Hosts Global has added 70 new destinations to its portfolio.
The expansion includes Hosts Global’s Alliance of DMCs and its current portfolio of Hosts Global Destinations.
The company reports that with the increase in vaccines and travel destinations continuing to reopen, MICE planners are “confidently pencilling in group events again.” It also says that from the start of the pandemic, it has worked on reconfiguring its global event solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of clients. The portfolio expansion is just the first of Hosts’ new developments to meet this resurgence.
“Groups are excited to gather again and we’re ready with new places, new members, and new possibilities,” said Marty MacKay, Hosts Global’s president, alliance events and operations. “The DMCs in our Hosts Global Alliance are not just destination experts, they all deliver fresh perspectives and the ferocious creativity Hosts Global has become known for.”
Since transforming from USA Hosts to Hosts Global in 2011, the company has expanded significantly. It also continues to innovate through industry-leading initiatives.
“Though travel was on pause, Hosts was not,” said Jennifer Patino, CEO, Hosts Global. “The meetings and events industry is starting to see a significant rebound in group business requests. This is just the beginning—not just for the industry, but for us. We’re setting the stage for more big news to come.”
