Washington D.C.’s Global DMC Partners, the leading global network of Destination Management Companies, announced their Global Standardization Program, offering meeting professionals a more effective and streamlined way to procure destination management services worldwide. After working closely with its Customer Advisory Board and DMC Advisory Board, three documents were developed, allowing meeting professionals to save time and simplify the process of contracting and working with their DMCs in any destination.

“This partnership-wide initiative is imperative to maintaining the excellence in our service levels and operations, starting right from the sourcing phase through program completion,” says President of Global DMC Partners Catherine Chaulet.

Global DMC Partners’ clients can access three tools through the Global Standardization Program:

Standardized Contract

For meeting planners and/or companies who do not have a standard DMC contract in place, the Global DMC Partners Standardized Contact contracts services with any Member DMC. This document makes sure the contracting process is simple and concise and that no key contracting terms are left out.

Global DMC Partners Proposal Guidelines

The guidelines ensure clients receive all key items, information and pricing in every Global DMC Partners proposal no matter the DMC or destination. The guidelines create consistency for planners without stifling the DMCs’ creativity and ability to showcase their own proposal format.

Global DMC Partners Event Safety Plan

Meeting professionals, DMCs and vendors follow a step-by-step guide of items that should be included in every single emergency preparedness plan before any program takes place. The Global DMC Partners ESP can be applied to any program in any destination.

“The main value of working with a brand like Global DMC Partners is that we are a true partner and an extension of our clients’ teams, ultimately simplifying a process that can be complex,” says Chaulet. “In addition, we provide access to invaluable tools, like our Global Standardization Program, which offers another huge value to our clients.”

Meeting planners can learn more about the Global Standardization Program by contacting their dedicated Global DMC Partners Advisor, visiting www.globaldmcpartners.com or by emailing info@globaldmcpartners.com.

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.

 

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business.
