This change in venue follows two years in the Bahamas, where the 2013 and 2014 programs were held at The Cove Atlantis. This year's event, held September 15-18, hosted 130 buyers and suppliers serving the Caribbean meeting and incentive market.
Danielle Cirami-Gillis, Questex global director of events and media, said that this year's event was particularly fruitful, attributing the success to “dynamic networking and the value of one-to-one meetings in private suites.”
Barbara Warren, sales manager for of The Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa, St. Maarten, praised the venue and destination and the event's “excellent networking opportunities.” Kimberly Allen, executive assistant at Benefitfocus Inc., said, that as a buyer, “the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with related buyers and helpful suppliers made this a very worthwhile use of my time. Having this experience and additional information will be extremely helpful in my three year plan for the group.”
