Questex Announces 2018 Stadium Series Date and Location
NEW YORK (June 7, 2018) ─ Questex Travel Group, organizer of the Global Meeting & Incentive Travel Exchanges (GMITE) and publisher of International Meetings Review, has announced the next Stadium Series event will take place November 13, 2018 for the third year in a row at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, New York.
A pillar of the GMITE brand, the Stadium Series are regional events that take their private, in-suite one-to-one appointment concept to stadium venues, allowing suppliers the opportunity to conduct a minimum of 15 quality meetings in just one day, while affording meeting planners the ability to experience a unique venue for future events and programs.
Buyers will be represented by a veritable cross section of meeting and event planners, and high-volume incentive buyers from the Northeast region including New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. Plus, the Questex team will pre-qualify them in advance to ensure they meet the standards suppliers require for their business needs, another GMITE brand pillar.
Suppliers at the event will represent cruise lines, tour operators, destination management companies and sought-after destinations, hotels, resorts and spas across the globe.
Questex will be returning to Yankee Stadium again because it’s a very unique meeting venue and their service is impeccable, according to Jill Birkett, event director for the Questex Travel Group.
“We are looking forward to returning to Yankee Stadium for another exceptional experience at such an exquisite location,” said Birkett. She went on to say that buyers and suppliers alike have been continually satisfied year over year.
“It was an amazing event from start to finish,” said Mary Mitchell, sales manager for Delta Hotels by Marriott-Hunt Valley. “I had a full day of meetings and networking and walked away with five leads and $1.3 million in potential revenue for our property.”
“The unique meeting space gave instant comfort for all our meetings,” said John Williams, president, American Guest USA. “It was like inviting a friend to your home.”
“This event was a phenomenal experience,” said Christine Tolbert from Johnson & Johnson. “It was a great opportunity to be introduced to some elaborate resorts, hotels and conference centers.”
“This was extremely insightful and well worth the time,” said Phyllis Shelton, director of special events for iPower Global Solutions.
The Stadium Series brings together regional buyers and global suppliers for a day of one-to-one private, pre-scheduled appointments, networking receptions and meals, and a forward-thinking keynote speaker. For more information visit stadiumseriesevents.com.
