The roadshow also allows attendees the opportunity to win extraordinary prizes showcasing the all-encompassing DMS network of not only DMCs, but partnerships with major airlines, hotel chains and tourism boards.

Dedicated to facilitating meaningful connections, managing director Marissa Fernandez shares, “Year on year our DMC partners commit to visiting Australia and New Zealand to establish and maintain their relationships with our valued clients. Their understanding of our market is a testament to the success of not only DMS Connect, but our business and prime position in the market”.
