Different times call for different methods. And this is a time unlike any other we have witnessed. Our team at Destination Think is pleased to announce our first-ever Virtual Forum, which brings you strategic insights to help your tourism destination through the COVID-19 crisis. The online event will take place from April 7-9, 2020.
Since our webinar about the pandemic’s impact on DMOs and scenario response planning, we’ve been hard at work on ways to maintain mutual support for destination marketers and the tourism industry at large. At our Virtual Forum, our team and guests will present three sessions that dive deeper into the topics that we started exploring in the webinar.
