Pamela Ott, Wild Side Destinations and Destination Weddings.Travel, OR, USA
I am the founder of Wild Side Destinations and Destination Weddings. Travel With my contagious passion for travel, romance, discovery, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, I fulfilled dreams for clients including brides, grooms, families, adventure, and romance travel.
With 18 years of first-hand experience, we are positioned for boutique travel and services with concierge services. My background includes past and present board positions CTO, OSSN, CCRA, DWHSA, and more with Certifications for many Caribbean Islands, Mexico destinations, and others as well as Brand Certifications, Gay Wedding Certified, blog and writer.
I create and coordinate destination weddings, small and large designed for romance, love, and adventure! From an adults-only experience, a kid-free paradise, or a hip and chic experience for families and friends, my nurtured relationships with tourist boards and new trends keep us positioned on the cutting edge of destinations, brands and travel. Our hand-pick travel partners have business practices and company cultures that ensure comfort for all life-styles and we support sustainable tourism, volunteer tourism, child protection and nature.
I have been in the tourism industry for 18 years. The nurtured relationships with government authorities, representatives, and resort management mean resources and two-way communications on tourism and new products.
I also have influence and connections with associations and Facebook groups that help influence other travel professionals and the public. I am strong in marketing and my enthusiasm and dedication include creating new ideas, outside the box training and successful problem-solving.
We have been promoting tourism and have first-hand experience for the Caribbean, Mexico, South Pacific and Central America for 19 years. Our selection of partners have business practices & company cultures that ensure comfort for all life-styles and we have always supported sustainable tourism, volunteer tourism, child protection, nature and wildlife. One of our specialties is Destination Weddings, Honeymoons and Romance infused with destination culture, activities and experiences. From long ago CTO Regional Director, now CCRA Oregon Chapter Director, our travel planning culture is about discovering, learning and teaching other travel advisors in the area and travelers and clients. Infusing cultural experiences in always a part of our intent and why we are different from other Travel entities. We are Destination Specialists and have certifications from the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, South Pacific, Central America, Macau and are Brand certified with many resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean. Perhaps we can support you with knowledge in some areas also.
I would consider opening and inviting agents I currently know in a local group to consider the efforts of WTN and why they would gain knowledge and training by being a member.
Another organization specifically designed for promoting Destination Weddings, Honeymoons and Romance of which I am a charter member of might also be prospects.
