Destination Marketing Association West

More than 150 destination marketing organizations make up DMA West. They looked to improve coordination and collaboration across their vast network to be more effective and to provide more value to their association members. They relied on TEI to lead them through this complex process.

Convening a full day workshop with the DMA-W Board and associated Foundation, TEI brokered a conversation that self-evaluated relationships with members, donors, and industry organizations. CEOs shared ideas, critiqued positions, and evaluated potential new ventures. TEI weaved the concept of partnership into each discussion – resulting in fresh new approaches and collaborations.


DMA West forged new partnerships and elevated the DMA West brand. They re-prioritized objectives and made program offerings more relevant to membership, resulting in increased on-board expertise, more industry influence, and increased revenue.
