WATA

“This will be my first time attendance.  I am glad to participate as I strongly believe in the model presented by Connections to put together buyers and suppliers in a way that moments together will be unforgettable and will allow long standing relationships. Connections is, in my opinion, the best alternative to the big trade shows.”

Christine Fournier, Secrétaire Général

WATA is a non-profit association, established in 1949 in Switzerland.

In September 2016 we finalized a total rebranding of our network to form a new dynamic Global Network inspired by WATA, WORLD OF INCENTIVES & GONDWANA DMCs, three long-established (totaling 100 years of existence and experience) and renowned names in our industry.

The new Global WATA specializes in a myriad of activities ranging from tailor-made Luxury leisure groups and Fits to Incentives, Meeting, Congress and Events in more than 50 destinations worldwide.

WATA is best described as a network of exclusive DMC’s that bring the best of their destination to their customers.

With a couple of exceptions, the common denominator could be defined as:

  • Well established local independent companies;
  • Owner managed;
  • Locally based at the destination they cover with their services;
  • Adhering to high ethical standards;
  • Enjoying an excellent reputation;
  • Among the leader DMC’s in terms of quality and creativity in their destination;
  • Dedicated to tailor made travel solutions for MICE and Luxury Groups & Fits

LUXURY represents a large segment into our network for discerning travellers who expect the highest level of luxury.  Each trip is tailored to individual interests and travel preferences, personal levels of energy and desired schedule.

Our DMCs will be your very local experts to arrange up-scale travels for your most demanding clientele.
