Destination Takeovers with the DMC Network

 

Like you, we are so looking forward to the opportunity to have you experience our destinations in person soon!

 

But in the interim, just one of the avenues that we have been using to showcase what’s going on locally is social media.  Each week one of our DMC’s takes over our DMC Network Instagram accounts and shares a day in the life of their incredible destination (all in a socially distant, safe way of course!).

 

So whether you are looking for an update on Indianapolis, Portugal, Hawaii, or anything in-between, come see our Instagram page and check our destination highlights.

 

We’d love to hear your favourite – get in touch and lets us know, we’ll put you in touch with that destination and register your interest to experience it in person with us in 2021....

Deconstructing St. Patricks Day

By Rebecca Dixon, Custom Ireland, a DMC Network Affiliate

 

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.

Everything You Need to Know About the New SLC International Airport

By Jenny Wilden, Travel Director with Summit Events DMC, a DMC Network Company

 

When flying in or out of Salt Lake City lately, you’ll see rerouted roads and a massive new building rising around you. Under construction since 2014, the new Salt Lake City International Airport has finally reached its cruising altitude and is coming in for a landing on September 15, 2020. The grand opening will include a single central terminal, new greeting area, parking garage, and concourse. If you’re flying into Salt Lake City during this reconstruction process, don’t worry. Since the new airport is being built adjacent to the old one, it will open seamlessly overnight without interrupting operations. The project’s second phase could disrupt passengers more, but is not set for completion until 2024. .
