Destination Management

What is a Destination Management Company?

A Destination Management Company (DMC) is a specialized company that has a full understanding of the destination and is able to organize all aspects of meetings, conventions or group travel. Their services are tailor-made to suit the individual needs of each of their clients, and their up-to-date knowledge of the local area and professional expertise will assist the client in utilizing the resources in a community in the most effective way. Their services involve not only basic arrangements like transportation, but also planning off-site functions like dinners, tours, etc.

Why use a DMC?

The advantage of using a DMC is that they are there to coordinate an entire program and make sure that all the pieces of the puzzle fit together.
