WORLD – A publishing company has launched a series of networking events for the meetings and events market.
Connections Meetings follows on the heels of Connections Luxury with invited buyers and sellers in the MICE sector given the chance to develop business relationship in ‘exclusive’ environments.
The first Connections Meetings event will take place at the Conrad Algarve on 9-11 December, with events planned for Latin America and Spain in 2016.
Connections Luxury and Connections Meetings are part of the Travel Weekly Group portfolio.
Micaela Giacobbe (pictured), director of commercial events at Connections, said: “Connections involves just 30-40 meeting owners and planners from key and growing markets across the globe and 30-40 selected suppliers.
“We are delighted to be extending the highly successful Connections Luxury format to the MICE sector, and look forward to helping senior MICE buyers and executives build effective and long-lasting relationships.”
Alison Styles, vice-president sales and marketing EMEA, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, said: “Connections Luxury provides the right environment and the right audience to create memories and build lasting relationships. Connections Luxury is the most productive business event I have attended throughout my career and I look forward to a long-term partnership with Micaela and her team.”
