Uniqueworld DMCs offer expert Destination Management services to save you hours and hours of precious time, labour, money by providing knowledge, expertise, creativity and local reliable contacts. Deciding when to use a DMC depends on several factors, including destination, meeting size and activities, budget, staffing requirements and familiarity with the destination.
Services will include information about the destination and how to best navigate it and source the best suppliers outside of the DMC’s remit. Staff are typically multi-lingual with acknowledgement of an event enquiry occurring upon receipt of the enquiry. A proposal with a budget is typically generated within 48hours depending on the complexity of the brief. Something new, creative and WOW is the ever occurring question in our industry and we therefore strive to include secured privileged access to private areas or unique and new venues making your programme that much more special for your delegates or guests. Here are a typical list of services: airport meet & greet, amenities and awards, audio visual production of events, CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), restaurant dine arounds, hospitality registration desk, online registration, off-site venue events, site inspections, speakers, sports activities, team building, themed parties, group tours and excursions, transportation and logistics.
Why Uniqueworld DMCs?
Uniqueworld as a members association is employed to act on their behalf, saving you time and money, with no added costs. Each member is placed through a rigorous preferred supplier tender agreement ensuring you are working with a fully licensed and liability insured supplier. Buyers benefit in working with award winning suppliers – event specialists in the global meeting, incentive and conference and exhibitions industry. We often say the best reference is from a local hotel – you will often see our members exhibiting with the Leading Hotels of World on the trade show floor! Importantly, in the events industry to maintain a business relationship, service quality is of most importance and this is now reflective of the Uniqueworld member’s large company infrastructure continually growing. Each member is typically the largest destination management company based locally within their destination offering strong buying power, reassuring your investment is not only in safe hands but also being provided a consistent and quality level of service.
A common misconception is that using a DMC will add costs to your event programme. DMCs often secure lower prices through their volume buying power within their local area or destination(s), actually providing you added value. With information becoming ever more accessible via the internet is often difficult to know what supplier to trust your special event with? It is therefore paramount to work with an organisation awarded with the local knowledge and expertise. This is where we can help! Where can you see us? Besides contact us online, Uniqueworld exhibit or attend the global international meeting trade shows including EIBTM, IMEX, IMEX America, AIBTM and CONFEX.
Reducing Your Strain on Resources
DMCs are ideal to not put strain on your internal resources. For instance, if there is the need to staff the movement of a lot of people, a DMC has the local knowledge and manpower to provide a quality service for your event. In having onsite DMC support, a smiling face or calming voice is sometimes all that is needed to turn drama into an opportunity helping you to impress and maintain an organised and well structured event! Our full service member DMCs act as a partner who will go out of their way to provide knowledge, services and contacts in a destination. Ideal for when you do not know about a city or destination to plan certain aspects of the programme. Our members are willing to go above and beyond and are all approved by SITE, the first international nonprofit association dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in incentives.
Next month, I look forward to discussing how our members support the hotels.
