Destinations International was founded in 1915 in St. Louis by sales representatives of 28 different U.S. destinations. Then called the Association of Convention Secretaries, the organization had many purposes, one being to share information between communities about meetings and conventions that rotated around the country and improve the profession. They did this by exchanging what they called “blue sheets,” which contained information about the rotating conventions in order to help each other get more information and therefore attract these conventions to their destinations.

Take a look at how this sharing evolved through the years to where it is today as the next generation of MINT+ begins to roll out.
