RISE is CFO by design’s new powerful, data driven tool and the answer to your diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. Members of Destinations International will have access to exclusive early adopter subscription pricing for a limited time.
Our goal with RISE is to provide economic opportunity to historically underrepresented businesses. In short, RISE will aid a DMO in identifying not only their spend with diverse vendors, but also with their local small-business community. In addition to identifying the composition on vendors, RISE will provide a vendor directory that will allow DMOs to more effectively source opportunities with diverse businesses who understand their industry. RISE will also dive into a DMOs local partner business community, providing meeting planners with an easily accessible directory of local diverse businesses in the tourism industry, aiding their efforts to support diverse businesses.
As a commitment to our ongoing partnership with Destinations International, a portion of all subscription fees will be donated to support the work of the Destinations International Foundation. To learn more about RISE and how it can support your DEI journey, contact us at [email protected].

As the travel industry rebounds, destinations are struggling almost universally to fill open job positions. To provide destinations with relevant and actionable insights, Destinations International and Tourism Economics have partnered to launch a high-frequency analysis of workforce dynamics for communities within the SYMPHONY intelligence platform. This comprehensive tracker provides data for the local workforce available, including insights on wages, the type and quality of jobs, race, and other measures of labor market dynamics by sector. This is now available as a module within the Symphony intelligence center, allowing destination organization teams to efficiently aggregate, analyze, and share their entire data ecosystem.
