After a long, successful career in tourism, Emmanuelle decided to create her own agency – Conventions USA – in 2005. Backed by 20+ years’ experience in the service industry in the US and around the world, she now successfully leads Conventions USA, infusing professionalism, dedication, and teamwork into every assignment.

Her vision has created a winning team that is friendly, flexible, responsive and, above all, “at your service!”

Born and raised in France, Karine followed a dream that brought her to the USA 15 years ago; Florida has been her home ever since. Part of Conventions USA’s team since 2008, Karine combines the work she loves with her everyday life: incorporating in her work all that she has discovered and experienced since taking up residence in the US. She delights in sharing it to create unusual trips and unforgettable memories for clients.

Discovering under-the-radar restaurants where atmosphere and cultural diversity blend to create magic is her special talent.


Armed with a degree in communications, public relations and events management, Alexia spent several years in the tourism industry on multiple assignments between Paris and the US. She joined the Conventions USA team in 2014 as an incentives expert. This focus allows Alexia to use her creative side and do what she loves most: find intriguing restaurants and venues, trendy speakeasy bars, unusual boutiques — everything to create memorable trips for her clients.

She is unsurpassed at following the latest trends in every city and discovering the best local delicacies.



Following ten years with a Destination Management Company (DMC) specialist based on the French Riviera, Sophie moved to the US to take a position in the incentive department of a US-based DMC.
