Incentive Travel Exchange Enriches the Total Guest Experience with New Networking Activities

NEW YORK (February 2, 2017) ─ Buyers and suppliers who plan to attend Questex Travel Group’s 12th annual Incentive Travel Exchange (ITE) event April 23-26, 2017 at The Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay can look forward to a veritable feast of opportunity thanks to a newly enhanced networking program.

The event, held in partnership with SITE, brings together pre-qualified, top-producing North American buyers and global travel suppliers for prearranged, one-to-one meetings in private suites, high-caliber networking, and educational opportunities. 

According to Questex Travel Group’s executive vice president, John McMahon, they plan to up that ante by incorporating additional networking opportunities that will give attendees an even better ROI for their participation.

“The activities planned for this year’s event will offer our attendees, both suppliers and buyers, the most productive event possible, while still allowing them the opportunity to experience some of Vegas’s more exciting sights and sounds,” said McMahon. “Pound for pound, no other event will offer visitors this much of a return for two days’ worth of work.” 

Activities will begin on opening night, April 23rd, with an icebreaker welcome reception in the Skyfall Lounge at the top of The Delano, hosted by MGM Resorts, followed by helicopter rides over the Las Vegas Strip provided by Maverick Aviation. Team building will take place on night two at Brooklyn Bowl, the famed New York music venue and hot spot, now at The LINQ Promenade. Finally, guests will bid farewell amid exquisite cuisine prepared by Smith & Wollensky, followed by the acclaimed Legends in Concert tribute show at the Flamingo Casino & Hotel.

The hosted buyer program gives premium meeting and incentive travel buyers the opportunity to maximize their time during focused meetings with leading incentive travel suppliers and networking with industry colleagues. Buyers represent key incentive purchasing sectors including corporate incentive buyers and incentive companies, as well as meeting planners.

Suppliers will include cruise lines, hotels, resorts, spas, tour operators, destination management companies, and some of the most sought-after incentive destinations across the globe.
