It has been an arduous start but we managed to get the ball rolling… Preferred DMCs is born!
The new DMC group aims at covering a gap in the MICE industry, a secure place where clients with high expectations and complex programmes can find accredited, certified and fully professional Destination Management Companies (DMC) in the most important MICE destinations in Europe – for now. Preferred DMCs is a homogenous group of independent Destination Management Companies covering some of the most important incentive destinations in Europe who share the same values of service excellence, built on the common ground of accreditation and certification, and mutual trust.
What does this mean concretely? The value for any client using a Preferred DMCs partner when placing MICE business in Europe resides in having access to fully professional, knowledgeable, qualified and reliable DMC partners who have been vetted by ADMEI, the Association of Destination Management Executives International based in Austin, TX, as Accredited DMC’s (ADMC). During the accreditation process, DMC’s have to demonstrate not only their expertise in the field of destination management and local know-how, but also their financial stability, insurance coverage, business licenses, physical office space, internal organisation chart, client and supplier references, and memberships at public entities such as tourist boards and convention bureaux, as well as international industry associations.
All Preferred DMCs partners are well-established DMC’s with huge experience in the DMC sector, led by industry experts with a solid reputation in the marketplace who know each other since a long time, who trust each other and who exchange information and refer business to each other on a constant base. Preferred DMCs in that sense has become the more formal, official platform for conducting business together which formerly has already be done in an informal way between the partners.
