Stadium Series East Batted 1.000 for MICE Industry’s Finest




stadium series

Questex Travel Group’s second go at the Stadium Series, the industry’s first MICE event offering private meetings in baseball stadium suites, took their event to new heights at Yankee Stadium yesterday.  

As the pioneer of the private, one-to-one appointment concept, the creators of the Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchanges, took the initial chance on this concept back in November of 2016, and based on its success, organized yesterday’s event, as well as a future Stadium Series on November 8 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Anaheim, California.

The Stadium Series gathered a selection of pre-qualified Northeast U.S.-based meeting planners and incentive buyers for 533 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, cruise lines, tour operators, destination management companies, and other unique venues akin to the atypical stadium experience. 

The event opened with a valuable keynote address from former U.S. ambassador to Algeria, Indonesia and South Africa, Cameron R. Hume. In his presentation “The Use of Smart Power Strategy,” Hume leveraged his own experience to help attendees build better relationships through diplomacy.

One-to-one appointments ran throughout the one-day event, inclusive of an exceptional networking lunch, a behind-the-scenes tour of Yankee Stadium that included a visit to Monument Park, and ended with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and great prizes at the closing reception in the Delta SKY360° Suite. 

“This event continues to offer a winning platform for the MICE industry,” said John McMahon, executive vice president for the Questex Travel Group. “We appreciate all of the positive feedback we received yesterday and will continue moving this regional event around the country to pair buyers and suppliers together for the most productive experiences.”

The Stadium Series event brings together regional buyers and global suppliers for a day of one-to-one private, pre-scheduled appointments, networking receptions and meals, and a forward-thinking keynote speaker. Suppliers include hotels, resorts, cruise lines, destination management companies, and other unique meeting venues akin to the atypical stadium experience.
