Ovation Global DMC represents the natural evolution of a Destination Management Company (DMC) formed in Ireland back in 1993. Initially a two person operation, today Ovation acts as the Destination Services division of MCI Group and is established as a truly global organisation providing associations, corporations and agencies with DMC expertise at 100+ international locations on five continents.

There is one statement that rings as true today as it did when it was initially written for Ovation’s launch back in 1993. We knew that our success would be inextricably linked to our ability to build and leverage the human capital in relationships: internal relationships with our own people; external relationships with supplier-partners and, crucially, with clients.

“People and relationships are the DNA of Ovation. Through our openness, passion and expertise we develop your vision and make it happen”


Corporate Social Responsibility

At Ovation Global DMC we recognise our responsibility to protect and preserve the environment and support development in the locations in which we operate. We understand that not only do we need to “Make it Happen” for our clients but we should do so in a way that grows our business sustainably and responsibly by supporting communities and safeguarding the environment.
Ovation does this through the products and services we offer, producing our events in an environmentally responsible manner and through our social responsibility programs that we offer our clients, helping improve lives for those in need around the world.

Our dedicated sustainability experts and local office champions are not only creating value for our clients but also integrating social and environmental considerations into the day to day operational practices, policies, strategies and projects of our company.

We use internationally created and consensus based Sustainability standards and guidelines for our advanced clients to create truly leading sustainable events whilst ensuring all our suppliers are asked to sign our Ovation code of conduct and staff sign our code of business ethics and embrace our Sustainability Policy.

Strategic Partner Programme

Ovation Global DMC launched its Strategic Partner Programme in July 2009. The Ovation Strategic Partner Programme was introduced to provide DMC services to corporate, association and agency clients at locations where Ovation currently does not have a wholly owned office. Ovation Strategic Partners are, typically, the leading DMC in a destination and are selected by Ovation according to strict criteria including industry reputation and legacy, operational excellence and ability to deliver a truly insightful DMC service beyond mere logistics and tactical delivery.


As industry leaders, Ovation Global DMC plays a key role in the meetings and events world. We are actively involved with many industry associations for the educational and networking benefits they offer. We benefit enormously from these partnerships and affiliations and we believe in giving back what we get out. Our membership and activity in and on behalf of these associations is a further indication of our international industry standing and reputation. Our people are members of associations including Site, MPI, ISES, FICP and ICCA and serve at local, national and international level. On the global team alone, Ovation has provided three Site Presidents over the years and Ovation's Director of Global Sales, is the current Site Vice President.
