Arizona

Why Arizona?

  • Phoenix, America’s fifth-largest city still has real cowboys and rugged mountains and the kind of cactus most people see only in cartoons. Phoenix is the gateway to the Grand Canyon, and its history is a testament to the spirit of puebloans, ranchers, miners and visionaries.
  • Projected against this rich backdrop is a panorama of urban sophistication: Resorts and spas that drop jaws and soothe souls.
  • Stadiums and arenas that have hosted some of the world’s biggest sports spectacles.
  • Restaurants with inspired cuisine and unparalleled scenic views.
  • Golf courses that beckon players the year round.
  • An abundance of activities to please everyone from the epicurean enthusiast to the outdoor adventurer.

Through its Strategic Partner Programme, Ovation Global DMC is pleased to work with 360 Destination Group.

From California and Arizona to Texas, Chicago, and Florida, 360DG packs 40 years of know-how into the destination experience. Constant attention is given to creating that unexpected “Aha!” for each new program. It’s all built on the foundation of being an extension of our client’s team at every stage of the program process. At 360DG, “Built Around You” isn’t just a tagline. It’s our DNA.

 

 

[...] Ross and his team have the incredible adaptability with situations that may come up onsite. Their uncanny ability to know what the client wants before being asked makes myself and the planning team feel comfortable and very secure in knowing that they “get it” and understand the importance of our attendee’s experience and how that contributes to the overall success of the program. [...] One of our attendees took the time to write me about Ross and his team and how they helped them out with a situation and went over and beyond their expectations. This is just an example on how they pay attention to detail, provide high level of customer service and make it their goal to supersede our expectations too. [...]

Ross Peck – Partner Phoenix / Scottsdale

With over 20 years experience, Ross began his career as a florist. He quickly learned the importance of unique, custom creations and making sure every detail was done to perfection. In 2005, Ross joined Destination PROS as an Operations Manager, and stayed on through the transition to 360 Destination Group where he was later promoted to Director of Operations. Over the years, he has overseen a large majority of our top client programs throughout destinations in and outside of the US. Experience, attention to detail, and an innate ability to problem solve have all been an instrumental part of Ross’ transition to his current position as Partner of the 360 Destination Group Arizona office. An Arizona native, Ross has a passion for his work and knows how to blend a custom experience built specifically for each group.
