As the Destination Marketing arena becomes increasingly complex, DMOproZ strives to provide an easily accessed Knowledge Bank for DMO pros around the world. From White Papers to cutting edge Research to our recommendations on books to make you think, videos to encourage your creativity and blogs to keep you current.

And, we want this to be a two-way street. When you see a great resource that would be a benefit to the DMO collective, shoot it our way and we'll post it up for your peers. 


If I Was in My 20s

TulsaMaybe it's because I know (and love) Tulsa...and many don't. But, the newest move for this Oklahoma city, while not exactly groundbreaking (a select few have offered similar incentives), would so have hooked me as a 20-something.

Honestly? $10,000 and free rent for a year to fall in love with your city? I'd have been all in.

Here's the deal. Many that have never been to Tulsa believe it to be boring. Which is why over 50 corporations there have invested significant money in the DMO there to make the community look cool. It's about workforce development. Now that the ground has been fertilized, it's time to close the deal.

Starting this week, remote workers from all over the country can apply to move to Tulsa in exchange for $10,000 in cash, a housing stipend for a fully-furnished apartment in a building downtown, and a desk at a local co-working space. The program, called Tulsa Remote, is being fully funded by the George Kaiser Family Foundation, a Tulsa-based philanthropy.

Simply brilliant.
