TIME

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Thank you for attending TIME—The Incentives and Meetings Expo, our first annual trade show and destination event! Hosted kindly by Breathless Riviera Cancun Resort & Spa, this was hands down one of our most productive, unique and exciting events yet.

Day 1: TIME Registration and Welcome Reception at Secrets The Vine Cancun

The event registration was extremely pleasant where attendees and their guests checked in to the event, enjoyed cocktails and visited with Oka-b Footwear and Maui Jim Sunglasses to pick out their special welcome gifts. Later on we shuttled over to Secrets The Vine for the Paris Night Welcome Reception and Dinner Event. The themed costumes and sophisticated decor were complimented by beautiful music, creating a stunning atmosphere for the event- not to mention the gorgeous weather!

Day 2: TIME Trade Show and Dinner Event at Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort

We were extremely pleased with the unique design and layout of the trade show floor. The booth decor was beautiful and successfully conveyed the individual personalities of our six brands. There was great energy throughout the show and attendees enjoyed themselves while networking with our resort representatives. Later that evening Dreams Playa Mujeres hosted an Alice and Wonderland themed dinner event. This was a great opportunity to showcase the new resort and the spectacular events they can create.

Day 3: Amstar excursions, free time and the Final Night Venetian Feast Event

On the final day attendees and their guests could choose to set out for an excursion or relax and enjoy Breathless Riviera Cancun. The Final Night Venetian Feast Event began with a cocktail reception where attendees picked out their beautiful masquerade masks. Dinner began soon after in the ballroom with wonderful entertainment and a delicious gourmet meal. Before long, the fireworks began at the Energy Pool to launch the after party, featuring guest DJ Charlotte Devaney. The TIME event truly went out with a bang!

Thank you all so much for your support and accompanying us at our first annual trade show and destination event! We hope you had a blast, and more importantly, we hope you left feeling informed and fulfilled by the experience as a whole. Be sure to stay in touch and check out the photos and videos from the event!

Testimonials

Raffy—Wow, what a great event you all put together! It was informative and fun! We really got a good grasp of the AMResorts stellar properties and I’m very grateful for the invitation to attend. You introduced us to a whole new world in Mexico when it comes to choices for our clients. The entire staff at Breathless was so nice, customer oriented and focused on service. We admire that and I want you to let the Manager of the property know that we were very impressed with the quality of service that was provided. The food was exceptional! It’s interesting to see the various properties, who they target and the variety of things they offer. It was wonderful getting to know you as well. Now, I know why you are so excited about your properties. Let’s talk soon and thanks again! Ibis Kaba, Executive VP/Producer │ Life Journeys
Mary Paz—Thank you so much for inviting me (and my guest!) to the great TIME event this past weekend in Riviera Maya. Upon our arrival and through the entire weekend, all went so smoothly. It was such a pleasure to be a guest (for a change!), and be able to focus on the destination/hotels without worrying about our clients. The food, service, and layout of the trade show was all excellent. As we mentioned Saturday evening, not only am I enthused about the AMResorts product, but my husband is also SO inspired to connect me with corporate contacts of his (he works in the medical products industry)—so you inspired a 2 for 1 this weekend! I hope you got a chance to catch your breath and enjoy the destination as well. It looked like the sun was just starting to come out at about the time of our plane departure to the snow-filled streets of Chicago. Again, thanks so much for everything you did for this event to take place. It was truly a “class act”, and I felt so honored to be a part of it all. Lisa McGowan, President │ AWA Meetings
Suzanne—We just want to thank you again for hosting us at such a great AMResorts event! You did such a beautiful job with everything! Tim enjoyed meeting and having dinner with you the last night. We ended up having breakfast with Paula the next morning and really enjoy her and her knowledge of the industry. I am really anxious to receive the proposal from Secrets The Vine. I just think it might be the better place for CARR. As beautiful as Breathless is, the beach might be a big factor. I just really love The Vine's location. Lynne & Tim McNamara
Pam—I just wanted to thank you and your team for the phenomenal job you all did for the 1st TIME event last weekend. From the resort to the parties and the trade show, everything was top notch. I enjoyed meeting so many reps from the different clubs and have already begun talks for our Feb 2018 event at one of your clubs. Christine (Chris) Roach, Director, National Sales │ ClubCorp, USA
Dear Violeta—What a tremendous and memorable event was the first TIME. You and your fine team truly outdid yourselves and set a very high bar. Every single detail was perfect and all with such grace, polish and hospitality. I so admire and appreciate how you and your lovely team always do a perfect job. Here's to your continued success as you so deserve it. A huge thank you to all the AMResorts staff who made the event so amazing in every sense. Marguerite Florsham, President │ Strategy US: Meeting & Incentive Travel Specialists
Violeta—As always, thank you for an absolutely amazing event. I'd definitely say that the new format was a huge success. Everyone we have spoken to about the program has had nothing but praise for what you and your team has done for us. We're always excited to do business with AMResorts. Thanks again and have a safe flight home! Rob McGoldrick, Capital Events
Hi Raffy—I just wanted to send a big THANK YOU to you for giving me the opportunity to experience such an awesome resort. Triet and I had such a great time!! I meet with Stephanie on the 19TH and I am going to see if there could be some true potential to send one of her many programs to one of your beautiful resorts. Thank you!!
