Thank you to everyone who submitted a presentation proposal for the 37th Annual Vermont Tourism Summit. The deadline to submit proposals has passed (September 9, 2019). Submitters will be notified of acceptance in November and the schedule will be posted online in December.
If you have questions or need to withdraw your proposal to present, please contact Delaney Meeting & Event Management at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 802-865-5202.
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.
PRESENTER REGISTRATION & HONORARIUM POLICY: 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. All presenters are required to register to attend the conference. 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. If you would have otherwise paid to attend, we invite you to still do so, but allow you to make that decision. We appreciate your understanding and willingness to present, free of charge.
