2016 Leadership Summit | July 14-16 | Marana, Arizona

We’re hitting the ‘refresh’ button on the DMA West 2016 Leadership Summit!


In late January/early February, DMA West-member CEOs were invited to help craft the education program for the 2016 Leadership Summit. The Planning Committee is now developing sessions that provide insights about the challenges facing CEOs and highlight the value of best practices and innovative management and marketing strategies.

The 27th annual Leadership Summit (formerly CEO Forum) is set for July 14-16 at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, in Marara, Arizona. The resort is located a 15-minute drive from Tucson. Visitors traveling from Phoenix can reach Marana by driving 90 minutes south on Interstate 10 along a scenic corridor, with vistas of Picacho Peak and the Sacaton Mountains.

Marana is home to one of two five-star hotels in Arizona. The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, was named the No. 1 hotel in Arizona by Travel + Leisure Magazine. For destination information, visit http://www.discovermarana.org/
