We’re right in the middle of Q3 and speeding towards 2019. Group travel, corporate meetings, events and incentive programs are booming, and the forecasts don’t show any sign of a slowdown. It’s all systems go in DMC Industry, but that doesn’t mean everybody will stay ahead. A single Google search reveals more and more event planning tools are available at people’s fingertips, so it’s incumbent on DMCs to adapt and stay ahead of the market.
DMCs Need to be on the Cutting Edge
We all understand the vital importance DMCs play in group travel and event planning. No amount of technology will every replace the local knowledge, connections and experience that makes for the perfect event. But that doesn’t mean DMCs can rest on their laurels. Even as the market thrives and total spends increase, margins are shrinking as readily available pricing, location, venue, accommodation, leisure and activity information disseminates freely online. DMCs don’t need to fear technology, but instead should seize the opportunity technology offers.
