Another Successful Tourism Summit, this time celebrating "Houston: The Next Frontier!"

We hope you were able to join us on April 25th for the fifth annual Houston Tourism Summit celebrating "Houston: The Next Frontier!" Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner delivered our tourism totals for 2018, and reinforced our goal for 2020 - 25 million visitors! Our entertaining and inspiring keynote speakers this year were Chief Troublemaker, Dustin Garis, and Scott Kirby, President of United Airlines. 

Those in attendance found the day informative and worthwhile. As evidenced by the more than 600 people who attended, we succeeded in achieving our primary goal of bringing together tourism professionals, community organizations, elected officials, and Houston First Corporation staff to discuss why travel matters and encourage engagement in tourism-related initiatives in the Greater Houston area.
