotels, resorts and spas across the globe. 

Sponsors include ACTUA DMC, Aruba Convention Bureau, Club Med, Copa Airlines, Costa Rica Convention Bureau, Costa Rica Hotel Association, Costa Rica Tourism Board, Enjoy Hotel Group, El Mangroove by Enjoy Hotels, Execubrand, Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau, InterContinental Hotels Group, MASCO Meeting & Show Company, Maui Jim Sunglasses, Melia Hotels International, Mice Media LATAM, Peace Lodge, Real InterContinental San Jose, Society for Incentive Travel Excellence, The Springs Resort and Spa and Visit Scotland.
