A Destination Management Company (DMC) is a term for a company possessing extensive local knowledge, expertise and resources, specialising 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 destination. These services can be assistance with 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 and money if you chose to go direct to each supplier you required.
■ Return on investment in line with a client’s goals and objectives.
■ Complete understanding of your needs and therefore providing suitable venues, attractions, cultural experiences and destination resources in line with your brief.
■ A great local research tool.
