Welcome! This is Shimo….and I’m Terri Roberts…and we’re from Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI). For those of you who may not be familiar, DMAI is the trade association for destination marketing organizations, often referred to in the meetings industry as convention & visitors bureaus or CVBs. Our podcast is dedicated to understanding what the madness is all about…and then connecting our listeners to potential solutions.
In this episode, we will be focusing on getting site inspections right. The success of your meeting can depend upon a carefully planned and well executed site inspection. Your ultimate destination and facilities choices must be attractive enough to draw attendance, be symbiotic with your organization’s goals and “character,” and have the appropriate space to comfortably accommodate all activities. An unpopular or ill-equipped location can spell disaster for the meeting you worked so hard to produce.
