Flashpoint Politics: Charlottesville


One of the many things we watch for in destinations are what we call flashpoint politics or events. Largely an event that takes place within a destination, largely outside of the control of the destination organization but yet, leaves the destination organization remaining to pick up the pieces. One of the largest events we have seen in our sector's history is what occurred the summer of 2017 in Charlottesville, VA. Now, today is not for retelling of those events but to really talk about the story since then and the incredible work that has been done by Courtney Cacatian and her team at Visit Charlottesville.
