Starting my trip across North America and being invited to share my thoughts on Ovation’s CSR activities has made me a busy blogging bear this month. Naturally, I deferred to my local experts for destination insights into China and Panama. Speaking of experts, guess who was recently named ADMEI’s Destination Management Professional of the Year?

Consider China

Be it food, technology, culture, folklore or innovations, every country in the world has ties to the world’s most inhabited country. Exploration of these ties is a key reason for the recent growth of the inbound business tourism sector. Do you feel a bit uneducated on what China can offer your guests? Richard and his team in Ovation China have created an infographic to bring your guests up to speed. more>
