Destination Showcase could become even more relevant for event professionals in the coming years due to a new collaboration between Destinations International and PCMA.

At Destinations International’s Annual Conference 2019 at America’s Center Convention Complex in St. Louis this week, company President and CEO Don Welsh and PCMA President and CEO Sherrif Karamat announced that the two organizations would work together to “evolve and elevate.” That’s the theme for the #AC19StLouis event—the annual Destination Showcase, a one-day event that connects business event organizers with convention and visitors bureaus each February in Washington, D.C.

The new joint venture will tap into the educational offerings of PCMA and the commerce opportunities of Destinations International. In 2021, the event will be redesigned with an emphasis on being more interactive.

“We are thrilled about this new element of collaboration with our long-time partner, as it will further Destinations International’s work in communicating the extensive services that our members provide to meeting planners throughout their event planning process,” Welsh said.
