President of Global DMC Partners, Catherine Chaulet, references past accomplishments of the Customer Advisory Board to project future success for the 2017 Board.
“We identified, created, and implemented important partnership-wide initiatives last year in large part due to the guidance we received from our 2016 Board. I am extremely confident that we will achieve the same, if not greater, achievements in 2017 with the addition of our new Board Members who will bring fresh perspectives and insights,” states Chaulet.
The 2016 Customer Advisory Board assisted Global DMC Partners with their Global Standardization Program to offer meeting planners a more effective and streamlined way to procure destination management services worldwide. Board Members collaborated with Global DMC Partners to develop three tools as part of the Program: the Global DMC Partners Standardized Contract, Proposal Guidelines, and Event Safety Plan (ESP) – a template that enables planners, DMCs, and vendors to work together to create a contingency plan before an event takes place. The ESP can be applied to any program in any destination.
