My Value Proposition: A Destination Management Solution

After 25 years of designing, selling, planning, and overseeing the delivery of Incentive Programs and Meetings of distinction, I concluded that my DMC selection was critical to achieve success.


Certain DMCs made a difference because their performance reflected their "raison d'être," and some have even become good friends. Like all good and positive things, I've decided to share them with you.

Consider me your assigned Account Manager. I am a reliable resource to bridge the gap between you and your destination and effectively fulfill your project's requirements. My purpose is to lighten your load, and contribute to your success by combining my expertise with the services of my DMC friends.

Under the leadership of John Nedeau

John's love for Cancún began shortly after arriving from New York in 1995. He quickly developed an appreciation of the area's resources that fueled a motivation to discover everything Yucatan, and

became a destination expert. 


He started his Destination Management career as Palace Resort’s in-house DMC in 1999 under the brand name Cancun Event Organizers. We earned a stellar reputation while becoming the destination’s largest DMC in four short and very exhausting years.


John's affinity for personal service inspired him to rethink his passion for the extraordinary, and in 2003 he created Corporate Event Organizers (C.E.O. Mexico) - an agency that specializes in customized “one-off” experiences for a discerning clientele.


"My profound love for hospitality, our sincere desire to please, and our fascination with our special part of Mexico have earned C.E.O. Mexico a reputation of excellence. We are fortunate to have a loyal client base, and possess an excellent relationship with the entire network of hotels, travel partners, and service providers that’s proven to be extremely beneficial to our customers and their guests."


The C.E.O. Mexico team would be thrilled to have the opportunity to earn your business, and are excited to be associated with the finesse and professionalism that the Destination Excellence brand represents.
