President's Message

Hello and thank you for being a member of ADMEI, the Association of Destination Management Executives International. It is my pleasure to be serving as your President for 2018-2019. It is an honor and I am extremely fortunate to be working with an extraordinary Board of Directors and Executive Committee.

The goal of the board has always been to make education a primary focus, and this year is no different. Building on our education platform, we have added a very successful Emergency Preparedness Certificate Program (EPCP) to our agenda and that is also proving to not only be a benefit to our members but also bringing ADMEI into the spotlight as the industry expert. Partnered with some improvements in our membership structure, and enhanced visibility in the MICE world, we hope to continue what has been remarkable growth in ADMEI both in the US and Globally. As ADMEI becomes more and more recognized as the voice of the DMC's not only to our ADMEI members, but also to the hospitality industry including incentive clients, corporations, associations, other Industry Organizations such as SITE, and all others involved in the MICE industry, the role of our Industry Relations board members will be so important in 2018.

Above all else, this organization is nothing without you, our members. Please know that myself, as well as our entire Board, has an open door policy and we welcome all feedback from our members. We also have plenty of room on our committees for those wishing to get even more involved in ADMEI. I am thrilled to announce our 2019 Annual Conference in Houston on 7 - 9 February, so please block those dates on your calendar. It is an opportunity for ADMEI to give back to areas that have been affected by mother nature in 2017, and a chance to show the world that they are in business.

I look forward to an amazing year for ADMEI, and thank you for entrusting me with its leadership.


Marty MacKay, DMCP
