Where Meetings Business Gets Done

Northstar Meetings Group’s boutique hosted-buyer events connect vetted buyers with the suppliers they need to plan and execute successful meetings and incentive programs. All qualified buyers are fully vetted and hosted by us—including airfare, accommodations, hotel, meals, and scheduled networking activities.

During each event, buyers connect with suppliers in pre-scheduled meetings, educational sessions, and experiential activities that highlight the unique qualities of each destination.
