WMF is a unique event that brings business professionals from all over the world to discuss areas of opportunity within Latin and South America. This event is very much an experience that offers educational sessions, one on one tabletops, social networking and true B to B activations. Before coming to the WMF my knowledge of Latin and South America in relation to the events industry was limited. However, I now have a better understanding of what opportunities are out there that I can present to my clients as some new and fresh locations to consider for their next events. I have met some lifelong friends and colleagues through this event and it is something I look forward to each year.

Business Development Director LATAM
I thank you very much for having FROSCH in your events; I truly hope to be able to fully deliver as a Buyer on your expectations and on the expectations of some Suppliers. This was another great WMF! I must give it to you: I congratulate you from the bottom of my heart for creating events at the highest level. They keep getting better and better. Costa Rica will provide great business for FROSCH and for some of the allies that have believed in you. You indeed scored a goal with a marvelous venue!
The WMF is a unique space for networking, for getting to know new industry trends and vast domestic and international supply options; but the most important thing is that it is a space to do business in a different, fun way, where we can meet different industry participants and continue generating options and alternatives in favor of the meetings industry.
CES – CONFERENCE & EVENT SERVICES
The WMF 2019 in Cabo was fantastic. The hotel partners in attendance represented quality destinations throughout the world. The Hard Rock was a terrific host. WMF should definitely be on every planners schedule in the future.

Personally, I enjoy coming to the WMF because of the high quality of the commercial partners that meet there; very productive appointments are set that are interesting to both parties and the event is friendly, relaxed and respectful, given what we all do in order to honor the value chain on which this beautiful industry rests. I recommend the WMF to all my colleagues with an interest in broadening their network, both in Mexico and within the region.
Suplitur is very grateful for the recent opportunity to take part in the 2019 WMF COSTA RICA. Personally, I had never been at the destination and it was an engrossing experience for me, not only because of the quality of the program and the suppliers we could network with, thereby obtaining better business opportunities for our firms, but also because of the welcoming human warmth, the service culture that runs through the veins of Costaricans, who make you feel right at home.
Thanks to WORLD MEETINGS FORUM for taking us into account! Thanks for the invitation.
Global Sales Director and Sales Director Mexico and Latin America
One of the most important goals for Belmond is to position itself in the Groups segment, and the WMF brings together the best Meeting & Incentive planners from Mexico and Latin America; the event’s logistics allow for spending quality time with contacts, so that we can introduce them to our products and experiences and get to know their needs. The event’s logistics are very good; there is a balance between work meetings, networking and a relaxed interaction among the participants. We have generated business, grown our contacts and made good friends!!! We will continue to participate, because the WMF is the best event in the meetings industry.

CzechTourism – Tourism Bureau of the Czech Republic
For the Czech Republic as a destination, the WMF is the ideal platform for showing our existing offerings in the MICE segment, not only in Prague, but also throughout the country. Personal contact and interaction with all hosted buyers during the three days of activities, conferences, Table Tops and events are ideal for the purpose of establishing a commercial relation. The Czech Republic, as part of the touristic promotion of the Destination, has the goal of supplementing the existing offerings and making them concrete; this is why it invites suppliers, such as DMCs and the country’s hotels, to exhibit their own incentive program proposals. And the WMF is the ideal forum to do this.
Undoubtedly, the experience at the WMF not only showed me the core of the business, but also the possibilities opened through networking. New commercial alliances are created, in the context of which I am sure that we will continue to work together in promoting the industry. At PEE, we are thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this project.

ATOUT FRANCE – FRENCH TOURISM DEVELOPMENT AGENCY
There can be no doubt that we at the French Tourism Bureau, working together with the Office for Tourism, Conferences and Convention in Paris, made a great decision in taking part in the 2019 WMF; we were able to have high-level meetings, as well as to make important new acquaintances and re-establishing old ones; undoubtedly, it is an exceptional business forum for doing business; these are great professionals from the MICE industry; we can hardly wait for 2020, so that we can show the hosted buyers all the novelties and facilities that our destination can offer for your events.
Our experience at the WMF was truly exceptional! The team made us feel at home during the whole event. The value for money and the scope of the event are without parallel; networking chances and organization are excellent; we have been extremely happy. There is no doubt that we will be back in the next edition.
Commercial Deputy Director – Groups Segment Leader
Without a doubt, the World Meetings Forum is a functional platform that offers tangible results, which has allowed City Express hotels to position themselves as a strong competitor in the meetings industry; the Expo’s dynamics allow you to interact and meet the buyers, understand their needs, as well as to interact with other industry actors in a collaborative and learning environment.
