The integrated global DMC and event management organisation will use local knowledge and information to showcase Peru as a conference and incentive destination. 

Harsha Krishnan, strategic development director at Pacific World, said Peru was rapidly emerging as the leading incentive destination in South America, due to its diversity of eco-regions, culture, spectacular gastronomy, luxury meetings facilities and a high level of safety and security. "The capital city, Lima, is establishing itself as a regional meeting hub with the upcoming opening of the Lima Convention Center, which can hold up to 10,000 attendees."
 
Jose Pedraza, managing director of Lima Tours and country director of Pacific World Peru, added: "Lima Tours is pleased to bring Pacific World to the South American region for the first time. Together we will offer local solutions for global clients capitalising on Lima Tours’ almost 60 years of experience in crafting extraordinary programs in Peru."
 
With the expansion into Peru, Pacific World now operates in 33 countries and over 100 destinations around the world.

The announcement follows the news that Selina Chavry has been appointed as Pacific World's global managing director.
