2021 Leadership Summit for CEOs

Virtual Event for June

Over the past year, CEOs and their teams have stepped up to new challenges, embraced inventive ideas and developed fresh skills, making the most of these trying times. Successful DMOs depend on strong leaders prepared to tackle daunting strategic challenges today and in the future.

DMA West’s Leadership Summit will be a virtual event that includes multiple educational sessions, along with opportunities to share ideas with and learn from fellow DMO CEOs in breakout sessions. The Leadership Summit is one of DMA West’s most popular events and will provide participating CEOs with different perspectives as we all finally emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Virtual sessions for the Leadership Summit will be held on selected June dates to be announced. Registration for the Summit will open in late May.

With rapid changes over the past year, new ways of operating are being evaluated and implemented as the destination marketing industry looks ahead. With this in mind, the Planning Committee members look forward to seeing their CEO peers virtually at the 2021 Leadership Summit.

Thanks to the Leadership Summit Planning Committee members for their work in developing the program content—Domenic Bravo (Cheyenne), Brent DeRaad (Tucson), Kaitlin Eskelson (Salt Lake), Brook Kaufman, CDME, CTA (Casper), Tom Kiely (West Hollywood), Katie Neddenriep (Elko), Julie Saupe (Anchorage), Candace Carr Strauss (Sedona), and Sara Toliver, CDME (Ogden).

Note: The Association is scheduled to hold its 2022 Leadership Summit for CEOs in Vail, Colorado. Our hosts at Vail Valley Partnership look forward to welcoming western DMO CEOs to their destination next summer.
