The ‘New Normal’ in the DMC World

By Dan Tavrytzky, Managing Director, the DMC Network

 

As with the rest of the world, we as a Destination Management Company (DMC) are coming to terms with what our ‘new normal’ is right now. Flights have halted. Borders have temporarily closed. Restaurants, bars, hotels, shops and venues have shut their doors and social gatherings of all kinds have temporarily stopped. This is not business as usual.

 

In the beginning, our events were halted within a day or two of operating. Guests were at home packing, venue builds were in process, staff were onsite, catering was confirmed. In these cases, we had to work quickly with our client to mitigate the fallout onsite...

Soft Power Trumps Hard Dollars When Measuring Success Of Incentive Travel

By Padraic Gilligan, Managing Partner, SoolNua

 

Incentive travel is self-liquidating. In the past, when pitching a company on the merits of an incentive travel programme, the clincher would always be that it’s self liquidating, ie, technically it costs you nothing  as it’s paid for from the incremental revenues generated by the programme. For show-me-the-money CEOs or CFOs, this was golden.

 

These days, tangible ROI, clearly, is still the clincher if we examine the results of the 2019 Incentive Travel Industry Index (ITII). When asked to select the most important benefit a company receives from its incentive travel programme, “increased sales and/or profits for the company” is the undisputed the top choice:

Deconstructing St. Patricks Day

By Rebecca Dixon, Custom Ireland, a DMC Network Partner

 

For many, a trip to the Emerald Isle to celebrate St Patrick’s Day is a bucket list travel experience. This beloved holiday is celebrated globally as the world unites and becomes Irish for a day, but for many, a front row seat on the streets of Dublin city for the annual holiday parade, is a next level experience! Some may choose a more epic journey and following the footsteps of St Patrick himself by visiting some of Ireland’s most iconic sites: St Patrick’s Cathedral in County Down, Croagh Patrick in County Mayo, Hill of Slane in County Meath, or The Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary…  Whatever the intentions for your travel to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day, the trip is sure to be unforgettable.

 

But who is St. Patrick anyway? When and where did the traditions begin? The answers may surprise you....

The Gut-brain Connection: How To Feed Your Brain

By Karen Brar, Founder of Nourished Union

 

If there was ever a call for “digestive health,” this is it!

 

There is much talk about how to manage your stress through mindfulness and living a balanced healthy lifestyle. Move, breathe, and eat well. But did you know how important what you eat and how you digest really is to your overall mental health?

 

Your gut is considered your “second brain.” Yes, its true! There is no denying it anymore.

 

With more scientific discoveries coming out about the vagus nerve, the enteric nervous system, and the amazing influence your gut microbes can have, it’s no wonder what you eat feeds not only your body but can directly affect your brain....

The Passions Behind the People

This month the spotlight is on Corinne Youngholm, General Sales Manager, Arrangements Unlimited, our DMC partner in San Diego

 

The pet...

No pets right now, we did have a black bunny named Shadow – actually she was my daughter’s and Shadow we were lucky we had her through middle school and all of high school and she got sick and we had to let her go. She and I became close after all those late nights after events and I would sit on the carpet with her,  pet her as long as she would let me, and unwind while I sipped on a glass of wine! She was my therapy bunny!

 

The smell...

Fresh baked bread – I LOVE my carbs!...
