DMO stands for Destination Marketing Organization and is sometimes referred to as destination management organization. The tourism industry is a trillion-dollar global business all vying for potential visitors to experience their destination. DMOs bring together entities that serve all aspects of the visitor experience from lodging, restaurants, attractions, and retailers to work collectively on what makes their community stand out as a tourist destination. The DMO also works with travel trade partners to provide travelers with information about the destination. Destinations with a strong DMO will be competitive, have increased visibility, and have a strong economic impact in their community.
