When is the conference?

April 23-25, 2018 in Schenectady, NY

Why should you go?

Collaboration:  when tourism industry leaders from all regions of NY come together, there are collaboration opportunities that can’t be beat.

Energetic Workshops:  You will learn about the tools of the trade, best practices, and creative solutions for maximizing your tourism marketing dollars and impact.

We are all facing similar challenges. Nothing beats collective wisdom shared during the sessions but also after hours is when creative juices start flowing and people learn more about each other and how we can better work together!

This event is put together in conjunction with I Love NY.  It’s important to stay informed as to the direction they are taking so that we can all further the overarching brand messaging.
