The Summit is an “invitation to build a better tourism industry, regionally, nationally and globally, by learning together,” according to a release, with a theme of “Moving Forward Better—Recovery, Resiliency and Regeneration.”

The TOTA and CCCTA “have built a fully virtual, online program around 50 provocative, world-renowned speakers and industry experts from around the globe,” the release said.

“Registration is free for all attendees, and includes networking opportunities, live Q&A sessions, a virtual silent auction, discussions around the latest developments in tourism, climate action and community building, as well as the chance to explore industry and community resources while interacting with live representatives within virtual booths—all from your home or work office.”
