Karen and her team have sailed the seven seas to ensure product knowledge is vast and detailed whenever a cruise may be of interest. 3D is truly a ‘one stop resource for all things cruise.’
Karen often replies when asked, “What cruise lines do you represent?”
“WELL, TRULY ANYTHING THAT FLOATS.”
Beginning in the incentive travel industry almost 40 years ago, Karen brings a wealth of knowledge with combined buyer and supplier experience to the meeting and incentive marketplace. After 10 years working for incentive companies such as Carlson Marketing Group and S&H Motivation, Karen began her supplier career in the Worldwide Sales Office in Chicago for Four Seasons/Regent Hotels & Resorts.
After representing a well-known European DMC as Director of Marketing for the U.S., she joined Rosewood Hotels and Resorts where she became the Regional Director of Sales in Chicago representing the entire collection of luxury hotels and resorts. Joining Radisson Seven Seas (now Regent Seven Seas) in 2000, Karen became the Director of Charter & Incentive Sales representing this luxury cruise line to the incentive market nationwide.
Her love of cruises led her to open 3D Cruise Partners in 2004, allowing Karen and her team to bring instant cruise ‘insider’ expertise to incentive customers by providing immediate access and complete details for all cruise lines. Karen’s combined buyer/supplier (hotel, DMC, cruise) experience is unique in the industry, benefitting 3D’s clients with a diverse background to provide cruise and geographical expertise.
