Questex Travel Group does it again! As the pioneer of the private, one-to-one appointment concept, the creators of the Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchanges launched their first Stadium Series event on November 15th at Yankee Stadium.

The first of its kind, the Stadium Series gathered a selection of pre-qualified Northeast US-based meeting planners and incentive buyers for 460 one-to-one appointments with global travel suppliers in private luxury suites located on the SAP Suite Level at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York. Suppliers included hotels, resorts, tour operators, destination management companies, and other unique venues akin to the atypical stadium experience. 

The event opened with a poignant keynote address from national security contributor, journalist, professor, and former Secret Service agent, Evy Poumpouras. Her presentation “Analyzing Human Behavior to Elicit Information,” will help attendees learn how to become better negotiators and communicators to enhance their personal and business relations, make them more attractive and engaging speakers, and enable them to draw out the best in others.

One-to-one appointments ran throughout the one-day event, with an exceptional lunch break sponsored by Delta Air Lines complete with a sprawling field view, and photos for all next to  the 2009 World Series trophy in the Delta SKY360° Suite

The day capped off with a special behind-the-scenes tour of Yankee Stadium that included a walk down memory lane in the New York Yankees Museum presented by Bank of America, followed by cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and great prizes in the Hard Rock Cafe at Yankee Stadium. 

“This event marked a first step in what we expect to be a winning platform for the MICE industry,” said John McMahon, executive vice president for the Questex Travel Group. “We look forward to moving this regional event throughout the country and offering these unique experiences to attendees nationwide.”

A pillar of the GMITE brand, the Stadium Series has taken the one-to-one concept out of the noisy ballrooms and moved it into quiet, private suites, allowing suppliers the opportunity to conduct nearly a month’s worth of sales calls in just one day.
