This year, through GDS-Movement Innovation Awards, DMOs/ CVBs around the world showcased their sustainable solutions.

These organisations are raising the bar with radical initiatives that support their journey towards greater regenerative destination management. We encourage all destinations to be inspired and explore ways to adapt these solutions to their unique situations.
