You have a compelling story to tell, one that will connect with the right kind of customer and bring them flocking to your tours. But in the ever-changing world of marketing, it’s so hard for tourism companies to find the time and money to travel to big, faraway conferences offering generic marketing sessions. By creating this virtual marketing summit just for tourism companies, I hope to help all my peers in the industry I love create connections, generate new ideas, and find exciting new ways to successfully market your business, frustration-free.
