Marco Bloemendaal joins PCMA to drive business development

The PCMA has appointed Marco Bloemendaal as global vice president of business development.

“Marco’s experience and knowledge within the DMO, hotel and business event communities will bring tremendous value to PCMA’s brand and help elevate the connections and business value we bring our global clients and communities,” said PCMA’s chief business officer Mona Cotton.

“He strengthens our leadership team as we continue our mission of demonstrating how business events drive global economic and social transformation.”

Bloemendaal will lead PCMA’s business development and account management teams and oversee the organisation’s efforts to provide business and marketing solutions for its global clients and markets.

“I could not be more excited to join PCMA and be part of a community that demonstrates how business events drive global economic and social transformation,” he said.

“I’ve spent the past 16 years representing destinations at the CVB/DMO level so I know the importance of not just the economics of business events, but also the social economics for destinations.”

He joins PCMA from VISIT Milwaukee, where he was senior vice president of sales.
