AMResorts’ Carlo Trinidad says destination wedding groups have come back with a vengeance.
“We are fortunate in Canada where wedding groups typically book at least 10 to 12 months in advance, sometimes longer. So not only have individual bookings spiked, but also wedding groups,” Trinidad, the Business Development Manager for Western & Central Canada for AMResorts tells Travel Courier. “By pure capacity from the tour operators, Cancun/Riviera Maya, Puerto Vallarta, and Punta Cana lead the pack in popularity.”
Trinidad reports that destination wedding groups are very strong for 2022 across the AMR™ Collection, which includes 102 properties across 36 beachfront destinations and eight countries, and he’s now also seeing wedding group inquiries and bookings into 2023.
“I’m encouraging agents to stay positive and remain optimistic. I believe we’re on the path to onwards and upwards and the travel industry will rebound even stronger than before,” he says. “AMResorts has almost 60 resorts in sun destinations that cater to all budget requirements of a wedding group.”
