Pacific World’s Second Destination Index identifies top destinations for meetings and events in the World

Pacific World, the integrated global DMC and Event Management organisation, has released its second Destination Index. Thanks to the strategic alliance with North America leader, ACCESS destinations Services, meeting professionals will now also have insight knowledge about the top destinations in the USA, in addition to the top 3 destinations in EMEA and Asia.

Florida is the number one destination requested by the global meetings industry in the USA. Miami is known for its tropical weather and beautiful waterways but additional experiences include CSR team building events as well as a large choice of meeting and eating venues such as the Charter One Yachts which hosts a fleet of ships ideal for any occasion, from small or medium gala dinners to 500 person events. New venues and restaurants provide new creative options. The Destination Index has identified Arizona and San Diego as number two and number three top meetings and events destinations in the USA.  

Pacific World’s research also shows that in Italy, Milan’s current popularity is attributable to a better infrastructure with Milan Malpensa Airport, the second most important airport in Italy. Expo 2015 in Milan is also changing the image of the city, taking place between 1 May and 31 October 2015.  

Furthermore, the research has highlighted a large demand in incentives, meetings and sport events and an increasing interest in Italy from Europe and South America. Emanuele Pinna, Pacific World’s Destination Manager Italy explains: “New hotels and venues have recently generated significant interest including the ME Milan II Duca hotel, Moxy Hotel Milano in Malpensa airport, the Parigi Hotel & Grand Spa new 5* in the heart of the city as well as the Linear4ciak theatre (with capacity for up to 3,000 people) and the Milan Art & Events venue, a cooperation between Italy and China, to facilitate event and art expositions.”  

Pacific World’s Destination Index has identified South France – Monaco and UAE as number two and number three top meetings and events destinations in EMEA.  

Finally, Seoul is still the most popular city followed by Busan, South Korea, in Asia. The research has identified a large demand for meetings from the pharmaceutical sector, incentives with meetings and special events during international conferences, with an increasing interest from Australia, UK, USA and Brazil.  Ej Fieldhouse, Pacific World’s Country Manager South Korea explains: “This is a new destination for many corporate and association meetings and events.” The Destination Index has identified Indonesia and Hong Kong as number two and number three destinations in Asia.
