Global DMC Partners Reveals Location of 2024 Connection: Magical Punta de Mita, Mexico

Following the overwhelming success of its 2023 Connection in Dubai, GDP’s 10th annual conference will be held at the Conrad Punta de Mita, June 6-9

Returning for its tenth year, Global DMC Partners’ Connection, one of the most educational, collaborative and exclusive global conferences in the meetings, events and incentives industry, will be held June 6-9, 2024, at the newly debuted Conrad Punta de Mita. Co-hosted this year by Tropical Incentives, a Global DMC Partner, Connection is a true ‘who’s who’ of the industry’s best and brightest, drawing leading, top-of-their-field meeting and event professionals from around the world to discuss the current global outlook and what it means for the industry, to share insights and best practices and, most importantly, to build and foster relationships through networking and education.  

“We are delighted to celebrate our milestone 10th anniversary in such a sought-after destination as Punta de Mita,” said Global DMC Partners President and CEO Catherine Chaulet. “We chose this year’s location, the award-winning Conrad Punta de Mita, to showcase the incredible opportunities available for meetings, events and incentive programs of all sizes. For many it will be an exclusive ‘first look’ of the property, which recently opened in 2020, and we can’t wait for attendees to experience the warm, authentic Mexican hospitality, vibrant, cultural activities and unparalleled amenities this exciting new resort destination has to offer.”

One of the highlights of the Connection program will be one-on-one appointments for meeting planners to discuss business with DMCs and other industry suppliers.  Attendees can register for up to six 15-minute appointments each day with over 50 worldwide DMCs, an ideal opportunity to discuss upcoming program needs, to learn about destinations and local offerings, to hear what is new around the world and to discover places or ideas that may not have been considered in the past. Additionally, attendees will attend interactive general sessions about the latest trends and discuss timely topics such as AI and technology, accessibility, diversity and inclusion, sustainability, attendance trends, budgeting, contract negotiations and more. Continuing Education credits will be awarded for attendance at business sessions.

The event is for planners who manage global meetings, events or incentives and is exclusively by invitation-only. For consideration or more information, please email info@globaldmcpartners.com or reach out to your dedicated Global DMC Partners Sales Advisor.
