Tech Summit refreshment breaks and selected group meal functions are strategically located so delegates may spend time with vendors/exhibitors, learning about technology products and services specifically for DMOs. We appreciate the support they provide to the Association and Tech Summit DMO delegates are invited to spend time with the vendors, ask product/service questions and consider them as potential partners for future projects.


Comments about the 2018 DMA West Tech Summit...

"My team had a really fabulous learning experience at the Tech Summit. They held a big debrief today, and we identified several key initiatives to move forward on now and into FY19 based on the Summit. Congratulations to the Planning Committee on the delivery of exceptional educational content. We made a big investment in the Tech Summit this year, and it was well worth it. Our team felt that having more people there, and hearing the content firsthand, was very valuable."

“The 2018 Tech Summit in Spokane was a fantastic experience. The speakers and the content were all top quality, informative and timely to what we are experiencing in the current technology world for promoting our destinations. I attend multiple conferences each year and this one is truly a highlight for myself and our team! We will definitely be there next year ready to continue our technology conversations.”
