International Group Sales (IGS), a meeting and group incentive travel company, is pleased to announce significant growth by way of the addition of new team member and an expanding portfolio with new properties available from both AMResorts and Grand Velas Resorts.

Having more than 26 years of experience in the meetings and group incentive travel industry, Briggs is a true industry veteran and brings a wealth of experience to IGS and its customers. Briggs joins IGS as Director of Sales for Midwest Region. He has extensive knowledge of group travel operations in Mexico and the Caribbean, having worked both in sales and also operating client programs. Briggs began his career in incentive travel as on-site travel staff, eventually advancing to the position of executive director of group travel and, later, to a leading company as Director, Worldwide Accounts. Briggs also played a key role in retention and growth of top accounts for the companies where he worked.

“We’re thrilled to have Sam join the IGS family,” says Norma Villela-Alberico, Vice President & National Director of Sales. “His tremendous experience adds great value to what we offer to our clients. Our growth at IGS is a reflection of exciting expansion in the marketplace.”

Briggs joins the company at the same time that AMResorts, one of several property brands promoted by IGS, will grow to nearly 60 resorts in 26 destinations and more than 20,000 rooms throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America by the end of 2018. Throughout their expansion, AMResorts stays true to their philosophies of Endless Privileges, Unlimited Luxury and Unlimited fun with its six brands (Secrets, Dreams, Now, Breathless, Zoëtry and Sunscape), each providing a unique style and personality to cater to every taste.

One of the newest properties featured by Briggs and the team at IGS is a soon-to-be-open Grand Velas resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. This brand new property is the first luxury all-inclusive resort in the area facing the Gulf of California. It will feature 306 spacious suites, five fine-dining restaurants and a versatile convention center. This world-class resort will start welcoming groups and conventions in March 2017, at which time it will apply for recognition from AAA and other leading hotel ratings. Velas Resorts currently boasts a total of 43 AAA Diamonds.

With the addition of Sam Briggs to the IGS Team, Barry Miller has now been appointed as Corporate Sales Manager.
