The last few years have brought old and new challenges to the relevance of destinations marketing and/or management organizations (DMOs) raising the question, what does it take to be a destination organization of the Future? At Destinations International's Annual Convention 2022, we discussed these issues during the Global All-Stars keynote session and in other breakout sessions with experts and DMO leaders from both North America and Europe. Here are a set of resources from Mies Partnership and Coraggio Group to help review your role, responsibilities and capabilities as a destination organization of the future.
