Dowson, who started out at Trailfinders in 1996 before moving to Emirates Airline and then Sofitel Hotels, has left DMC representation company MM and Company after eight years to set up his own business.
On his decision to leave MM and Company, Dowson said: "While at MM and Company I learnt a huge amount from David Marks, whose vast knowledge of the sector has been enlightening and a great, positive influence on my career. I have been privileged to represent many excellent destination management companies."
Dowson launches The DMC Advantage with Factor 3 Events, which has been operating across Spain for ten years.
The DMC Advantage will represent hand-picked, boutique DMCs. He told C&IT: "I believe that through my deep understanding of the needs of UK event planners, I can hone my partners’ offerings correctly to get the best from the destination. The result is a prompt, creative proposal delivered with style."
