Ovation Global DMC has launched a strategic partner programme to provide destination management services for its corporate, association and agency clients at locations where it currently doesn’t have a wholly owned office.
Strategic partners, typically, will be the leading DMC in a destination and are selected by Ovation according to such criteria as industry reputation and legacy, operational excellence and efficiencies.
To date, exclusive strategic partners have been selected for Greece, Hungary, Malta, Morocco, Poland and Turkey.
Discussions are in progress to appoint strategic partners for Australia, the Baltic States, Costa Rica, Croatia, Finland and Portugal.
In 2008, Ovation established a strategic alliance with The DMC Network, a consortium of DMCs providing services at 36 locations across the US and Canada. This brings the total number of Ovation destinations to 60, including 18 wholly owned offices.
“To be truly global and to offer a truly global service to our clients, Ovation needs to be in 100 locations around the world. We will achieve this by a combination of start-ups, acquisitions and expansion of our strategic partner programme,” said managing director, Patrick Delaney.
Ovation Global is represented in Canada by Select Group Marketing.
