Important tips on finding the best Destination Management Company in Vietnam and Asia
When your business works with a Destination Management Company (DMC), it should make your life a whole lot easier. Here are our insider tips on finding a DMC in Asia that does just this.
The best DMCs have incredible local knowledge about the destinations they work in, and offer seamless logistical services that span from accommodation and transfers to organising international events. The B2B nature of DMCs mean they become an extension of your own company, working in a bespoke way to deliver exactly what you need with professionalism and expertise.
Asia DMCs offer a range of services and areas of proficiency – but just how do you find the right one for you?
The nature of working with a DMC in Asia means a large portion of your business relationship will be at a distance. It is therefore fundamental to satisfy yourself of the DMC’s business and tourism credentials. Ensure the Asia DMC you want to work with has all the relevant licenses – and ask to see a copy of them too.
Trusted DMC – Mr Linh’s Adventures holds both a business license and an operator license issued by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT).
Businesses need to work with DMCs that have unparalleled local expertise in order to deliver the highest quality events and experiences. Whether working with a DMC is part of a company’s MICE programme or part of everyday travel for global executives, what is delivered by the DMC reflects directly on your company. It is therefore of paramount importance to check the DMC really does have the expertise it claims. Many DMCs have a consumer side of the business too – so checking online reviews on websites such as TripAdvisor is great for getting a feeling for the DMC’s credentials. Also look at the profiles of the individuals who run the company, and ask for references from other companies they have worked with too.
Trusted DMC – Mr Linh’s Adventures is a Vietnam-based company that has been operating since 2008. Run by local people with exceptional tourism qualifications and global insights – the team has access to services and preferential rates not widely available elsewhere. Reviews and feedback from both the B2C and B2B parts of the business are consistently exceptional.
List of services
The DMC you choose to work with in Vietnam or Asia should be able to handle every aspect of your Asia travel and MICE plans. This includes sourcing and booking accommodation, arranging transport and transfers, meet and greet services, running activities and excursions, sourcing and booking venues for meetings, conferences and special events – plus more. Check the DMC you’re interested in working with offers all of these services, and any additional support you know you will need. Finding out at a later date that the DMC doesn’t offer something that is key to your company will become much more time-consuming for you.
