Ovation Global DMC expanding into new horizons

New strategic partners in a number of emerging destinations.

GENEVA – Ovation Global DMC, continues to live up to the expectations of its international client base by making the most out of every destination. The world’s leading services provider and incoming event organiser, has formed new strategic partnerships in the following emerging meetings & events markets: Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Kazakhstan, Nepal/Tibet/Bhutan, Peru, Rwanda & East Africa.

As the business grows, key actors need to be ahead of the game and keep evolving in order to meet the ever changing needs of their customers. Ovation Global DMC has been taking steps towards that direction with these new partnerships, which aim to further strengthen the company’s leading positioning within the European, Asian Latin American and African meetings industry markets.

Commenting on the recent developments, Hugo Slimbrouck, Director of Strategic Partnerships of Ovation Global DMC stated: “I’m excited to add these destinations to our portfolio. Working with strategic partners in more than 50 destinations around the globe brings great value to our corporate and third party clients. All of these are great and emerging meeting, conference and incentive destinations. On top of this, our alliance with the DMC Network adds another 30 DMC partners in the USA, Canada and the Caribbean, making it the largest in the world”.

This expansion comes as a result of the Ovation Strategic Partner Programme, launched in July 2009. The programme was introduced to provide DMC services to corporate, association and agency clients at locations where Ovation currently did not have a wholly owned office. Ovation Strategic Partners are, typically, the leading DMC in a destination and are selected according to strict criteria including industry reputation and legacy, operational excellence and ability to deliver a truly insightful DMC service beyond mere logistics and tactical delivery.

Drawing on the experience of an expert local management team, these new partners will operate high touch incentive and corporate meeting programmes for international clients. As industry leaders, Ovation Global DMC plays a key role in the meetings and events world.
