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. 


We’re Not as Noble as Hoped

220px-Panera_Bread_logo.svgA few years ago, a handful of Panera Bread locations shifted to a "pay what you can" model to test a concept that would encourage patrons to pay a little more, knowing that they'd be paving the way for area homeless and poor to get a meal.

Kudos to the company for attempting such a bold experiement...and for allowing the financial hemorrhaging to go on for six years.

But, later this week, the Boston location (the last one of the test stores) will shut its doors.

Guess we just can't withstand the temptation to get something for nothing...
