Columbia CVB Achieves Reaccreditation Through International Destination Marketing Association

January 15, 2021

The Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau (CCVB) was awarded the Destination Marketing Accreditation Program (DMAP) seal by Destinations International in recognition of the destination marketing organization’s (DMO) commitment to industry excellence and meeting the industry standard for performance and accountability of DMOs around the world. The CCVB has been accredited through DMAP since 2015 and underwent a full reaccreditation process in 2020.

Since its inception in January 2007, the accreditation program requires a DMO to successfully comply with a multitude of standards that span a variety of performance areas to gain this momentous achievement. The globally recognized DMAP serves as a visible industry distinction that defines quality and performance standards in destination marketing and management.
