Our partners and customers around the world They are coming out of very tough times and want to know which markets are not only safe but also ready for the collection They can make informed decisions about future planning,” President and CEO of Global DMC Partners said, Catherine Chollet.
Survey data shows that in 2021, planners in Europe remained regional for their programs, and the same was true for clients in the United States who hold meetings within the country or in Mexico and the Caribbean.
However, Catherine Chollet explains, looking at the regions of interest for 2022, “it’s clear that planners are already starting to look for meetings and events outside of their regions. This is a great sign that business is starting to recover and the world is becoming more accessible again.”
