2013 Convention Sales & Marketing Activities Study


DMAI has launched the questionnaire for our 2013 Convention Sales & Marketing Activities Study. The goal of this study is to provide DMOs and convention centers with a unique and informative information tool to guide their convention, trade show and group meeting marketing budgeting and planning. Critical topics include program expenditures, digital marketing, attendance support efforts, incentive fund best practices, to name a few – providing a wealth of information for identifying opportunities to strengthen your presence in the meetings and conventions marketplace.

The deadline for completed questionnaires is Friday, October 18, 2013, though the deadline can be extended for those DMOs who need a few extra days. 

All individual responses will be kept strictly confidential, never shared and will only be used in aggregate to develop industry benchmarks.

Benefits DMOs receive by completing the questionnaire include:

  • A complimentary Executive Summary of the study
  • 20% discount for the Full Report
