Preferred DMCs director and CEO of Ambiance Incentives in Spain, Marc Schwabach DMCP, CIS, CITP, has been elected to the board of ADMEI for the 2 year term, 2020-2022.
In a recent statement Marc said:
“ADMEI is THE resource every DMC in the world needs in order to become knowledgeable, work professionally, grow their business, and stay on top of the game. The education ADMEI members receive through online resources, templates, training and the annual live conference, is incalculable.
I can only recommend that any DMC, no matter from where and of which size, not only become an ADMEI member and to grow professionally, but also to take it even further by taking the DMCP exam and even becoming an Accredited DMC (ADMC), the highest recognition a Destination Management Company can obtain in our industry.”
Marc stressed the importance of every member of Preferred DMCs holding certification and accreditation to ensure the same high standards in all Preferred DMCs destinations. Accreditation can be seen as an investment: it is a means to create value and to be accepted as a partner by clients, rather than as a supplier. It enables a DMC to become a subject expert and reach a level of professionalism where they add value from the very early event conception stages, by providing event architecture services, rather than merely a venue and tour booking service.
Preferred DMCs is a staunch supporter of ADMEI and a great believer in the value the association brings to professional DMCs. We are proud to have founding member Marc Schwabach on the Board and look forward to supporting him over the next two years.
