How Does One Find a Reputable Destination Management Company?
Most destination cities have a Convention and Visitors Bureau. The CVB most likely publishes and distributes to potential visitors an annual Meeting Planning Guide which lists convention facilities and service providers. Established DMCs may be listed in the Meeting Planning Guide. Note that a listing is a business advertisement based on membership and not an automatic endorsement by the CVB. Convention Bureau staff, however, may be willing to share with the Meeting Planners the names of DMCs whose quality of service they are familiar with or who are renowned in the market due to the word of mouth or customer/client reviews.
It is thus a good idea to outsource from a DMC if your travel agency is willing to quickly acquire market in new geography & gain new customers, also providing them established services that can handle all complexities of the new place. As mentioned earlier, one can approach another international DMC by searching online & inquiring about their services, or by contacting TraviYo, which is readily established in the business.
