Welcome to blog.empowerMINT.com : Powered by Destination Marketing Association International
Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) is the global trade association for official destination marketing organizations (DMOs), also known as Convention & Visitor Bureaus (CVBs).
Our expansive blog connects meeting professionals directly to our DMOs/CVBs members and their vast destination resources. They make it easier for you to FIND what you are looking for! In fact, DMOs/CVBs were responsible for helping find a venue or hotel for over 39,000 events last year! We hope you will find using our expertise helpful too!
Whether you have done your own on-line research, are using a GSO or a 3rd party planner, or even if you have never planned a meeting and are just starting out, our destination experts will guide you seamlessly through the process.
They are your best first point of contact to find just the right fit for any size meeting, and they are uniquely suited to the task through their local expertise, their comprehensive view of the destination, and the extensive in-market relationships they have cultivated, so you can take full advantage of them.
All for FREE…or at least, FREE to you, as their services have already been paid for by the taxes and assessments in their destinations that support tourism. A CVB is a not-for-profit organization largely funded by hotel occupancy taxes. CVBs help planners save time and money with access to a wide range of services within their destinations, including but not limited to: arranging site inspections, checking hotel and meeting space availability, and linking planners to expert local service providers.
We hope you will find the articles, blogs, videos, webinar replays, destination information and destination news for meeting planners helpful and visit empowerMINT.com directly to connect with our destination experts waiting to help you plan your next meeting.
At empowerMINT.com you can search all your destinations of interest at one online portal, and find information on meeting space, conference facilities and hotels within each destination and offer one RFP to multiple destinations, and receive unlimited local advice from their destination experts. At empowerMINT.com, finding a local expert is easy—simply search, compare and connect.
