Hello Scotland appoint MICEport as representation in North AmericaScottish DMC Hello Scotland have appointed Pennsylvania based MICEport LLC as their representation across the North American MICE Market.
Specializing in corporate incentives, Hello Scotland – Scotland’s most creative DMC - had a double celebration in 2011 when they celebrated their 15th year in business – which was also their best year to date and saw over 5,500 travelers visit Scotland with the DMC.
Hello Scotland has longstanding representation in the Germanic industry (TCC-Network) and in the Benelux markets (TravelMarketing) and felt that partnership with MICEport was a natural step that will compliment their existing partnerships.
Bill Thomson, Hello Scotland Ambassador says that, “We’re very excited to be partnering MICEport in North America. It’s an exciting market with strong links with Scotland and we look forward to combining creativity, enthusiasm and professionalism into a strong partnership that will give North American buyers a new take on Scottish incentives.”
MICEport, headed up by Matthew McIlroy, was formed in 2011 and their impressive experience across the travel industry has already led to successful results. MICEport’s portfolio fits ideally with Hello Scotland making them ideal for long haul incentives who want to visit both Ireland and Scotland.
Matthew says, “we are really excited to be working with Hello Scotland and representing them in North America. Hello Scotland has a dynamic team which produces extremely creative incentive and meeting programs in Scotland which are perfect for the North American market. Most importantly, the philosophies of the two companies are very similar; the main philosophy held by both companies to work as a real partnership for long term benefits for clients throughout the world.”
Project Director at Hello Scotland, Elaine Hamilton, explains what North America buyers can expect from this new partnership; “Hello Scotland and MICEport are already working hard to share knowledge, expertise and insights so that together we can create exciting, fun and ‘wow’ incentives for North American buyers. Think golf, whisky & heritage – but with unexpected memorable twists!”
