The Eastern region has always been a popular pick for meeting planners looking to book group business. It's easy to see why, with data showing 58 percent of the U.S. population lives east of the Mississippi.
Accessibility is a major draw for the Eastern region, which is home to some of the nation's largest airport and Amtrak hubs, in addition to its extensive drive-in market.
Planners booking business here have a range of top destinations at their disposal — from major cities and coastal beaches to the Appalachian Mountains. Northstar's Destination East event, to be held Oct. 19-21 at The Desmond Hotel in Albany, N.Y., will provide planners with the unique opportunity to meet one-on-one with more than 40 suppliers from throughout the region.
The hosted-buyer event will connect planners and suppliers for three days of networking, education and planning for future business. As an added bonus, all planners will be gifted a Seiko watch and will have the chance to win domestic flight vouchers from Delta Air Lines.
