Global DMC Partners and SongDivision Form Strategic Partnership

Global DMC Partners, the only truly global network of independent Destination Management Companies (DMCs) and sales professionals supporting planners worldwide, announces a new strategic partnership with SongDivision, the world’s premier experiential music agency. The strategic partnership will allow Global DMC Partners to better serve their clients by providing meeting planners with even more unique, creative options for their global meetings and events. 

Sir Richard Branson called SongDivision, “A great company helping connect employees and customers using the power of music.” Founded in 2003, SongDivision is called on by leading organizations such as Microsoft, Pfizer and PwC to engage, entertain and educate audiences in four continents using the universal power of music. Groups from 10 to 10,000+ write and perform original songs with musicians who’ve worked with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Prince and Taylor Swift.

In combination with their 55+ DMC Partners that serve over 100 destinations worldwide, Global DMC Partners will offer SongDivision as a global event service for team building activities, conference opening and closing, keynote speaking, corporate entertainment, music production, lip sync battles, and rock and roll game shows. SongDivision prides themselves on customizing programs for all types of attendee demographics – introverts and extroverts, large groups and small groups, scientists and sales executives, baby boomers and millennials – while ensuring they stay within any size meeting budget.

Catherine Chaulet, President of Global DMC Partners, explained that the decision to partner with SongDivision is largely due to their ability to incorporate music, creativity and fun into their crowd-pleasing teambuilding entertainment. During the Global DMC Partners Connection 2015 in Lima, Peru, SongDivision led a terrific opening teambuilding exercise which tasked audience members to come up with the lyrics to create an organic GDP anthem.  “Clients were engaged and excited right from the moment that SongDivision took the stage,” said Chaulet. “And to top it off, they also managed to incorporate some local Peruvian flair into the entertainment.” 

SongDivision’s Founder, Andy Sharpe, states, "It’s a perfect fit. Global DMC Partners demands the best for their clients all around the world, and we’re in a unique position to deliver it to them. With teams across the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pacific, SongDivision provides high quality, customized programs that combine local expertise with over a decade of international experience.”  

Sharpe goes on to say, “We love the creativity, passion and professionalism of the Global DMC Partners team, and we’re thrilled about this strategic partnership with them.”

“Our entire team is absolutely ecstatic about this partnership and so pleased to have the opportunity to expand our offerings with a company that upholds Global DMC Partners’ high quality of service standards,” Chaulet concludes.
