Global DMC Partners Adds CTI Incentives & Events to Bring Clients the Best of Italy

Global DMC Partners, the leading global network of destination management companies (DMCs), has announced the latest addition to its exclusive collection of nearly 70 independently-owned DMCs with the addition of CTI Incentives & Events, based in Italy.

Founded in 2006, CTI is a tight-knit, full-service DMC with combined team experience of more than 20 years in the field. Covering the whole of Italy, they specialize in destinations including Rome, Milan, Venice, Florence & Tuscany, Sicily, Sardinia, Lake Maggiore, and Puglia.

“They are the perfect partner to work with in showcasing the many colors of Italy, from the rolling green hills of Tuscany to the bright blue sea surrounding Sardinia,” said Global DMC Partners President Catherine Chaulet. “We know that we can expect precise design, unique Italian experiences, meticulous planning and flawless execution from their knowledgeable and skilled team every time.”

According to Global DMC Partners’ 2019 Global Destination Index, which was released in October 2019, Italy was a ranked as the fourth most popular incentive destination in 2019 and is projected to be a top 10 incentive destination for 2020.  Based on data collected from nearly 7,000 meeting and incentive programs in over 500 destinations, the index presents the most popular meeting and incentive destinations around the world for 2019 and global markets that are already trending for 2020 MICE programs.  

“Italy – unlike most countries – is divided into 20 regions which are each so different in culture, landscapes, and food,” said Paolo Teruzzi, owner of CTI. “So, anything you can think of, we have got it! We are always thinking ‘outside the box’ and aim to exceed our clients’ expectations.”

Each new partner in the network is handpicked by the executive team at Global DMC Partners and offers extensive local knowledge, creative ideas, established experience and performance, and advocacy of the industry’s highest standards. Regardless of the destination, members are committed to working together to drive excellence and to guarantee that each client receives the same level of quality service. 

Teruzzi added, “We believe that what a strong group of companies can accomplish is much larger and far greater than what we could achieve individually, so we are very proud to be a part of Global DMC Partners’ dynamic and experienced team.”
