Hosts Global Honored as one of the 2018 Top 25 DMCs

Hosts Global is proud to announce that we have been named as one of the Top 25 DMCs for 2018 by Special Events Magazine. This honor is bestowed upon the 25 DMCs who are trailblazers in the meetings industry. Hosts leads the industry with Emergency Preparedness and GDPR Initiatives.

“Hosts launched our H Forward initiative which in part encompasses innovating ahead of the ask, as demonstrated in part with the work Marty MacKay, President of Global Alliance has accomplished around GDPR” as stated by our CEO Jennifer Patino. Marty comments,  “Under GDPR, the client/DMC relationship now encompasses the roles of data controller–client–and data processor–DMC. As such, we have new responsibilities to each other, requiring new conversations to ensure we stay on top of our respective data chains and provide exemplary experiences for our guests. Change management is never easy. Having to confront legacy data systems, clean them up and manage them in new ways–as required by GDPR–is a monumental undertaking”. How we do business is as important as what we do, at Hosts we get ahead of the ask/need and invest time and resources to deliver on our promise to our clients.
