What exactly does a Destination Management Company do?

A DMC organises your meeting or incentive. They organise fun leisure activities and interesting excursions. They arrange transfers and other transport if necessary, to bring your visitors from a to b or to bring in necessary equipment. In short, they take care of all practical local worries. That will save you, as organiser of the event or convention, a lot of worries.

What are the benefits of using a Destination Management Company for your event or convention?

The extensive knowledge of the region or city makes the DMC your expert on site. For example, a DMC is often able to give preferential rates based on its purchasing power and good relationship with local suppliers. You will of course benefit from this.

As a local planner, a DMC knows perfectly well which suppliers offer the best service according to your budget. Moreover, it understands the cultural standards and expectations and also speaks the language. Its long-term contacts are the best tool against too expensive prices.

In addition, a DMC is by definition familiar with the city or region. They know the shortcuts and therefore work more efficiently than you would be able to.
