Embracing the Connections formula, we design bespoke, luxury B2B events to help achieve the core objectives for both the tourist board, as well as the private sector.
Each event is designed to open your destination to the finest agencies from around the world, and to encourage senior decision makers to fully immerse themselves and experience the destination first hand, whilst delivering lucrative opportunities to your suppliers.
Over 40 of the world’s leading agencies will visit and spend time in your destination with the power to deliver hundreds of thousands of dollars to your destination in travel spend.
As the host destination, you will have the opportunity to:
- Welcome exceptional international and domestic buyers to your city, allowing a full destination immersion
- Showcase the destination in its full glory
- Recommend locations for the event to reveal the very best the region has to offer
- Have input into the recruitment process of the buyers
- Attend the full event, having one to one meetings with the buyers
- Hosted registration for all meetings and events
- Speaking opportunities, including welcoming and fare-welling the delegation
- Opportunity to provide welcome and/or turn down amenities to buyers
“We’re thrilled with the Connections platform for Californian luxury travel because, it’s one thing to talk about California when you’re overseas to these clients, but it’s really a promise fulfilled when they’re experiencing it first hand. That’s what Connections brings to us.”
Caroline Beteta, President & CEO Visit California

“Connections was an amazing opportunity for our unique destination. With its creative designed formula, we were able to attract a great Senior buying audience to experience our beautiful Ecuador first hand. Nothing beats this opportunity! This event has been a catalyst for Quito to truly grow in the Meetings and Incentive industry with tangible results.”
Norma Bock, Managing Director, Quito Turismo
"Connections Way is very unique and authentic. What’s effective for us is making long lasting relationships, and this is a very strong point for Connections and the experience you provide. We think this very valuable for Tokyo as we’re in the development stage of the luxury market. It is still new for us. We want to make strong relationships with the right people which is why we decided to bring Connections to Tokyo. "
Mr Masashi Imai, Manager, Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau
“I just want to say thank you one more time. The experience was wonderful and I’m already working with Becky from Visit Napa Valley for a 100 person birthday party in October. I also came home and booked the Inn at Pelican Hill from Newport Beach meeting and I’m also placing clients at either Caramel Valley Ranch or Post Ranch Inn. We also contacted DuVine Cycling. So thank you!!!”
