MANHATTAN PASSPORT is your perfect DMC partner in New York City. Our 25-year old firm works with ingenuity and a sharp pencil. More than 90% of our clients are from Europe and we have a keen understanding of cultural differences between countries, and regions. Each proposal is designed with the end user’s past history, profile, vision of the events, and budget uppermost in mind. In an admittedly expensive destination, MANHATTAN PASSPORT weaves in high impact, low cost elements to produce meetings, events, and incentives that please both procurement and clients.

MANHATTAN PASSPORT was founded in 1984 by Ina Lee Selden, former teacher (European Union offices in Brussels) and journalist (New York Times in Rome). From the start European clients were attracted to the company’s approach: understanding consumer protection laws in Europe; respecting that a spouse program is not about learning to tie a scarf; fully customising each and every itinerary to suit cultural preferences. Each request is followed up by an interview whose goal is to find valuable information that will make your proposal stand out from the pack.

On behalf of everyone at The Health Insurance Group, I wanted to thank you for your organisation of our recent trip to New York. The organisation from the minute we arrived at Newark Airport until we departed 4 days later was perfect, the hotel you recommmended was superb and the trips you suggested and organsised were fantastic. An of course our tour guide Dmitri, was just the greatest? All in all it was the perfect incentive trip and I have been basking in the glory of leading it since I returned. I hope we can work with you again sometime in the future.

I just wanted to email you and update you on a very success Incentive Trip we just planned and delivered with Manhattan Passport in New York. It was only a small group of 11, but the clients returned with some fantastic feedback – “The best trip ever!” quoting our client and organiser We found the creativity and communication excellent from Ina, and we genuinely put a lot of faith in her following the recent hurricane devastation. “It will all be okay” said Ina, and it was, absolutely excellent according to our client!
