An Interactive, Virtual Event for the Tourism, Hospitality, Meetings & Events Industries

hospitality tourism summit logoGiven the damage that COVID-19 has done to our industry, it’s time to come together to begin the process of rebuilding in a safe and responsible manner. To help jumpstart our rebuild and showcase our home city of Chicago as a world-class destination for meetings and travel, we have partnered with the Hospitality & Tourism Summit Online taking place September 14-18.

In its 19th year, the Summit brings together the many facets of the industry including meeting and event planners, hoteliers, venues, restaurants, nightlife, social media influencers, attractions, retailers, and more.

I am excited to lead an engaging discussion featuring industry insiders representing the family travel, student tour, leisure group, sports events, and international inbound markets.

The reimagined Summit features 15+ opportunities for you to connect, learn, market, and enhance your skills through an easy-to-use online platform. There will be a virtual trade show, 10+ educational sessions and 3 virtual networking events. A sampling of the educational sessions include:

  • “The Role Niche Travel Markets Can Play In Your Businesses Rebound”– Hear the latest trends in 5 niche travel groups representing the family travel, student tour, leisure group, sports events, and international inbound markets
  • “Tourism & Hospitality Forward”-Join David Whitaker and Glenn Eden of Choose Chicago as we pave the road to Chicago’s rebound as a world class destination for travel, tours, conventions, and events
  • “Coronavirus Travel Sentiment Index–The latest findings on how Americans are approaching travel decision making” with Destination Analysts
  • “How Hotels are Making it Safe for Tourism, Meetings, and Events” – a panel discussion lead by Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association’s Michael Jacobson
