A DMC, or a Destination Management Company, 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 provides Return on Investment (ROI) to clients with specific program goals and objectives through local knowledge, research, volume pricing, procurement, and risk management.
As your local expert, a qualified DMC integrates available venues, attractions, and destination resources to provide the best match to your program, ensuring successful results. This saves you time and money, allowing you to focus on the critical content of your meeting, convention, or incentive travel program.
Why use a DMC?
You’re a busy professional who knows what’s required for every type of meeting for which you are responsible. You also know it is not really possible for you to personally handle every detail on some of your projects: the meeting is too large; the time frames between sessions and events are too short; there is not enough staff available. What you need is another you!
Well, there is no other you, but there is something out there that may come close. No matter where your meeting or project is scheduled, help is as close as your nearest Destination Management Company. The newest association in the meetings management field has begun to take some of the mystery out of the most invisible component of the invisible industry of meetings.
Destination management companies are architects and general contractors for meeting professionals. They outline ideas via proposals, and once the decision is made, set out to make the desired component happen. Just as convention services managers in hotels and Decorating Companies in the exhibit hall become extensions of your staff, your ultimate outsource partner outside the education sessions and exhibit halls, is your destination management company.
Depending on the company and the staff specialists in the company, they offer, but are not limited to, creative proposals, transportation, meet & greet airport service, guest & spouse tours, VIP amenities, shuttle services, staffing, on & off-site activities, dine-arounds, team building, entertainment, decor and theme development, advance and onsite registration services, translation services, and whatever else the meeting professional might need to insure his/her event is successful.
