The role of a DMC
A Destination Management Company (DMC) is a term for a 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 a ground service based on local knowledge of their given destinations. These services can be transportation, hotel accommodation, restaurants, activities, excursions, conference venues, themed events, gala dinners and logistics, meetings, incentive schemes as well as helping with overcoming language barriers. By acting as purchasing consortia, DMCs can provide preferential rates based on the buying power they have with their preferred suppliers. A good DMC is critical in the success of any program and saves you valuable time.

They provide the following:

  • ■  Return on investment in line with clients goals and objectives.
  • ■  Complete understanding of your needs therefore providing available venues, attractions, cultural experiences, destination resources in line with your brief.
  • ■  A great local research tool.
  • ■  Leveraging relationships for volume savings with rate negotiations.
  • ■  Creative planning, due diligence and qualified English speaking staff.
  • ■  Peace of mind with understanding of cultural differences and local laws.

Leisure Specialists

Some of the DMC's we represent in the MICE market are also specialists in handling individual FIT and Leisure clients. Asian Trails, Arabian Explorers and New World Travel provide ground handling services, and can design, and plan unique and exclusive programs to suit the leisure market.

We are flexible and versatile.  Be it a tailored group itinerary, FIT or specialised experience-based tour; a beach holidays; a family trip; a special honeymoon experience; mountain climbing; through to an unique cooking and cultural experience, we can handle it all. We can assist you with the planning, design, and running of all types of activities tailor-made for leisure guest's needs.

The leisure market, like the MICE market, is an important source of revenue for hotels and destinations alike. Our three ground handlers also offer a full range of meet-and-greet assistance, guided transfers, accommodation arrangements and all types of transportation requirements.

We know this market inside-out, and by actively keeping abreast of the developments, new players and hence new opportunities, we are able to progressively market to the ever-evolving demands.

Tourism Portfolio's unique understanding of the tourism and hospitality industry within Australia, acquired from almost three decades of direct tourism, event and incentive marketing experience, including an enviable reputation and long-standing business relationships, is what ensures bottom line ROI. This, ultimately, provides our clients with tangible results and a unique edge in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
