We’re now scheduling appointments for IMEX America!

Hello fabulous friends! I hope you’re enjoying these dog days of summer—although in Vegas, summer will last another two months…

Things are a little quiet at Destination Fabulous right now, but that’s only because this is the calm before the storm. With September approaching, we’re busy getting ready for IMEX America, America’s worldwide exhibition for incentive travel, meetings, and events being held September 10-12 at the Sands Expo Convention Center at The Venetian | The Palazzo, one of the world’s largest convention facilities right here in fabulous Las Vegas!

I cannot WAIT to meet with folks from all over the world as well as see some friendly, familiar Vegas faces. Destination Fabulous will be one of more than 3,000 companies from the global meetings industry representing 3,500 destinations from 150 countries. We will be located in booth A3121 with our friends at GPS Destinations along with Circa DMC, representing Arizona and Texas; Impact Destinations & Events, representing Northern California; NOLA DMC, representing New Orleans; Cititravel, representing Spain and Portugal; Swargo Events, representing New York City; and GATHER, representing Ireland.

So here’s how it works: IMEX America is appointment-based, and appointments are open NOW! Appointment times are available in half-hour increments from Tuesday, September 10 through Thursday, September 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. To make an appointment to meet with yours truly at Destination Fabulous and find out more about what we can do for you, all you have to do is login and sign up for a 30-minute appointment block via IMEX’s online appointment booking system!

As a destination management company, IMEX is basically our CES, or EDC, or what-have-you. Exhibitors include US domestic suppliers, global tourist offices and convention bureaus, major hotel companies, conference and exhibition centers, cruise lines, airlines, spa resorts, technology providers, event management specialists, and so many more. Regardless of whether your needs are large or small, THIS is the place to be for countless networking opportunities in the global meetings industry, as well as to see fresh ideas and garner new inspiration from industry experts and innovators. You’ll have the chance to foster new relationships, check in with industry friends, and talk about the different programs available for your choice destinations face-to-face with a real live human person instead of over the phone or by email.

Meetings and events professionals will have access to new venues in major cities around the world, the latest event tech providers, a free professional development series that includes keynote speakers and hands-on workshops, VIP receptions, and even an IMEX 5k run. To help better manage your time and ensure that you get some quality one-on-one face time with the folks you want to talk to the most (without having to waste time waiting in line), IMEX offers an online appointment booking system for attendees to schedule meetings directly with exhibitors. It is recommended that attendees book eight appointments per day (for a total of four hours) to make the most of the show and take advantage of the opportunity to explore new ideas and destinations.

Which leads me back to me! Destination Fabulous is the premiere destination management company in Las Vegas. We offer full end-to-end DMC services including event planning and design; activities, tours, and exclusive experiences; A-list entertainment and speakers; and transportation services and logistics.

We produce events large and small, from mega-conferences to incentive events to intimate dinner meetings. Our event planning team collectively has over 100 years of event experience, and we have produced more than 2,000 events in Las Vegas and all over the world.

Destination Fabulous can handle every aspect of your meeting, conference, event, or party, from venue and site selection to event design and production. We will customize your experience for your audience and your budget. We will also handle all of your transportation needs, from private jets and luxury limos to charter buses and shuttle services. Plus every event needs some entertainment, and we candeliver sought-after names in music, broadcast, movies, politics, business, and the arts right here in the Entertainment Capital of the World!

We also offer a variety of additional activities and tours for your team to enjoy during their Las Vegas visit: helicopter tours of the Grand Canyon and the Strip, golf outings, exotic car racing, guided foodie tours, museums, shows…you can do anything in Vegas, and we can make it happen.

To find out more about what we can do for you, book an appointment during IMEX America at booth A3121 to learn more about the variety of services we provide, the many ways we can make your event singularly unique, and some of our creative approaches to corporate events—because what happens in Vegas should be fabulous!

I look forward to seeing your smiling faces there!

Another thing I’m looking forward to in September after IMEX is the celebration of our five-year anniversary…but more on that later! XOXO

Stay fabulous,
