During a week-long getaway to Playa Mujeres, Mexico, Continental GOLD dealers not only made connections with each other but also connected to the sandy beaches, sun and poolside camaraderie during the tiremaker’s 2023 GOLD Dealer Meeting. The four-diamond rated Atelier Playa Mujeres, a luxury resort with Mexican contemporary art, served as the backdrop for the meeting, which included a Continental beach party, mix-and-mingle cocktail receptions, a business meeting and a farewell concert by Argentinian Queen tribute brand, Reina.
