Danielle Powell

My life’s passion is wandering in foreign exotic lands.  Any road untraveled is a delightful adventure!  Prior to working full time in the travel industry I crisscrossed the globe stepping foot on every continent (except Antarctica but on the bucket list) and to date more than 70 countries.  During these glorious days of freedom and adventure, I returned to Canada with a strong desire to see everything that Canada has to offer.  Growing up in Ontario with family on the eastern seaboard I knew that region of the country so I set my sights west to the magnificent Rockies that had captivated me in school textbooks.  Magical Lake Louise was my landing place in 1993, a base to fund and explore the rest of Canada.  Within three days, this special place had captured my soul.

My tourism education from Centennial College in Toronto and tour operator experience for Britrail Travel International proved to be a valuable asset working in the Canadian Rockies.  In those early years I found employment with tourism operators that are now currently vendors for BANFF DMC.  With the development of the internet in the 1990's it was a good time to move from leisure to corporate travel.  My love of Banff was the driving force behind the creation of BANFF DMC Inc.  I created the business in 2000 and serviced primarily small corporate groups and slowly built the business to be what it is today... Banff's oldest and only boutique destination management company.  To date we have transported thousands of passengers to and from Calgary International Airport, providing destination and event management services for small ultra exclusive VVIP retreats to multi wave incentives and meetings or conferences over 5000 guests in size for every industry imaginable. 

My life passion has always been creating memorable and exceptional travel experiences.  BANFF DMC Inc allows me to do what I love, creating and delivering exceptional travel itineraries with awe-inspiring moments for guests in my favourite destination in Canada!
