ABOUT US

Two former DMO professionals, have taken their unique experience working for CVBs on both the sales and marketing side to create an agency specializing in meetings marketing for destinations.

We ONLY work with DMOs. We’re brick and mortared in The Sunshine State and one of the fastest growing companies in Jacksonville & on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies in the US.  With 100+ combined years of DMO and hotel sales and marketing experience under our belts, we develop marketing solutions for some of the coolest destinations in the country; however, you won’t find a behemoth of an agency here.

We’re a crew of DMO veterans, digital design artists, critical thinkers and talented, hungry professionals kickin’ ass in our respective disciplines.

Our client family gets ever-evolving work because behind the scenes and screens we’re continually challenging, teaching and learning from each other.

And we’re doing it all for you.

With 10 years of DMO experience as an Interim President & CEO, Deputy Director and Vice President of Marketing for various DMO's, Mya uses her expertise to shape marketing strategies & solutions for the agency’s roster of clients.

MAE DEMDAM

VP OF MARKETING STRATEGY

Mae creates and oversees the marketing and strategic processes (actually more than we know what to do with) for the organization that leads to acquisition, retention, and engagement of DMO campaigns. Mae’s past experience working for other agencies included managing many hotel's digital marketing campaigns. No, she is not recruitable.

KIM RITTEN

VP OF BUSINESS RELATIONS

As a tourism sales and marketing professional, Kim qualifies and listens so she understands a DMO's needs to ensure our services are a good fit. If so, she develops custom programs of work that will take their meetings marketing to the next level. Having worked for several DMOs and various hotels, Kim is what we call a thick-skinned rebel.
