NewseumTo make your conference more appealing to budget-minded attendees, consider tapping into the local destination marketing organization. DMOs will work with local vendors to arrange special convention discounts for restaurants, retail stores, attractions and public transportation. Destination DC, for example, recently rolled out the "Show Your Badge" program (washington.org/showyourbadge), which entitles meeting delegates to exclusive discounts from participating partners, such as the Newseum (left).
