The global pandemic has changed how we all do business; how we all plan for thfuture. As DMOproz is all about the future…that has caused us to rethink how we can assist Destination Marketing Organizations as they re-imagine their future. While we have a few in-person, on site gigs scheduled in Q4 of 2020, the majority of our work has shifted online through Zoom or other platforms. While never as much fun as meeting in person, we have (as you have) become very adept at successfully getting stuff done online and from home. Here’s what we can virtually provide your DMO as we traverse the slow slog towards recovery;

We authored the Destinations International position paper on Board Diversity. It’s something about which we are passionate and about which we believe you you need to be intentional. In this online workshop, we work with your Board to develop a customized matrix with which to engage a more diverse community in order to position the DMO to lead the community conversation on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Those that have availed themselves of our Strategic Planning services know that we have, for years, urged DMOs to diversify their revenue streams. We were more prescient than we could have known. Relying on Room Tax as a primary source of revenue has been shown for the folly it was. So what next? DMOproz has a boatload of suggestions for your Board.


Despite the pandemic, Boards continue to evolve and welcome new advocates to their ranks. But, are they truly ready to lead, participate and engage? We can’t tell you the number of Board members we’ve worked with that were absolutely lost and unable to contribute their considerable talents because they weren’t properly onBOARDed. In this worksop, we can fix that for your organization.

If you follow us, you know that we believe we work too hard to save the “M’ in DMO. Is it Marketing or Management…or both? We think a new letter is more appropriate. What our organizations are? Destination Leadership Organizations…and we’re ready to virtually inspire your Board, Staff and Stakeholders to embrace this new concept for your community.


These are times none of were trained for nor were prepared. Not that we have all the answers, but we are in contact with hundreds of industry peers and experts on a weekly basis. Maybe we’ve heard of a solution you have yet to discover. Maybe our 25 years of consulting DMOs can help you divine your next step. We offer a free 30-minute consultation to see if a coaching relationship makes sense. At the least, we offer a shoulder to cry upon or a platform on which to bounce ideas.

There will be a future for DMOs. How we get there will be different for every one of us. With our experience with over 200 DMOs across the Americas, we can work with Board and Professional Staff to ideate what’s next; to suggest concepts that maybe haven’t yet been considered. An online workshop with DMOproz is guaranteed to inspire innovative thought and ideation.

As you prepare to present your case for future investment from public and private sector sources, DMOproz can proof your position paper, deck or speech to make sure it resonates with your audience. Using Destinations International’s 2020 Lexicon and our over 30 years of legislative experience, we can hone your message into a symphony.
