Connecticut Tourism Topics & Speakers

Goals

To plan the keynote speaker and breakout session topics for an upcoming conference in Connecticut aimed at providing education and inspiration to businesses supporting tourism in the state. The current objective is to obtain a list of topics and speakers from the 2019 and 2020 state tourism conferences from Maine, New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland.

Limited Details

  • While limited or no details appeared available online about the state conferences of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and to some extent Maryland, more research may have to be applied to locate these states’ past/current topics and speakers.
    • The New Hampshire Travel Council has posted details about the Governor’s Conference on Tourism for 2019 but they do not include past speakers and topics.
    • The Pennsylvania Tourism Summit of 2020 schedule with limited information about topics and speakers is available here.
    • While topics for the 2019 New Jersey conference are available, more time will need to be taken to suss out its speakers.
