European Cities Marketing published "The DMMO Covid-19 Continuity Checklist - An ECM Guide for Sustainable Recovery". Elaborated in partnership with toposophy, this guide will prove to be a tool for dmmo’s in this unprecedented time to face new challenges and create A New Tomorrow.This DMMO Continuity Checklist is part of a series of activities ECM is undertaking to assist its members to navigate the challenges of today and prepare for "A New Tomorrow". ECM launched a series of strategic communications: webinars, collaborative dashboard, insights, analysis, best practices, with purpose to share ideas and challenges, and envision together a new future of destinations rebuilt, and conventions reimagined.
Petra Stusek, ECM President, declared: "At ECM we are continuing to empower the conversation with our members to support the whole tourism and meetings industry. We have been exchanging knowledge, new practices, but this report gives more of an overall perspective, recovery milestones, visions and approaches, and of course a precious Continuity Checklist for DMMOs". "This practical and pertinent tool for a sustainable recovery is presented in three stages: Response, Recovery and Resilience. While keeping the dialogue, we want together as DMMO's to take the right decisions and learn from the experience of others. It spans an extensive period precisely because the process of recovery is expected to be long, uneven and unpredictable", Petra Stusek concluded.
