What is a DMC?

A Destination Management Company (DMC) is a professional services company possessing extensive local knowledge, expertise and resources, specializing in the design and implementation of events, activities, tours, transportation and program logistics.

A Destination Management Company can offer a variety of logistic services for meetings, incentives and corporate events such as: Meet and Greet, Transfers/Transportation, Hotel Accommodation, Restaurants, Meeting & Conference Venues, Activities, Team Buildings Excursions, Themed Events, Gala Dinners and much more.

The Destination Management Companies part of The Collection of Ria Mooijaart & Partners are companies you trust upon for their quality and their creativity. They are often able to provide better rates in all their services due to the large buying power and long-lasting relationship they have with their preferred partners.

What is the added value of working with a DMC?

Conference and event organisers have more choice than ever in terms of destinations, venues, hotels, and activities. A choice which is not always easy to make and that can raise a lot of questions if you are not acquainted with the destinations you have selected.

Our creative and reliable Destination Management Companies will guide you through this difficult procedure and will create a tailor-made proposal that matches your specific request. They will offer you support from the initial enquiry all the way to the completion of the event. The DMC Collection of Ria Mooijaart & Partners has been hand-picked for their creativity, reliability and knowledge.

Besides managing all the elements of a programme, the Destination Management Companies that we represent will also provide you with support to avoid cultural issues and understanding of local business practices. Our DMCs have advantageous rates with hotels and venues and can provide visa assistance and information on CSR opportunities.
Our DMCs are aware of and will advise you on:

  • What’s new
  • What to choose
  • What to avoid
  • What works
  • What doesn’t
  • What to pay

By working with our DMCs you have a better general view on the budget of your events, meetings, conferences and incentives while enjoying expert local knowledge and all the benefits it delivers.

Some of the DMC Collection members are also specialised in the organisation of  unique, tailor-made travel programmes for the discerning individual traveller. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime holiday, a romantic honeymoon, the ultimate family holiday or a special interest group tour.
