Yesterday, we announced our joint venture with PCMA for Destination Showcase.

Destination Showcase is North America’s only one-day event that connects meeting planners with convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs) so they can better understand how CVBs are the key to making meetings and events successful.

This dynamic show offers participants the opportunity to connect with the nation’s top planners in one location and gain insights from educational content created by PCMA.

The 2020 Destination Showcase will be held Feb. 5. Complete this form to receive more information about the event. If you book by August 15, you will receive a special rate!
