General Session

Keynote: Destinations International Foundation's Think Tank Challenge

Thursday, May 19th (Day 3)
10:00 AM - 10:45 AM

Plaza Ballroom
Communities with successful destination organizations can compete on the global stage for their share of the world’s attention, customers, talent, and investment, all of which are critical to strengthening the community’s economic position and vitality, providing opportunity for residents and visitors alike. The Destinations International Foundation, in its role to innovate and incubate new ideas for our industry, will work with Tourism Academy attendees to identify one or more key destination promotion community indicators — measurements to determine the progress a destination organization is making towards filling the community need for destination promotion and achieving community well-being.
