The holidays are a time of giving, but finding the right gift is never easy. So we’ve put together a list of the perfect gifts for everyone in your organization.
For Your CEO
The holidays are all about bringing people together. So help your CEO bring together stakeholders in your destination with a DestinationNEXT workshop. These workshops, led by Managing Director Paul Ouimet, are the perfect way to bring together various stakeholder groups to develop strategic plans, tourism master plans or regional meetings. Everyone from traditional stakeholders to convention centers, hotel/restaurant associations, city councils, and economic development agencies can participate.
Sure the holidays are typically a time to think of others, but sometimes you have to take care of yourself and your own professional development. DMAI offers a wide range of events to cater to the needs of industry professionals with various professional tracks and levels of experience. So make the most of your membership and ensure your destination remains at the forefront of the industry.

- A booth at Destinations Showcase
- The 2015 DMO Organizational & Financial Profile Study
- The Event Impact Calculator
- DMAP Accreditation
For Your Industry
