29 Nov Partner Spotlight | RMC DMC
“One’s destination is never just a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.”
The writer Henry Miller’s words captures the essence of what sets RMC apart from other DMCs. We are much more than a partner who can connect you with incredible destinations. Although we can certainly deliver on that expectation, we look beyond the luxurious location to the details and services that will take you – and your client – to a completely different level of experience. From inspiring concepts and high-tech special effects, to uniquely creative décor, show-stopping entertainment and every critical detail essential for success, we are committed to giving Prestige more than just destination management services; we’re delivering an authentic, exceptional experiences aligned with the goals and objectives or your stakeholders.
We have the leadership, the experienced team and the network of locations to deliver on this commitment. What began as Rocky Mountain Connections with just one location nearly 30 years ago has grown into the largest privately-owned destination services management company in North America, and a Top 25 Destination Management and Special Events Company in the World. Today, RMC is much more than a mountain DMC; our name represents Resorts, Mountains and Cities, and includes a network of over 30 destinations across the U.S. and Mexico. Over 55 team members work every day to exceed the expectations of corporate and incentive groups, associations, travel and meeting planners and a wide range of other professional clients. As RMC has grown, we’ve never lost sight of the importance of the partnerships and relationships, like that with Prestige, that have lead to our success.
“We love working with Prestige and their clients,” says Kevin Funke, Director of Business Development for RMC. “They have high expectations for their events and that’s what our team thrives on. It’s a great collaborative energy. There’s a level of trust between us that allows us to communicate clearly about objectives and possibilities for each client and event. Prestige allows us creative freedom, knowing that we will never lose sight of the ultimate goal – an extremely satisfied client who generates a significant positive return on their experience.”
In each destination location where RMC and Prestige work together, RMC offers the benefit of local knowledge, relationships and resources. “We have a local team in place in each destination and we hire local workers to staff events,” says Funke. “This means that we know each city intimately and have relationships with the people and vendors who can help us flawlessly execute your vision for any type of event. And if something unexpected develops, we aren’t troubleshooting from a corporate office; our team is right there with you, on the ground, in the place they call home, tapping into the resources and personal relationships they can count on to resolve any potential problem before your clients are even aware of it. That’s the peace of mind RMC delivers.”
Rhonda Brewer was recently named President of RMC. Formerly with Maritz, she brought more than 30 years of experience in travel and hospitality sales and operations to RMC when she joined the company in 2016. “The legacy of RMC provides a solid foundation for the future; one rich with opportunity for innovation and inspiration,” says Brewer. “We are passionate about what we do, which gives us the ability to create and continuously deliver authentic experiences to our partners like Prestige, who can always be confident in the level of service excellence and creativity we deliver.”
