Global DMC Partners congratulates BBC Destination Management’s director of sales, David Room, DMCP, CMP on his successful term as the ADMEI Board President. Rome served as board president from Feb. 13, 2016 through Jan. 21, 207.

“I have always known David to be an inspiring and impactful leader throughout the many years I’ve worked with him,” says Catherine Chaulet, president, Global DMC Partners. “He has constantly taken an active role in driving innovation and education across the DMC industry—and across Global DMC Partners—so he was the perfect fit for the 2016-2017 ADMEI Board President. The entire partnership is so proud of him for all that he has accomplished.”

Rome’s main goal as president was to focus on education, particularly education for international destination management companies. In order to achieve this, he built in complimentary and accessible education programs into the ADMEI Membership.

“It’s the ongoing initiative and drive that David, Cindy and Robert demonstrate that will continue to show the incredible value that DMCs have on the entire meetings industry,” says Chaulet.
