How to use the destinations UNLIMITED Website to help plan your event
Our website is primarily designed as an operations manual, providing information needed for your research into destination's unknown to you and in turn, helping to establish suitable destination's prior to you producing the finished presentation for your client. May we suggest that you have a good look at our website www.dudmc.com for further details? Much of the information provided we consider of great use to¬†you on a daily basis.¬† Other information¬†may only be needed once in a while, but it really will save you time, effort and stress knowing where to find such information at a moment's notice.
WHY NOT TAKE A LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING POINTERS TO HELP YOU GET STARTED¬†AND TO¬†SEE JUST HOW MUCH TIME WE CAN SAVE YOU.
FINDING A DMC
DMCs can be found in one of two ways. The first is through the DMC Worldwide Link¬†on the home page of our website www.dudmc.com. All of our¬†Partners DMCs have been fully¬†researched and must adhere to our strict criteria. Each entry on our website¬†gives full, detailed information on the DMC and the areas they cover. There may be occasions where you require a DMC in a destination¬†where we do not have a DMC, so¬†as an additional part of our service we have listed¬†additional researched DMCs in other regions under the following link Suggested DMCs. Unlike our represented DMCs we cannot guarantee their standard of¬†service, but we are able to confirm from our ongoing research that they are bona-fide DMCs. All¬†we ask of you is to let us know your views on the service that you receive from these particular¬†DMC listings.
Detailed information¬†is available¬†on all the destination's offered by our DMCs; just¬†click on¬†the hotlinks to view the information available. Via the homepage www.dudmc.com select the region of the DMC Partner that you require and then the country, i.e. for Kenya click on¬†African Partnership then Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar. This will¬†then lead you¬†to the¬†detailed information that we have provided¬†on¬†this particular¬†destination, including general¬†details and facts. We also provide specific information on suggested programmes and other venue descriptions.
The GENERAL INFORMATION section provides¬†useful details such as local time, airport, electricity, geography etc. There are also¬†hotlinks to the¬†web-pages offering specific information on the location's climate, passport and visa requirements,¬†health and medical information, public holidays plus a useful currency conversion link. This page also provides you with detailed contact information on each of our Partner DMCs and a link to their websites.
MAKING CONTACT: Using Web Links
RFP: Request for Proposal Link
A response is only as good as the brief received and so an alternative means of requesting a quotation is to use our RFP (Request for Proposal Link) which acts as a useful 'aide-memoire' for covering every conceivable need for your presentations.
The majority of the visuals on our Photo Gallery are made up of our own photographs meaning that there are no royalties to pay when used in conjunction with a presentation featuring one of our Elite Partner DMCs. The photos are laid out in a slide format with high resolution copies available by double clicking on the selected slide. In addition to destination photos, the Photo Gallery also offers airline logos and aircraft images (both on the ground and in the air) of the world's leading airlines. Access to the Photo Gallery is via our home page.
AIRLINE WebSite Links
The Airline - Schedule page offers web links to the world's major airlines. All the airlines are broken down into regions saving you a great deal of time and effort when searching for each airline through the various search engines.
News and Ideas
Nobody likes to receive masses of irrelevant information, however¬†new ideas and reminders of what is available worldwide is the lifeblood of our industry. We have set about providing such information through our printed and e-mail newsletter and¬†sample packages to use for those last minute enquiries.¬† This information has also been provided to keep you abreast of what services are available, inclusive of costs and estimates, as well as destination write-up such as the 'First Impressions' Series on Africa.
To help you keep up-to-date on what is on offer and happening within the regions we represent we have four sections to help you. The first is DMC Hot News giving details¬†such as¬†destination updates etc. The second is DMC Special Offers providing specially negotiated packages offering superb value for money for your clients. The third is any DMC Newsletters we receive. Finally, dU Newsletters offers copies of our printed newsletters in a PDF format.
As many of you are aware, our aim is to provide you with reputable DMCs via a complimentary service. A service which many Event Planners have found to be¬†a major source of information as well as a useful support service over our 19 year history.
We hope we have been able to provide an informative overview of how much help we can provide you with via our website. There is also a lot of other information available including exhibition dates, congresses worldwide, trade associations and much, much more.
Also, within our office we hold example proposals for many of our DMCs and have copies of their Terms & Conditions, as well as Public Liability information. This helps when you need information quickly to send to your client. Although it is not tailor-made it gives you an idea on what the destination has to offer.
Please don't forget that the dU Team are here to assist you.¬† We will continue to support you in the most practical way possible and ultimately provide you with access to some of the most professional DMCs available in a portfolio, which has been¬†built up over the¬†last 19 years.
