Our Company

Exceptional Advisors at Your Side

What makes an exceptional advisor? Someone with deep knowledge and a vast network of connections, surely. A great communicator who hears what you’re asking for and can provide the information you need (without breaking a sweat). A problem-solver and idea generator. A facilitator, an inexhaustible partner, and a trusted guide. At EDPglobal, we pride ourselves on being all of these things. And more.

Added Value. Without Added Cost.

As your one-call destination event planning advisors, we’re here to help you arrange your next meeting, incentive, conference, event, or group travel. We add value without added cost by acting as your consultant and dedicated liaison to our partner DMCs all over the world. Wherever you’d like to plan your next event, we have local connections there to provide invaluable assistance—from the initial planning stages through the completion of your event.

Every Event, Exceptional.

We make no exceptions. Whether you’re planning an exclusive destination meeting or an enterprise-wide incentive program, we will stop at nothing to make it an event that makes you proud. Our expert advisors are here to help you winnow down your options and present a cohesive RFP to the DMC in the destination of your choice. With exceptional service and expert, local DMC partners in more than 75 destinations worldwide (and counting!), the world is waiting. Where will you go?
