Designed for CEOs, C-suite and executive-level staff of destination organizations, the CEO Summit focuses on informing destination leaders on how to not only survive industry threats but create an environment for tourism to thrive.

Economic pressures, accelerated industry adaptations, increasing volumes of data, and ever-changing customer preferences become opportunities - not obstacles.

By applying creative techniques to real business challenges, leaders can broaden their mindsets and learn to break out of the box to create new opportunities.
