Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Jacksonville, Florida - Nov 01, 2016 - As part of 360 Destination Group’s continued growth in the Florida market, they announced the opening of a new office on Amelia Island where they will be the first nationwide DMC to establish a local presence.
“Our purpose is always to find new experiences for our clients,” said Joe Fijol, Managing Partner. “Amelia Island is a relatively undiscovered destination that is ideal for groups interested in Florida but looking for something new. It offers top-notch hotels like the Ritz-Carlton and Omni, authentic environmental and cultural excursions and full-service amenities. We are very excited to be the first nationwide DMC here.”
We are happy to welcome 360 Destination Group to Amelia. Our local hospitality industry is dedicated to providing the highest level of services and experiences to the meetings and group market. We look forward to hosting new groups and to working with the 360 team.
An enchanting Victorian seaport village reminiscent of the Guilded Age, Amelia hosts cultural festivals, historic places, artisans, outdoor adventure and a timeless southern charm. These qualities and its accessibility (14 miles from Jacksonville) position it to be one of the hottest meetings destinations in the state next year.
During the Open House last week at their office in Fernandina Beach, the excitement amongst the industry was clear. “We are happy to welcome 360 Destination Group to Amelia,” said Donald Stamets, Area Managing Director of the Omni Amelia Island. “Our local hospitality industry is dedicated to providing the highest level of services and experiences to the meetings and group market. We look forward to hosting new groups and to working with the 360 team.”
“Amelia Island is a popular destination for many different types of groups and meetings, but is still an undiscovered treasure to some,” said Gil Langley, president and CEO of the Amelia Island Convention and Visitors Bureau. “As the CVB continues to develop the meetings market, we welcome the efforts of 360 to generate awareness among planners.”
Over the last three years, 360 Destination Group Florida has aggressively added offices and staff, establishing a statewide footprint and a dominant presence. “Florida is one of the most exciting meeting destinations in the world,“ said Fijol. “We are happy to now be working with our local partners in Amelia Island to bring the consistent service and experiential excellence that 360 is known for both in Florida and nationwide.”
