The world’s leading destination management company and incoming event organizer, has entered into a new strategic partnership in the US with 360 Destination Group.

Commenting on this partnership, Trevor Hanks, Managing Partner of 360 Destination Group stated: “Ovation Global DMC has long been considered a leader in the hospitality industry. 360 Destination Group recognizes that this collaboration between our two companies will elevate our presence and essence as pioneers in the DMC and events industry. Our partnership is a win-win-win for our company, Ovation Global DMC and most importantly, our customers both domestic and worldwide. 360 Destination Group could not be more excited about our future and our positioning as a company that will always think differently and always be built around the needs of our clients.”
This expansion comes as a result of the Ovation Strategic Partner Program, launched in July 2009. The program was introduced to provide DMC services to companies, associations and agencies at locations where Ovation did not have a wholly owned office. Ovation Strategic Partners are, typically, the leading local DMC and are selected based on strict criteria.
Drawing on the experience of a true expert local management team, these new partnerships aim at enhancing the high touch incentive and corporate meeting program capabilities for both national and international clients.
