eTourism Summit Testimonials

eTourism Summit presents a valuable opportunity for gathering insights and networking, all in one location. It serves as an inspirational hub, offering a myriad of ideas from other destinations that can be adapted and applied to our own. This exchange of strategies provides a significant boost in understanding what’s effective elsewhere and how it can be translated to benefit our destination

Web Content Manager, Discover Puerto Rico

Each year I leave eTourism, I’m filled with motivation and new ideas for the industry. All of the attendees are excited to meet each other and share insights. Every session is engaging with appropriate networking breaks. And on top of it all, IT’S FUN! We all deserve to have fun every now and then. I will never miss eTourism Summit.

Matt Rocha

Account Executive, Travel & Tourism, Aki Technologies

eTourism Summit introduces our staff to cutting edge tech solutions and allows us to develop valuable relationships with the people behind those solutions. Arrivalist, CRANT, and CrowdRiff are three vendors we discovered at eTourism Summit that have since become important partners in our research and marketing programs.

Connect eTourism Testimonials

Incredibly valuable 2 days of networking with key decision makers. The days are long but the format is different from other industry events and we met people we don’t always see at other key events. Definitely worth doing again!

Kari Hoffman

Senior Director Insights & Strategy, Datafy

For someone relatively new to the industry, this was a great opportunity to gather perspective from outside my community and compare experiences.

Jimmy Hart

VP of Marketing & Communications, Visit Tuscaloosa

Connect eTourism packs a punch, with the right balance of education, business connections and networking.

Paula Port

VP of Marketing, Destination Toronto

Connect eTourism provides a wide breadth of excellent suppliers in the tourism space in quick and realistically bite-sized portions. The sessions are relevant and logically tied to the solutions onsite. Expect high-volume exposure – but with a surprisingly potent ratio of takeaways and relationships seeds sewn.

Tim Chambers

VP of Destination Strategy & Marketing, Visit Tulsa

Connect eTourism events are now staple events in our annual business plan. One-on-one opportunities are prearranged for partners to meet with destination marketing decision-makers, some of whom we knew already, but most we had never met before. Everyone at the conference arrived prepared, excited to meet, and eager to further relationships and learn from one another. ETourism Connect is a must for any marketing partner working in destination marketing and we can honestly not recommend it enough

Barbara Karasek

CEO, Paradise Advertising & Marketing Inc.

This was incredibly valuable! As we research what tools and partners will support us in 24/25, I’m confident these appointments will have a massive impact.
