Destination Leaders (Tourist Boards/Offices, CVBs) to Collaborate at Travel Exchange
"DMO budgets have been reduced-and sometimes eliminated-as governments cut back during the economic downturn," said Lisa Simon, NTA president. "So our questions are: What strategies have organizations used and how can we work together to ensure a robust packaged-travel industry? That's what will result from this thought-leader discussion."
The Destination Leaders Forums comprise two sessions on Wednesday, Jan. 23: a 9 a.m. meeting for state and provincial leaders from North America, and a 2:30 p.m. session that brings together leaders of national tourism organizations. Helen Marano, vice president of government and industry affairs for the World
Travel and Tourism Council, will serve as moderator of both sessions.
"After our face-to-face forums, NTA will release our findings in a white paper," said Simon. "We'll also use this information to educate our members and enhance packaged travel."
