Whether your theme décor at the gala sends attendees home with a smile, or your disorganized ground transportation has them wondering if they’ll bother to come back, it’s a fact: The services that destination management companies provide have a huge impact on how your events are remembered.
While size does not always equate with quality or creativity, it does often relate to experience and resources, and this summer’s annual report on at the biggest players in the world of destination management is available from our sister magazine, Special Events.
The top 25 DMCs are listed below, but Special Events has much more on each company’s business volume, estimated revenues, services, and recent noteworthy events. Each DMC also shares its take on trends to watch, including this nugget from Deco Productions in Miami: “Our clients are really focusing on the networking aspect of the event and positioning of their brand. By creating fun interactive stations throughout the event, it allows attendees to engage with one another on a more personal level, creating an overall positive and memorable experience.”
