Global DMC Partners Expands in the Caribbean and Central America

Global DMC Partners, the largest global network of destination management companies (DMCs), is pleased to announce the addition of Sunlinc and Panama Journeys to their elite partnership of nearly 70 independently-owned DMCs.

Established in 1983, Sunlinc features full-service DMC operations in the West Indies’ most sought-after destinations, including Barbados, St. Kitts, Nevis, Antigua, Grenada, Anguilla and Canouan, and maintains an international marketing office in Florida. The company, which has built its reputation for understanding the needs of even the most demanding international clientele, prides itself on offering spectacularly innovative events while incorporating some of the most fascinating and unique venues in the Caribbean.

Robyn Parris, Director of Group Sales & Special Projects at Sunlinc said, “After a number of years of working with the GDP team, we are delighted to make it official and join the GDP family.”

“We are confident that Sunlinc’s unmatched expertise in the Caribbean, as well as the company’s established relationships with hotels and suppliers in the region, will be a great asset to our clients,” said Global DMC Partners President Catherine Chaulet. “Like Global DMC Partners, Sunlinc is known as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for meeting planners seeking the very best in the West Indies.”

Panama Journeys is a full-service DMC for upscale FIT and MICE groups. A sister company of Global DMC Partners’ current member, Colombian Journeys, Panama Journeys has deliberately remained a small, almost entirely family-run DMC, with an increased focused on what clients need in terms of personal attention, service and value.

“With some of the region’s best infrastructure as well as easy access to major airports in the U.S. and beyond, it should come as no surprise that Panama has become one of the most sought-after destinations for meetings and incentives,” said Chaulet. “We are thrilled to have solidified this relationship and look forward to offering our clients a range of new experiences, from discovering virgin rainforest to marveling in the splendor of the Panama Canal.”

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