Annually, presentations are selected for the conference based on feedback from past attendees and input from the group of Vermont travel industry professionals that encompasses the Vermont Tourism Summit Planning Committee and Board of Directors. Presentation proposals should address current trends and issues relevant to Vermont travel industry businesses and professionals, and should not be a sales pitch for a product or service.
Presentations are one hour (60 minutes) or 1 1/2 hour (90 minutes) in length and are offered concurrently on both days of the conference. Presenters are encouraged to include time for discussion as part of their presentation.
The Vermont Tourism Summit, Inc. is a non-profit organization with limited funds for educational programming. It is not currently our policy to cover speaker fees and expenses for concurrent session presenters. We offer that if you would not have otherwise paid to attend the conference, we will waive your registration expense for the day that you present. We appreciate your understanding and willingness to present, free of charge.
The call for presentations for the 2018 Vermont Tourism Summit is now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal. Notifications of acceptance will go out in December and the schedule will be posted online at that time.
