Funded by visitor tax revenues, visitor bureaus, also known as Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs), control the bulk of the marketing budget available to benefit local, travel-industry-supported businesses. TRIPinfo works directly with local destination marketing organizations (DMOs) to bring online Leisure Group Trip planners together with local organizations – which is your institution. By listing your institution for free as a NARM Association member benefit, your institution already receives a $75 listing on the TRIPinfo website “Attractions” pages!
