Join us for the 2019 Advocacy Summit, as we bring together advocacy experts and destination organization professionals to exchange ideas on the latest trends and threats to our industry. Discover from insiders the tools and research available to you in our “Marketplace of Ideas” and enhance your leadership skills with advocacy training.

Learn about strategic planning, talent development, diversity, inclusion and equity and working with legislators. Whether fighting for your funding, defending your destination against the weaponization of travel, or lighting the way through dark money politics, this summit will help you become a more effective advocate for your destination organization and a community shared value.”
