The Power and Role of a Contemporary Destination Organization

By Don Welsh, President and CEO of Destinations International

 

For decades, destination organizations around the world, particularly those known as convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs), have been the trusted source for meeting planners when considering a destination for a convention or meeting.

48 Hours in Nashville, Tennessee

...with Destination Musick City, a DMC Network Affiliate

And while chart-topping recordings made here are streamed and downloaded 24/7 all over the world, live music is just as important. With more than 180 music venues, there’s something for everyone from pop, rock, country, gospel, and bluegrass, to jazz, classical, contemporary Christian, blues and soul.

MICE Women in Leadership

By Rhonda Brewer, Chair of SITE’s Women in Leadership Initiative

 

The Webster dictionary definition of leadership is the act or an instance of leading. When you google leadership definitions or qualities, you get quite a lot of different views but in summary, I find these are at the top: trust, vision, serving, empathy, perspective, action, managing, respect, team building, and continual improvement.
