Meetings and Incentive Travel MartLatin America Latin America may not have a high profile as a meeting and incentive destination--but it delivers. That's the theme of the first Meetings and Incentive Travel Market (MITM)Latin America, to take place in Guadalajara, Mexico Jan. 14 to 17.

Instead of a conventional trade show, the travel market will bring together suppliers and attendees for individual 15-minute appointments. There will also be a full day of seminars and optional post tours to such Mexican destinations as Puerto Vallarta, Manzanillo, and Oaxaca. The show has a "qualified buyer" program with discounted rates: A $350 fee includes transportation on American Airlines, as well as hotel accommodations and meals.

"Guadalajara is one of the best-kept secrets in Mexico," says Carol Krugman, who is assisting the show organizers. "And throughout Latin America, the increasing economic stability of recent years has spurred foreign investment to improve the hospitality infrastructure."

Sponsors of MITMLatin America include GSAR Marketing, American Airlines, World Incentive Nexus, Meeting Professionals International, and Adams Business Media.
