Here are some frequently asked questions.
What IS A DEStination Management Company?
A Destination Management Company (DMC) is a professional services company that specializes in the planning and implementation of events, activities, tours, transportation, and other services related to travel and tourism. DMCs work closely with their clients, such as meeting planners, corporations, and individuals, to create customized itineraries and experiences that meet their specific needs and preferences.
DOES it cost more to work with a DMC than to plan my event on my own?
It depends on how you look at it. Our expert team works daily with local suppliers and professionals resulting in our receiving volume pricing on services like transportation and catering as well as others. Additionally, we don’t spend extra time calling around to find information you need, we have the resources at our fingertips. Our reduced partner pricing as well as the valuable time you save are well worth our event management fees.
Do you only work in Huntsville & Madison County?
Not at all. Events and experiences are what we love to do! Wherever those take us, we are excited to go. Need event planning, transportation, experience curation elsewhere in Alabama, the U.S., or the world? We are here to help.
Do you own buses and motorcoaches?
We do not. We work together with the most reliable and professional local, regional, and national transportation companies to coordinate and deliver your event transportation needs.
Are you a Convention & Visitors Bureau?
We are not. Destination Huntsville is thrilled to support our local visitors bureau, hotels, and other community partners. While these agencies and businesses are tasked with promoting our community and selling event planners on why Huntsville/Madison County is the place to be, Destination Huntsville is here to make sure you and your attendees have the best possible, locally-curated, tailored to your audience experiences while you are on the ground.
