Hosted by Houston First, the 2018 Houston Tourism Summit drew a record 704 attendees, and that’s great news for our entire city! Now in its fifth year, the annual summit brings together key leaders in the travel and tourism industry to foster connections and partnerships that help bring more leisure visitors to Houston. Conference attendees are able to obtain current industry information, access leading travel and tourism professionals, network, and enjoy great food and prizes.

Brand Experience Innovator, Dustin Garis, will be on hand to address the crowd that morning, along with Scott Kirby, President of United Airlines, our presenting sponsor, as our luncheon keynote.

The tourism future looks bright for Houston.  There were 21.8 million visits to the city in 2017, and our goal is to hit 25 million by 2020.  With successful summits like these, that goal looks to be in reach!

See you on April 25th at the GRB!
