Never before had Dominican Republic hosted an international event of these characteristics. Without a doubt, Santo Domingo hosting both events will be the seed that will make MICE and Cultural tourism flourish for first time in this country.
The events where hosted in the emblematic “Hotel Embajador, A Royal Hideaway”; that maintaining both its essence and personality that characterizes it has renovated all its rooms and conference rooms entirely both in comfort and technology, reaffirming its known charisma, service and high level gastronomy.
Other that the hotel hosting the event, the participants could experiment the vast hotel pool Santo Domingo has to offer for MICE tourism thanks to all the event´s official hotels: Hotel Catalonia Santo Domingo, Hotel Intercontinental Real Santo Domingo, Hotel Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo, Sheraton Santo Domingo Hotel & Dominican Fiesta Hotel & Casino, Barceló santo Domingo and Hodelpa..
