As competition for the business and leisure traveler continues to increase, it has become increasingly important for destination marketing organizations to have buying power to access timely, thorough, and accurate data upon which to base critical sales and marketing decisions.
DMAI is committed to providing its members and partners with resources that they need and want. The following offerings will continue to grow as DMAI looks identify value driven products for its members that are both scalable and essential to the success of their organizations.
BluePay, an award-winning credit card processing company, combines advanced technology with sophisticated security, ultimately delivering fast, simple, and feature-rich payment processing.
This new offer provides for a turnkey and merchant-friendly option to DMAI members and to members of DMOs who rely on credit card processing. A portion of the proceeds from the program will benefit the Destination & Travel Foundation.

Longwoods International, a leading tourism market research firm and longtime DMAI partner, is enhancing its existing partnership with DMAI by offering exclusive pricing to new and existing customers for two studies – Travel USA® and Halo Effect.
Travel USA is the largest ongoing annual survey of American travelers with a sample size of more than 330,000 trips in 2015. This will provide DMAI members with a complete visitor profile for their city or region. Halo Effect measures, for the first time, the impact of tourism marketing and visitation on a destination’s image beyond tourism. The data included in this study builds off the research presented by Longwoods’ representatives at DMAI’s 2015 Annual Convention. Longwoods International will contribute a portion of the proceeds of new business developed through this program to the Destination & Travel Foundation, to help assess and meet the needs of destinations and the broader travel and tourism industry.
