Ovation Global DMC Opens New Offices In Latin America

Continuing its global expansion, Ovation Global DMC has announced offices at three new locations in Latin America. The new offices will provide destination management services in Costa Rica, Ecuador and Guatemala. Ovation already operates wholly owned offices in Argentina and Brazil.

Effective December 1st 2011, Ovation services will be provided by the following Strategic Partner companies who have been selected according to strict criteria including operational excellence, financial stability and industry reputation;

  • Costa Rica - Travel Excellence/ TE Incentives
  • Ecuador - SURTREK
  • Guatemala - KAKAW & Sapphire
"Our colleagues in Argentina and Brazil have achieved great success in securing significant conference mandates across Latin America,’’ said Patrick Delaney, Managing Director of Ovation. ‘’With ongoing economic expansion throughout the region and the hosting of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 Olympics, the meetings and events industry will continue to be positively impacted.’’

Ovation has also confirmed a new Strategic Partner in Malta. With industry doyenne Fiona Captur retiring, EC Meetings replaces Unconventional Malta as Ovation’s Maltese partner. "We are confident that the legacy of operational excellence created by Fiona will continue under the leadership of Mark Gatt and the EC Meeting’s team,’’ commented Hugo Slimbrouck, Ovation’s Strategic Partner Liaison.

Full details of all Ovation office locations are available here.
