euromic, the leading international consortium of companies specializing in MICE travel and destination management, recently announced that Walpax has joined the association as a new member destination management company (DMC) in Brazil. Walpax, founded in 1963, specializes in developing tailor-made programs for incentives, meetings, FITs, tour series and special interest groups throughout Brazil.
"euromic is proud to welcome Walpax as our association's partner in Brazil,” says Mr. Karim El Minabawy, President of euromic. “The company's dedicated staff, close network of suppliers and commitment to collaboration with clients results in a level of service in keeping with euromic's stringent standards."
“Membership in euromic serves as a quality seal and recognizes our professionalism and excellent team performance,” says Mrs. Anna Nagy, Director of Walpax. “The warmth of the Brazilians plays an important role in the way we do business. Our main philosophy is our dedication to serving as ‘your office in Brazil’.”
From Rio de Janeiro to Salvador, and from the Amazon to Iguazu Falls, Brazil features a diverse array of experiences, including rainforest, waterfalls, beaches, mountains, and exciting city life. With world-class hotel infrastructure, rich gastronomy, modern industry, up to date technology, varied entertainment and shopping, Brazil has become more and more attractive to the MICE market. In addition, the world's eyes will be on Brazil this year with the planet's largest party, Carnival in Rio in February & March, and the 2014 FIFA World Cup in June & July, highlighting all this destination has to offer.
Founded in 1963, Walpax Viagens e Turismo was already a full resource travel agency when its current owners took the reins in 1978 and turned Walpax into a true destination management company. That new beginning was decisive in determining the company's philosophy. Over the years, Walpax has not only become a specialist in incoming tourism, but also a leader in representing foreign travel companies in Brazil. Today WALPAX offers a well trained international staff to meet clients needs fully and efficiently, covering all product segments: GITs, FITs, special interest programs and incentive travel programs.
