What is a DMC?

The Association of Destination Management Executives International (ADMEI) defines a DMC as; “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 DMC provides Return on Investment (ROI) to clients with specific program goals and objectives through local knowledge, research, volume pricing,  procurement and risk management. As your local expert, a qualified DMC integrates available venues, attractions and destination resources to provide the best match to your program, ensuring successful results. This saves you time and money, allowing you to focus on the critical content of your meeting, convention, or incentive travel program.

Why choose ACCESS?

At ACCESS, we don’t just focus on what we do – but WHY we do it.  We believe in the power of shared experiences that bring people together.   Shared experiences create the opportunity to both inspire and be inspired, and inspired people drive organizational success.

ACCESS combines the knowledge and intimacy of a local, owner-operated destination management company (DMC) with the diversity and efficiency of a 45-year strong global brand.

Let us transform your next event into your next inspiring experience.
