Connecting People With U-CANNECT

Well known tourism professional Raoul Canetti has launched a new sales and marketing representation concept with the objective to connect the MICE industry to a new portfolio of international DMC’s.

With 20+ years’ experience in the travel industry, many of which were spent in the incentive space servicing both the inbound and outbound tourism, Raoul has a wealth of experience and operational knowledge, that the decision to open his own company ‘U-Cannect’ was the next most obvious step in his career.

It is this operational know-how that will be invaluable in creating the perfect synergy between the MICE industry and the international DMC.

Ultimately, his vision is to connect all Event Planners to a database of experienced, creative & innovative incentive Destination Management Companies to ensure a client’s dream incentive is turned into a reality.

Each DMC in the ‘U-Cannect’ portfolio has been handpicked according to their common work ethic, passion, personalisation, professionalism and incentive speciality.

Their thorough understanding of their respective destinations will help guide in designing the perfect tailor made itinerary for the client.
