GPS Destinations DMC Collective and LatinPlus DMC Group Announce Strategic Alliance

Chicago, IL. and Miami, Fl. November 5, 2021

The meeting and events industry is evolving due in part to powerful alliances of like-minded companies.  GPS Destinations DMC Collective, a Global Destination Management Collective, and LatinPlus DMC Group a regional DMC network with operations in all Top Latin American destinations; have created an alliance that offers meeting planners a broad range of global DMCs vetted to the highest standards.

LatinPlus DMC Group and GPS Destinations DMC Collective have aligned their sales forces to offer clients greater access to this global community of destination management companies and stronger synergies to their member DMCs. Through this alliance both companies can service meeting and event professionals globally, while expanding our sales and business development outreach within North America.

“Mark Marino and I started this conversation back in April while sipping a delicious cup of coffee in the mountains of Costa Rica, and we closed it last week, with another delicious cup of coffee in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. This is how we do business in Latin America, it’s all about building relationships that make sense for our business and our most important for our clients.” Said Patricia Sahin, Founder and Managing Partner at LatinPlus DMC Group.

“Patricia Sahin and I both share the same passion for the meeting and events industry. We realized during the industry turndown of 2020/21 that we were busier than ever keeping our respective business alive. We both embraced new technologies, elevated our respective brands and grew our partnerships. Having collaborated on a few projects together Patricia and I realized that working together we could achieve so much more. It’s exciting to offer our clients a broader collection of DMCs and I’m thrilled to embrace our new Latin American destinations!”
