Destination Marketing Guelph

Destination Marketing Guelph (DMG) launched in December 2022. Funded through the Municipal Accommodation Tax and working in tandem with the City of Guelph DMG was created to promote and illuminate Guelph as a vibrant, unique, and authentic visitor destination. Our objective is to align community and stakeholder interests and efforts to position and promote Guelph as a must-see visitor destination, by highlighting the aspects that make it a unique and desirable place to live, travel and stay.

Through a strategic and integrated marketing approach we will produce promotional products, assets and funding and sponsorship streams that generate awareness, attract visitors, and create value for all our businesses, organizations, and events.  This work will be supported through targeted market research, stakeholder and community engagement and strategic planning that will ultimately inform and support the tourism sector through the creation of product and destination development and marketing. As a not-for-profit organization our goal is to drive awareness of Guelph and entice visitors to come and enjoy the many wonderful things our city has to offer.
