You would think that with at least 2300 destination marketing organizations worldwide, there would be a broader understanding of what a DMO like DCVB does. Yup, there are 1100 or so in North America alone, another 500 in Europe, 400 in Asia and 300 in Latin America.

With how quickly Destination Marketing Association International is truly becoming International, I can see how within a decade or two, there will be more members outside North American than within. Some, like Charles-Eric Vilain XIIII of Lille, already serve on the DMAI Board. Lille is also accredited putting it in the top 3% or so of DMO’s worldwide.
