Why hire SAT Mexico for your next Event, Incentive, or travel program in Mexico

If you are planning an Event, Incentive, or Travel program in Mexico, you must consider some barriers.

Many companies decide to do the project by contracting local providers’ services because they believe this could keep the cost down or be less complicated to manage. But not having experience in Mexico could be costly and time-consuming. There are many constraints when doing a project in Mexico that you need to consider;

  • Kwon the local Business culture – this is the most important aspect.
  • Experience is an accumulation of previous failures – someone already did them for you, so take advantage of local experience.
  • Saving time is saving money – consider the word “ahorita” (that can mean either in a bit, I’m going to, tomorrow, depending on the context). We are used to this, but you might consider it.
  • The country is huge and with many social aspects to consider
  • In Mexico, Local partnership is essential and, therefore, negotiation power.
  • The service level is not the same. Always you need to consider knowing this to unify your expectations.
  • Creativity does not always mean good performance.
  • You must ensure that the company you are hiring is legal and financially strong.

By working with SAT MEXICO DMC as your local partner, you ensure to overpass all these barriers and the success of your project.

Background

SAT Mexico DMC was established at the beginning of the ’90s as a pure Incoming Tour Operator. Due to its German ownership, it serves the major cruise companies, International wholesalers, and German-based companies.

During the last 30 years, we have reinvented ourselves within the same line of business. And this helps us to create a more extensive portfolio of services for our clients.

We started with the Incentive travel segment in the middle of the ’90s. Many clients who had traveled with us spread the word to critical international companies. They were looking for a strong and reliable partner in Mexico to perform their travel incentives. We decided to put a hand on this sector that today we love.

But not always everything shines like gold. At the end of the 2000s, Mexico (and many places in the world) were hit by several crises that stopped International Travelers from visiting Mexico, like the subprime mortgage Economic crisis in 2008, the 2009 Swine Flu, and 9/11 in 2001.

During these years, we increased our performance in the local MICE market. We started organizing meetings and events for industries like Automotive, Pharmaceutical, Fashion, Consumer goods, etc. And we became pretty successful in helping our clients develop Meeting Congress and Events in Mexico.

And today is no exception. We continue diversifying in the same line of business to become an excellent solution for our partners and clients. We focused on creating a Laboratory for enhancing, creating, and developing better products and services in Mexico during the pandemic. Social activities and sustainability are part of our responsibility. We want to become the reference in the Incoming Tourism in our country.

We consider ourselves a medium-sized Boutique DMC. We focus on details; make the trip or event in Mexico an unforgettable experience. Our continued growth is based on good reviews from our clients and recommendations.

We tell our story to all our colleagues and partners since we believe that it reflects our company’s culture of moving forward and solving whatever problem might arise to become better.

We understand your needs.

You need to organize an event for your client, and you will help them choose a destination and create a great program within budget.

  • You need a partner that works as an extension of your team
  • You need a partner that can provide you with local knowledge
  • You need a partner that can answer as many questions quickly as possible and accurate
  • You need a partner that is financially solvent and legal structured
  • You need a partner that can cover you from any type of risk with solid liability insurance above the standard required by Mexican law.
  • You need a partner with solid negotiation power that can give you access to secure the best possible rates.
  • You need a partner that works with the same ethical practices as you.
  • You need a partner that can prove experience and professionalism no matter the size of your project.
  • You need a partner with good contacts with local authorities and suppliers who can help achieve things that seem impossible at first sight.

Then, what’s the problem?

  • Everyone who knows the Event and Meeting sector knows that many problems can arise. You need someone besides you that will be there to help you overpass them easily.
    Below are some excellent points to consider if you plan an event in a destination that you are not familiar by your own;

    • Arrive at the airport, and you do not find the transportation company, and if you have many transfers, you need someone perfect to note a good service.
    • Arrive at the hotel, which is under renovation, and no one from the hotel told you, of course.
    • When emergencies arise, you need someone to help you locally
    • Sometimes you might need to know the regulations in the country and insurance policies, Taxes, and local fees.
    • There are some fees hidden in services that you didn’t know, like a federal beach permit or the musicians’ syndicate for your farewell party, and without that permit, there is no party.
    • The weather changed, and now you need to change the program, and you have some hours to fix it and provide a similar alternative.
    • In countries like Mexico, it could happen that the road is closed and you need help to change it or even sometimes the Aiport and new plane tickets.
    • Time and efficiency: let’s imagine you have a project in which you need to hire ten different providers and make the same amount of down payments, invoices, receipts, wire transfers, briefing, and manage the difference in speed and accuracy in response. You can avoid all that, and in the end, this is more stressful and expensive time-wise than hiring a professional company.
