The DMC Network Celebrates Third Annual Exchange in Indianapolis, Indiana

The DMC Network Celebrates Third Annual Exchange in Indianapolis, Indiana

The Third Annual DMC Network Exchange took place August 23 – 26, 2017 with 110 clients and DMC Network partners coming together in the wonderful city of Indianapolis, Indiana. Accent Indy, the DMC Network partner for the destination, created and hosted the group in their hometown state.

Previously held in Los Cabos and Lake Tahoe, the three-day educational and networking event included unique experiences at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where guests were invited to ride around the track with professional drivers and kick a field goal at Lucas Oil Stadium. Attendees also got to experience ‘Indy like a local’ through a variety of planned afternoon activities that included a bike tour and Segway tour through Indy’s cultural trail, visiting top local Breweries and golfing in the sunshine, to name just a few. In addition, the DMC Network partnered with Teachers Treasures to create a give-back experience for the attendees that provided much needed school supplies and backpacks to the community of Indianapolis.

Educational sessions on the US Economy with Economist Chris Kuehl and a panel discussion with Michael Dominguez (Chief Sales Officer of MGM Resorts International), Leonard Hoops, (President and CEO of Visit Indy), Kevin Hinton, (Chief Executive Officer for SITE) and Darrell Tamosuinas, (President of Teneo Hospitality Group) on crisis management, current trends and destination marketing ensured both DMC Network partners and their clients were given plenty of food for thought.

The city of Indianapolis truly shone during the program with exceptional dining experiences at St. Elmos and Char Blue as well as signature themed evening events including Indypalooza and a Classic 80’s dinner with guest appearances by “Prince” and “Michael Jackson”!

The DMC Network’s tagline, ‘’We’re there for you!” came into special relief at the event as an expression of each partner’s commitment to their clients but also to their destination. “DMC Network members share a deeply held conviction that our brand promise has to be more than mere lip service. It must be lived out in how we treat our people, our teams, our clients, and particularly, our destination. This clearly means giving back to the communities we depend upon for the work we do” said Dan Tavrytzky, Managing Director of the DMC Network.

Accent Indy President, Shannon Gardiner, DMCP added “In the case of Indianapolis, we invited all of our guests to participate in a healthful “Rise & Shine” program each morning that included walking tours of the city, canal by sunrise and gentle flow Yoga. During the program, several local non-profit associations were invited to meet with the DMC Network team and Industry press in an effort to give profile to the amazing work that is being done locally to make Indianapolis the warm and welcoming city that it is today. Teacher’s Treasures, Dress for Success, Back on My Feet Indianapolis, Keep Indianapolis Beautiful and PUP (People for Urban Progress) were all a part of this year’s program.” At the end of an action packed, thought provoking and truly “purposeful” 3 days, Matt Cuevas, incoming Chair for the DMC Network in 2018 officially announced the destination for the Fourth Annual DMC Network Client Exchange: Panama, June 28th – July 1st 2018.
