From Our Members

Destinations International is the definitive resource for destination marketing professionals worldwide. That is our promise. But don't just take our word for it. Here is what a few of your fellow industry colleagues had to say about their Destinations International membership.

Destinations International offers unsurpassed professional developmental and education resources for destination marketing professionals and their organizations. Their marketing and networking opportunities provide productive platforms for destinations to celebrate successes and share best practices. As the destination marketing organization for the United States, Brand USA is proud to work with Destinations International and our U.S. destination partners to help promote the United States as a premier travel destination.

Chris Thompson, CDME, President & CEO, Brand USA

Our partnership with Destinations International helps us keep connected to our peers and to the latest thinking in our broad and diverse industry. We use Destinations International content to help train new employees especially if they are new to our industry. And those that have been around a while also find constant benefit in the content and connectedness Destinations International provides. 

Johanne Belanger, President and CEO, Tourism Toronto

Looking back, I can see that my most beneficial professional connections and friendships began with Destinations International. The people who have impacted my career and my thinking on destination marketing and management I met through the Association. Organizationally, the same is true. We look to the Association for the research and best practices that help refine our work on behalf of our communities.
