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. 


Place Branding for All

BakerDestination Marketing pros that don't have a copy of Bill Baker's initial tome (or its second edition) on the subject of Destination Marketing on their bookshelf have been, sadly, operating with half a deck. But, never fear...Bill is back with his latest effort, "Place Branding for Small Cities, Regions and Downtowns."

And, for those of us that highlighted and sticky-noted our dog-eared copies...the new book expands upon the tenants of the original with new case studies and an updated attitude to reflect the ever-evolving dynamic that is Destination Marketing. Indeed, our friend Reyn Bowman (former CEO of the Durham CVB) said, "Bill has taken a great book and, unexpectedly, made it better."

You can find the new masterpiece here. And, for a deeper dive into the mind of Bill and what you'll find in the new book (plus a big reveal), check out his interview with Florian Kaefer in The Place Brand Observer.

Congratulations, Bill...and thanks for all you do your our industry!
