GMITE Meets: Los Angeles Connects West Coast Planners & Suppliers




This past weekend, Questex Hospitality + Travel’s inaugural GMITE Meets: Los Angeles event brought together more than 125 West Coast travel planners and global suppliers responsible for meetings, incentive travel, conferences and events.

The two-day event, held February 19-21 at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, saw over 925 one-to-one meetings. It was also the backdrop for the launch of the company’s first Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchange event in Latin America, LAMITE, which will be held April 20-23, 2015, in Costa Rica. 

GMITE Meets: Los Angeles is the second in the GMITE Meets series following GMITE Meets: Site NY Metro event in New York and marks the series’ debut on the West Coast. GMITE’s flagship Incentive Travel Exchange (ITE), held annually in Las Vegas, is scheduled June 3-6, at THEhotel at Mandalay Bay. GMITE also produces Caribbean Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchange (CMITE), which will be held September 14-17 at The Cove Atlantis in the Bahamas.

Danielle Cirami-Gillis, global director of events and media, said a key objective for the GMITE Meets series is to bring MICE industry professionals together for optimal business networking and educational opportunities by keeping meetings efficient and interactive. “Our goal is to conduct smaller, hyper-efficient events that provide tremendous value yet allow busy, top-notch buyers to attend who may not afford the time to participate in our full, flagship event in Las Vegas,” she said. 

Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchanges, owned and managed by Questex Media Group LLC (the parent company of International Meetings Review), are composed of invitation-only, appointment-based events catering exclusively to the meetings, incentives, conferences and events market.
