Roberts Event Group at IMEX America

Rob CarachiloRoberts' News that Caught our Eye

Roberts Event Group, a Hosts Global Member, had the thrilling opportunity to attend IMEX America in Las Vegas again this year. Meeting with colleagues, clients and vendors from around the globe, here are our best take aways:

1- International Visitor interest in Philadelphia continues to be on the rise. Our many appointment slots were filled with Italian, German, and Dutch meeting and conference organizers who want to begin pitching Philadelphia as their new American destination.

2- Along with the first point, we realized that Philadelphia as a world heritage city is one of America’s best kept secrets for International groups. We are the perfect size, walkable city for meeting and group travel to have an extended stay.

3- Experiential tourism continues to be in high demand. Everyone continues to seek special moments, social-media worthy photo ops, and events that make a lasting impression.

4- Destination Management Companies continue to evolve to the needs of clients from around the world. Sometimes we source, sometimes we execute on already sourced plans. No matter the need, Destination Management Companies stand by to deliver high-value results that take the risk of traveling to a new city.
