Bright, Shiny, New Objects
Nearly a decade ago, “Bright, Shiny, New Objects” took to the stage at eTourism Summit to make presentations as startup companies with creative concepts that held marketing promise for destinations and attractions. A handful of newly curated presenters continued to bring their ideas forward in this shark tank-style session in each of the following years.
Why? Because since 2000, eTourism Summit has been about innovation at the intersection of digital and tourism for DMOs, attractions, and their vendors. It’s a community for present, sharing and receiving updates on the latest trends in marketing, platforms, content, tools, search, social media, mobile and web design.
What happened? Some took another direction, some didn’t resonate, and a few went “Boom!” in that room and never looked back.
