Exceptional value is another plus. The DR’s world-class all-inclusive resorts offer expansive activities, venues and restaurants.
The Dominican Republic is the second largest island in the Caribbean with a 48,000 kilometer extension and not only the highest mountains in the Caribbean (Duarte Peak with 3,175 meters: over 10,000 feet above sea level),
The glitter and excitement of the DR’s high-end casinos add an irresistible vibe to meetings and incentives and are likely to increase attendance, according to studies.
Under the terms of the Tax Information Exchange Agreement with the Caribbean Business Initiative, business meetings held in the Dominican Republic are tax-deductible for all United States citizens.
The DR offers a rich mix of old and new attractions. “We were impressed with the experiences you don’t find in other Caribbean islands,” says Marla J. Burton, CMP, manager of group operations for BCD Meetings & Incentives. “Our clients loved the jeep safari to a local chocolate (cacao) farm and cigar factory.”
