Expertise & Local Know-How
According to the Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI), a Destination Management Company (DMC) is “a professional services company possessing extensive local knowledge, expertise and resources, specializing in the design and implementation of events, activities, tours, transportation and program logistics.”
A DMC represents YOU, and helps you achieve your goals and objectives for that event. You benefit from the DMC’s knowledge of local products, network of suppliers and buying power. A DMC will negotiate on your behalf, keeping your best interests and budget in mind. A DMC leverages its relationships and purchasing power to provide the highest quality of service in a cost-effective manner. And, a DMC will be there to help you out in case of emergencies and unforeseen setbacks.
Quality & Added Value
Many times, the meeting manager does not have the luxury of time to research the best solutions in a foreign destination.
Destination management professionals have in-depth knowledge of their destination and know the peculiarities. They source new locations & venues to keep you abreast of the newest products & latest developments. For a large event, it is not unusual to draw on a pool of 100 contractors or more.
Destination Management Companies are event architects providing creative solutions to fit each brief. In effect, they are a one-stop management company.
