Total Program Planning

We understand the different needs of meetings and incentive programs.

Meeting Incentive Experts is headquartered in Chicago, convenient to destinations and business centers throughout North America. We provide complete planning and destination management services for Fortune 500 meeting and incentive programs in all of the major destinations in North America, including Mexico, the US, and the Caribbean.

We’re not the typical destination management company. We first help our clients establish goals and objectives, and then help them plan programs to meet their objectives.

We manage the entire events planning process, including airline consulting, ground transportation, site inspections, hotel accommodations, theme parties, meeting services, activities, tours, team building events, local staff, and room amenities.

We work closely with you, and because we are based in Chicago, it is easier to work with us on the planning phase. But we are also present throughout the actual program, to insure that everything goes according to plan, and that everyone who participates has an experience they will remember.

Destination Knowledge & Expertise

We know the destinations in Mexico, the US & the Caribbean-inside & out.

Adam Lawhorne, CEO (CITE), of Meeting Incentive Experts, created the company because he saw a need for total destination services for meeting and incentive programs.

A full service Destination Expert company, we provide professional services to our customers. What makes MIE different from our competitors is our attention to detail during the planning and the execution of your program, and our offices in the USA and Mexico.

Our greatest asset is to have native staff in Los Cabos, Cancún and Puerto Vallarta who have worked in the business for more than 10 years in both destination management services and for Hotels and Resorts with extensive leadership skills. We use our knowledge and connections in all our destinations as an advantage for your program.

Adam Lawhorne, our CEO (CITE), has been in the business for over 20 years. His experience also includes being a past Society of Incentive & Travel Executives (SITE) Chicago Chapter President for 2 years, and he is an active member of the Mexico Tourism Board of Directors.

Attention to Detail

We go above and beyond to make sure attendees have everything they need.

As meeting and incentive program experts, we understand the importance of flexibility and attention to detail, not only during the planning phase, but during the meeting or incentive program itself.

Of course, the last thing you want is an unpleasant surprise. Sometimes, the unexpected will occur and that’s why we are in attendance throughout your program to make sure you avoid any problems or difficulties that may arise.

In addition to planning your program and providing destination management services, we also help each attendee with documents needed for the destination and provide complete information about local tours, culture, and customs.

We treat each attendee like a VIP, providing personal concierge service and going the extra mile to make sure every one has a smile on his or her face. At the conclusion of each program, we also contact attendees to make sure they enjoyed the program to the fullest.

Program Results

We develop programs that deliver ROI based on your business strategy.

Working with you to the fullest, from start to finish, is how we make sure your meeting and incentive programs provide your attendees with a memorable experience, and your business goals and objectives will be achieved as well.

Many destination management companies are located in the destinations, so they are limited by their destination focus.

But because we are headquartered in Chicago and have worked with clients in a variety of industries, we have a better understanding of the business environment, the needs of US companies for a return on their program investment, as well as an intimate knowledge of the services, facilities, suppliers, and options available.

So you get more than you’d expect from a destination management company. You get a business partner that understands the needs of your business, and a choice of destination, not biased by our focus on only one or two destinations. When it comes to meeting and incentive programs, it truly takes an expert to make them successful.
