Door County Visitor Bureau Awarded Accreditation

• The Door County Visitor Bureau (DCVB) announced that it has been awarded accreditation from the Destination Marketing Accreditation Program (DMAP).

DMAP is an international accreditation program developed by the Washington D.C. based Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI). In earning the DMAP accreditation, destination marketing organizations (DMOs) communicate to their members, community, visitors and potential visitors that their DMO has attained a significant measure of excellence.

To become accredited a DMO is required to provide evidence of compliance with 58 mandatory standards and 30 voluntary standards. The standards set by DMAP cover a wide variety of topics including governance, finance, management, human resources, technology, visitor services, group services, sales, communications, membership, brand management, destination development, research/market intelligence, innovation, and stakeholder relationships.

The DCVB joins only 120 other DMOs that are accredited. For additional information on DMAP visit

Second Place Winner: Details Hair Innovations.

• This year’s Holly Days festivities in Egg Harbor included the addition of a Christmas tree decorating contest where businesses were encouraged to participate and decorate a tree in any way desired.

Some trees were literally blown away due to high winds the day before the competition; however, out of more than a dozen entries, the top three “Star” awards went to Alpine Resort, Details Hair Innovations and Main Street Shops.

Judges included Morgan Mann, 1 Design Source; Melinda Johnson, Door County Publishing Company; and Trissa Crowley, Fish Creek Information Center.
