Pacific World and ACCESS Release the 2018 Special Destination Report

SAN DIEGO—March 6, 2018–Pacific World and ACCESS, two of the most recognized destination management and event production companies in the world, have released their 2018 Special Destinations Report, which profiles top destinations and explores why they are trending. Spain, the UK, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, Colorado and Dallas top the list of some of the most requested destinations.

While in many cases well-known destinations are still popular for incentive travel, the demand for immersive and more compelling experiences continues to rise, creating opportunities for locations and venues previously unexplored.

According to ACCESS CEO Chris Lee, “The progression toward the experience economy is something we at ACCESS have been talking about and delivering against for some time now, and many of the current trends in destination and venue selection confirm this direction.”

Patricia Silvio, Global Marketing Manager for Pacific World said, “More and more we keep seeing interest in off-the-beaten-path programs and destinations. By leveraging technology, especially social media, we’re able to reach more people than ever and better identify programs that fulfill a wide range of needs.”
