Global DMC Partners And Equilibrium Group Call Upon the Travel Industry to Join in Hurricane Dorian Relief for The Bahamas

Global DMC Partners and its DMC partner in the Bahamas, Equilibrium Group, are organizing efforts both at IMEX America and online to collect and provide necessary relief items to those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.

“Hurricane Dorian has devastated much of the Bahamas,” said Global DMC Partners President and CEO Catherine Chaulet. “As with any natural disaster, we want to do all we can to provide assistance, resources and donations to those affected by this terrible tragedy.”

“Our team and family in the Bahamas are strong and resilient, and with your help, we can make the road to recovery a bit easier. Together, we are #Bahamasstrong,” said Equilibrium Group President Marc Silverstone.

Drop Off at IMEX America

At IMEX America, taking place from September 10-12 in Las Vegas, Global DMC Partners will provide collection bins at booth #A3013. All IMEX attendees and exhibitors are invited to pack and bring any of the following items or consider purchasing supplies locally in Las Vegas:

  • Toiletries (un-opened hotel toiletries are welcome)
  • Hygiene items
  • Can openers
  • Mosquito spray
  • Sunscreen
  • Diapers
  • Baby Formula
  • First aid items
  • Flashlights
  • Batteries
  • Tools
  • Candles
  • New bedding
  • New clothing
  • New shoes

Items will be shipped directly from the tradeshow to Equilibrium Group's offices in Davie, Fla.

Supplies may also be sent directly to Equilibrium Group:

As most airports in the affected areas of the Bahamas are currently closed, the only way items can be delivered at this time is via boat or helicopter. Travel providers with boat or helicopter service in South Florida are urgently needed to provide assistance in delivering these goods from Florida to the islands and are encouraged to contact Global DMC Partners or Equilibrium Group directly.

Online Donations

In addition to collecting items at IMEX America, Equilibrium Group has started a GoFundMe page where 100 percent of donations will go to help the people of the Bahamas. Equilibrium’s goal is to raise at least $15,000. To make a donation online, please visit
