Best Practices in Destination Management

After applying to take the DMCP test I ordered Best Practices in Destination Management and I was blown away by the amount of useful and relevant information in the book. I have been running a DMC for over 20 years and have learned by trial and error the right and wrong way to run my company. To find out that there is a well written book that has the answers (or at least the best practices) for almost every situation makes me feel I spent a lot of time that could have been avoided. We think we have secret formulas for running shuttles or pricing out tours but there are a lot of people in the same boat. These people have shared those secrets and helped put together a comprehensive manual for an industry that I didn’t think could be categorized and defined. My thanks to all the ADMEI folks who took the time to help out our industry.
