Through this alliance, both companies can service meeting and event professionals globally while expanding our sales and business development outreach within North America.

“Mark Marino and I started this conversation back in April while sipping a delicious cup of coffee in the mountains of Costa Rica, and we closed it last week, with another delicious cup of coffee in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. This is how we do business in Latin America, it’s all about building relationships that make sense for our business and our most important for our clients.” Said Patricia Sahin, Founder and Managing Partner at LatinPlus DMC Group.

“Patricia Sahin and I both share the same passion for the meeting and events industry. We realized during the industry turndown of 2020/21 that we were busier than ever keeping our respective businesses alive. We both embraced new technologies, elevated our respective brands, and grew our partnerships. Having collaborated on a few projects together Patricia and I realized that working together we could achieve so much more.
