IMEX America, one of the travel industry’s largest trade shows, targets global buyers booking meetings and incentive group events. More than 4,200 buyers and 2,200 destinations, venues and suppliers are scheduled to attend the event in Las Vegas.
“The Florida Keys’ outdoor wide-open spaces, with many of them waterfront settings, offer a unique advantage for meetings activities. Our scenic natural backdrops and abundance of water activities create unforgettable Keys events,” said Jack Meier, group sales manager for the Keys’ Monroe County Tourist Development Council. “We’ll showcase our enhanced outdoor venues and accommodations throughout the Keys to this lucrative, highly desirable visitor market.”
Keys executives attending IMEX America with Meier are: Olena Novales, Playa Largo Resort & Spa, Autograph Collection; and Ines Vrielynck, Bakers Cay Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton; both in Key Largo; Anna Lawrence, Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key; Jennifer Tacey, Isla Bella Beach Resort & Spa and Faro Blanco Resort, both in Marathon; Alan Beaubien, Key West Marriot Beachside Hotel; Jackie Herbst, Opal Key Resort & Marina; and Andrew Rosuck, Casa Marina Resort, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, and The Reach Key West, Curio Collection by Hilton; all in Key West.
The Keys, a 125-mile-long island chain that is easily accessible via a variety of nonstop flights, are ideal for meetings with 15 to 100 attendees. Six airlines — American, Delta, JetBlue, Silver, United and Allegiant — operate more than 20 nonstop routes to Key West International Airport.
Travel restrictions for fully vaccinated international visitors to the United States are to be lifted starting Nov. 8.
