Experts in Marketing Places
Development Counsellors International (DCI) is the leader in travel, economic development and talent attraction marketing, increasing visitor, business and talent inquiries for destinations around the globe.
Ted Levine founded DCI in 1960 with a vision. He recognized early on the ability for place marketing — through the dual engines of tourism and economic development — to bring jobs, open doors, and elevate the lives of the people living and working in those places.
DCI’s leadership team and staff continue to pursue that purpose today from locations across North America, including New York, Denver, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, Montreal and Toronto. The agency has worked with more than 500 cities, regions, states, provinces, and countries to attract investors, visitors, and talent.
