Global DMC Partners congratulates BBC Destination Management’s director of sales, David Room, DMCP, CMP on his successful term as the ADMEI Board President. Rome served as board president from Feb. 13, 2016 through Jan. 21, 207.

“It’s the ongoing initiative and drive that David, Cindy and Robert demonstrate that will continue to show the incredible value that DMCs have on the entire meetings industry,” says Chaulet.
