DESTINATION CENTRAL OREGON
is it a place?
Destination Central Oregon was originally founded by locals to support groups as they visited the area. DCO did this by providing access and assistance with all the best local outdoor, lodging, decor, recreating and dining vendors. Companies such as this in the Meetings and Events industry are called Destination Management Companies, or shortened to DMCs.
As the area has changed over the past several years, we have seen a need to change and evolve as well. This change of mindset has come partly because of overcrowded trails, segways zooming down sidewalks, strange vehicles slowly moving down streets, helicopters buzzing trails and motor coaches navigating roundabouts. Most Central Oregon towns were not designed to support large numbers of tourists. Don't even think about asking a brewery to set aside a private room for your group's tasting event. They didn't build private rooms.
Central Oregon is a DESTINATION, but groups may be best suited to stay on their resort properties - which is probably ok with the locals to be honest. Destination Central Oregon is about nature - peace - quiet - enjoyment of the natural space - the DESTINATION you really want to find here is a state of mind, not a place.
Respect for our natural environment is very important to DCO like all Oregonians. We always put sustainability and respect for the environment first and are always looking for ways to educate new residents on how we do this.
As we evolve as a company, we encourage input from any of you that have landed on our page in deciding what Destination Central Oregon should be ....
as a company and a Destination.
