In spite of the impact of COVID-19, a new DMC group is growing in Latin America
MIAMI BEACH, FL, August 16, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — LatinPlus, a group of independent destination management companies specializing in Latin America’s top destinations for meetings and events, welcomes ECT MICE DMC from the Dominican Republic to the group.
“It is particularly important for us to have a strong partner in our native Dominican Republic,” said Patricia Perez-Sahin, who is the founder at LatinPlus DMC, and started her career in the meetings industry at the helm of the Dominican Republic Tourism Board in Chicago. “ECT MICE DMC enjoys an impeccable reputation within the DR as well as in the rest of the world. I’ve always had such a great experience working with Stephane Satin when he was one of many DMC partners in the DR. The fact that most of the team remains intact after all these years speaks volumes about their leadership, strong values and their experience working together as a cohesive team.”
ECT MICE DMC was the first DMC to open its doors in the Dominican Republic back in 1994, long before the development of Punta Cana for meetings and incentives. Because of their history as pioneers in the destination, they have always relied on their creativity to design and deliver unique experiences for their clients, far beyond the traditional “Sun and Fun” excursions and the “all inclusive” experience. Furthermore, ECT MICE DMC operations are not limited to Punta Cana; from their headquarters in Samana they can service the entire country.
“We are excited to represent a DMC that focuses on delivering sustainable experiences and positive impacts within various communities in our beloved DR,” said Maura Dominguez-Zhang, Managing Partner.
LatinPlus DMC Group, a women and minority owned business has quickly grown to Panama, Costa Rica and now present in the Dominican Republic, in spite of the negative impact COVID-19 for the Meetings and Incentive Industry. Even in the most difficult times, there are always opportunities. Our DMC clients are both realistic and optimistic about the future and this is the perfect time rethink your business and to implement an effective and long term Marketing Strategy.
