DMAI Accredited Organizations

What is the Destination Marketing Accreditation Program?

DMAI’s Destination Marketing Accreditation Program (DMAP) is an independent international entity that defines quality and performance practices in destination marketing and recognizes DMOs that meet or exceed 58 mandatory and 30 voluntary industry standards.

What is the purpose of DMAI’s accreditation program?

  • To increase credibility with all customers by demonstrating that a DMO has achieved a level of excellence in serving customer needs,
  • To provide customer and stakeholder trust in the DMO, and
  • To standardize how business is transacted from one destination to the next.

How does accreditation affect meeting planners and their choices?

Meeting planners working with an accredited DMO know they can expect consistent products and services, including:

  • Qualified lead distribution method, destination information, and site inspection facilitation based on customer needs;
  • Business referral, attendance promotion, and post-event evaluation services of the customer experience for primary markets; and
  • Professional communications and procedural efficiency and effectiveness by staff trained with customer service expertise and preparedness.
