ACCESS, Pacific World Form DMC Partnership

Two leading destination management companies (DMCs) — Pacific World and ACCESS Destination Services — have formed a strategic alliance that will give clients of both companies access to event production services in more than 80 destinations around the world.

Based in Singapore, Pacific World offers destination and event management services in 26 countries and 50 destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. ACCESS, meanwhile, offers services in six states and 18 destinations across the United States. Together, the companies have 500 employees across 54 offices in 27 countries.

“We have been searching for global partners that uphold our standards and share similar values. Pacific World is an established, top-quality DMC with a strong presence across the globe, and we are thrilled to partner with them,” ACCESS CEO Chris Lee said in a statement.

Added Herve Joseph-Antoine, global managing director of Pacific World, “Our goal is to deliver both a consistent best-in-class experience in worldwide destinations and also customized to each of our clients from all regions of the world. Because ACCESS is also known for excellence, innovation, financial strength and compliance with business ethics, we can think of no better partner for this new integrated DMC model.”

ACCESS and Pacific World will maintain separate brands; however, the two companies will jointly expand preferred client relationships and coordinate marketing development.

“This partnership significantly expands our ability to deliver long-term value to our clients and industry partners around the world as we continue to expand into destinations where clients want us to be,” Lee and Joseph-Antoine agreed.
