This series of events, held twice at Yankee Stadium in New York City, is the industry’s first event offering private one-to-one appointments between global suppliers and regional planners in luxury baseball stadium suites.
The Stadium Series gathered a selection of pre-qualified, Southern California-based meeting planners and incentive buyers for 365 one-to-one appointments with global travel suppliers including hotels, resorts, cruise lines, tour operators, destination management companies, and other unique venues akin to the atypical stadium experience.
The event opened with a valuable keynote address from Jennifer Martin, published author, motivational speaker, and the founder of Zest Business Consulting. While presenting “Leveraging Your Most Empowered Traits: Bring Them to Work and to Live,” Martin had attendees up out of their seats and interacting with one another to help them create the best version of themselves and help them succeed.
Private one-to-one appointments ran throughout the one-day event, inclusive of an exceptional networking lunch, a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium that provided an exclusive visit to the players clubhouse, and ended with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and prize giveaways at the closing reception in the Don Julio Club.
“This was my first Stadium Series and I felt the format was great,” said Haley Murray, national sales manager, west coast for Vail Resorts. “I loved being in the private suites to 100% of the buyers’ attention with no distractions, plus an amazing view and fresh air.”
The Stadium Series event brings together regional buyers and global suppliers for a day of one-to-one private, pre-scheduled appointments, networking receptions and meals, and a forward-thinking keynote speaker. Suppliers include hotels, resorts, cruise lines, destination management companies, and other unique meeting venues akin to the atypical stadium experience.
