2016 Marketing Summit & Vendor Showcase | September 21-23 | Mesa, Arizona

It’s all about best practices and trends in destination marketing at the DMA West Marketing Summit, September 21-23, in Mesa, Arizona. Our hosts at Visit Mesa are making special plans to welcome their industry colleagues from the West.

The Marketing Summit Planning Committee is working to ‘reboot’ the program with new formats to deliver the education offerings, while continuing to build in networking at every opportunity. Look for tracks for similar roles/positions for deeper discussions and workshop focus.

The Best Idea Program continues as a popular component of the Marketing Summit, with perhaps a few changes and more presentations.

At the Vendor Showcase, delegates meet with suppliers to discuss advertising and publishing opportunities, research and marketing strategies, as well as multimedia and technology solutions.
