“The Visit Oakland team is extremely honored to receive such a prestigious national accreditation,” said Alison Best, CDME, President & CEO, Visit Oakland. “DMAP is the gold standard by which destination marketing organizations are now measured and we know that this accreditation symbolizes the high standard that our stakeholders and visitors are seeking.”

The official DMAP accreditation certificate was presented to Visit Oakland Monday evening at DMAI’s Annual Convention in Las Vegas.

The DMAP accreditation is an arduous process comprised of rigorous standards set forth by the professional destination marketing community. Evaluating standards include a variety of topics including; Governance, Finance, Management, Human Resources, Technology, Visitor Services, Group Services, Sales, Communications, Brand Management, Destination Development, Research/Marketing Intelligence, Innovation and Stakeholder Relationships.
