100 Years of Advancing Destinations

Why Join DMAI?

Here at Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI), we have long realized destination marketing as a key driver of economic and social progress; enhancing communities through the creation of jobs, direct expenditures and local tax receipts. 

DMAI members become connected to a community of over 600 official destination marketing organizations (DMOs) around the world who work together to spread this message and enhance the industry.

We are the passionate advocate and definitive resource for destination marketing professionals worldwide. That is our promise. But don't just take our word for it. Here is what a few of your fellow DMO colleagues had to say about their DMAI membership.

DMAI offers unsurpassed developmental and educational resources for destination marketing professionals and their organizations. Their marketing and networking opportunities provide productive platforms for all DMOs to celebrate and create best practices with peers. Brand USA's association as a national DMO brings great value to partnerships with stakeholder DMOs at the local level throughout the United States.
- Chris Thompson, CDME, President & CEO, Brand USA

The Mexico Tourism Board (along with our 50 Mexican CVBs) values DMAI’s great education and certification programs, as well as its outstanding business sales opportunities such as Destinations Showcase. DMAI is the perfect place to involve NTOs in the global discussion of cutting edge destination marketing, knowledge and evolving business opportunities.
- Eduardo Chaillo, CMP, CMM, Former Executive Director Meetings Industry, Mexico Tourism Board

As a former state tourism director and current DMO CEO, DMAI’s many services including their annual wage surveys, CEO Summits, and other educational opportunities have continued professional development for my entire organization. I encourage every CEO of a DMO to look seriously at joining DMAI. They truly understand the demands and requirements of destination marketing.
