(CMR) The Cayman Islands Department of Tourism (CIDOT) and several Cayman Islands hotel and services partners recently exhibited at the largest trade show in North America, IMEX America.
IMEX America 2022 was held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas from 10 to 13 October. This year’s show had over 12,000 industry professionals in attendance, of whom over 4,000 were meeting planners—Cayman’s key target at the show.
The Cayman group’s primary goal was to promote the Cayman Islands as a key luxury incentive and meeting destination to third parties, corporate planners, and independent planners who, in turn, book their meetings and incentive programs at hotels on the island.
Additionally, the Cayman Islands had a sponsorship presence at the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence’s (SITE) SITE Nite North America, the unofficial kick-off of IMEX America. The event hosted over 2,000 industry leaders at Allegiant Stadium, the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders. Adorned with custom Cayman football jerseys, the Cayman delegation stood out from all, showcasing a unified, destination-first effort.
Attending Partners at the event included AVS Cayman, Cayman Airways, Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, Celebrations LTD, Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, Marriott Grand Cayman, Red Sail Sports DMC, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa, and Vivid Cayman: A Leather Collection by Laudi Vidni.
