The 2017 event will be held for the first time in April, in an effort to better accommodate both buyer and suppliers’ heavy travel schedules, as the event has taken place in March for the past two years.

ITE brings together high-volume incentive buyers based in North America and sought-after global travel suppliers including hotels, resorts, spas, cruise lines, tour operators and destination management companies.

The 2016 ITE program was extremely successful with multiple networking opportunities and literally thousands of appointments, said meetings group director Kirk Lewis. “This year’s event provided participating suppliers and buyers nearly 3,000 quality one-on-one appointments,” said Lewis. “We look forward to an even bigger splash in 2017.”

Suppliers and buyers alike praised the event’s interactive format and focused one-to-one meetings held in private suites. 

"It was my first time participating in ITE and I will do it again in a heartbeat,” said Rosalie Floros, Sirata Beach Resort sales manager.  “I was able to bid on pieces of business that I might not otherwise have had the opportunity to.”

Similar praise was offered by The St. Regis New York group sales manager Maureen Sullivan. “This was my first ITE and I must say I was blown away. I cannot wait to attend again in 2017.”

“We have participated in ITE for two years and have found it to be a hidden gem within the MICE industry, yielding ROI for our hotels,” said Lindsey Gift Silver, regional director of sales, The Peninsula Hotels. “The intimate setting for the appointments provides a professional and relaxed environment to discuss business and build on our relationships.”

HelmsBriscoe manager, global accounts Veronica D. Chinn said, “I loved the diversity and quality of the venues and suppliers in attendance. The opportunity to meet with vendors in a relaxed and comfortable environment was unique and an excellent change from the norm.”
