Global DMC Partners Announces Partner of the Year Awards

Global DMC Partners recognized three top DMCs in their network by awarding them with their 2015 Partner of the Year Award at Global DMC Partners Connection 2015 in Lima, Peru on June 28. Dallas-based, iDesignMeetings won the U.S. Partner of the Year award, and the International Partner of the Year Award was presented to Panorama Tours & Travel serving Austria and Hungary, and Universal Travel Services serving Turkey.

Global DMC Partners President, Catherine Chaulet, recognized each DMC for their ability to create one- of-a-kind programs, their consistent flawless program execution, glowing client feedback, and always going above and beyond with all clients. “With absolute perfection, each DMC award winner exudes our network-wide passion for creativity, our focus on quality, and our global reach,” stated Chaulet. “Bravo to Kevin Hoque and Gina Compton with iDesignMeetings, Stefan Herzl with Panorama Tours & Travel, and Mustafa Yalcin with Universal Travel Services for running such talented DMCs.” The Partner of the Year Awards are presented annually to a U.S.-based DMC and an Internationally-based DMC at the Global DMC Partners Connection. DMC award winners must meet specific selection criteria set by Global DMC Partners: creativity, quality/operational excellence, top customer satisfaction survey ratings, and contribution to the Partnership.

Chaulet said, “These DMCs set a perfect example of what it means to be a strategic partner for our clients. iDesignMeetings, Panorama Tours & Travel, and Universal Travel Services achieve this each and every time by becoming an extension of our clients’ team.”
