Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
Global Events Partners (GEP), the leading partnership of destination management companies (DMCs) worldwide, is pleased to announce that it has expanded its collection of GEP branded DMCs internationally with the addition of GEP Destination Management Spain (GEP Spain). This brings the number of DMCs to ten with the GEP name.
Formerly CREATUR DMC and a long-time GEP Partner, GEP Spain is based in Madrid and covers the entire country serving the conference, meetings, incentives & events market.
“With nearly 40 years of experience in Spain, the DMC’s leadership and staff exemplify the quality we look for in DMCs bearing the GEP name. We welcome this new relationship that will strengthen connections for both of us while providing clients with the great service Creatur was known for,” said Chris White, GEP Chairman & CEO.
Nacho Ferrando, President of GEP Spain, commented “As a DMC partner with GEP for many years, we know the organization’s reputation for excellence and are most happy to now be part of the GEP brand of DMCs. This arrangement expands our marketing reach, particularly internationally, and gives us access to a depth of resources that would not be possible for an independent DMC. We look forward to welcoming even more clients to sunny Spain.”
White adds, “We’ve been looking to expand the GEP Destination Management brand outside North America for some time and believe that GEP Spain was an ideal first step. The experience and reputation of the staff are tops.”
Of the 10 DMCs bearing the GEP name, two are licensees: GEP Spain, and GEP Arizona. The other 8, which are owned by GEP, are Atlanta,Bahamas, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Savannah, South Florida, Utah, and Washington, DC.
