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.”
