Destinations International Announces Destination Showcase Date

Signature event to be held in Washington, D.C on February 13, 2018

Washington, D.C. (October 20, 2017) – Destinations International Chair Tammy Blount, FCDME and President and CEO of the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau and President and CEO Don Welsh today announced that Destination Showcase will take place on February 13, 2018 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center Grand Ballroom in Washington D.C.

Now in its 30th year, Destination Showcase is North America’s only one-day event that exclusively brings together over 650 planners and 140 destinations to better understand how CVBs are the key to making meetings and events a total success.

“The big advantage of Destination Showcase is that it is for destinations only and provides a simplified process for our members’ customers since they are dealing with only one entity for the destination rather than breaking it up into multiple meetings,” said Blount. “And, it is a special destination organization-only opportunity where we provide a service that our community cannot provide for themselves.”

“The event begins and ends with the destination,” said Welsh. “Destination organizations and CVBs provide meeting planners with expertise, leveraged partnerships and seamless event planning resources. Destination Showcase continues to educate meeting planners on those benefits and enables them to maximize opportunities for meaningful connections.”
