DMC and Hotels Representation
We visit tour operators and incentives houses regularly and offer front of mind awareness, product training to sales consultants, representation at trade shows and other tourism workshops, market-specific strategic advice as well as coordination of familiarization (study) trips. Promoting a DMC requires a combination of good destination knowledge and sharp sales skills, plus, in the case of the incentive market, some luck –being in the right place at the right time. It is essential to be visible to incentive agents as possible and to create front of mind awareness.
