In the Destination Management world, being a Member of ADMEI is a really exciting achievement. We are proud members of ADMEI and are looking forward to their Annual Conference in Puerto Rico in January, 2020!
A bit about ADMEI
ADMEI stands for Association of Destination Management Executives International. This organization “establishes DMC standards and best practices, supports excellence and ethical business practices and promotes the value of destination management companies to the meetings industry.” They are the only non-profit working to support and certify destination management companies (DMC) like ours.
One key thing that ADMEI provides is the Destination Management Certified Professional (DMCP) program. This certification is achieved by program managers and event planners that are able to demonstrate the highest level of knowledge and commitment to their profession. To become a DMCP, you must have years of experience in the field, take courses for continued education, and pass an exam. Having a DMCP on staff means that your company becomes an Accredited DMC, or ADMC.
Here at Absolutely Charleston, we have TWO DMCPs on staff! This is a major achievement, and we are currently the only Destination Management Company in Charleston to have more than one DMCP!
