Conference Sessions

Travel: By the Numbers
We’ll set the stage for our discussion with a talk from Destination Analysts. Destination Analysts is a travel and tourism market research firm widely known for pioneering and customized travel and tourism research that is second to none. We will gain insight on traveler sentiment through the pandemic and today.

City by City: Leading through Crisis
Take a deep dive into the tourism industry with professionals from across the states of Texas and Florida. How has the industry managed through multiple crises impacting travel and economic development? How have industry leaders innovated to remain top of mind for travelers wanting to resume their routines after years at home?

Beyond the Destination: Psychological benefits of travel
The benefits of travel are far greater than a change of scenery. The Jack & Jill Late Stage Cancer Foundation (JAJF) is a national 501(c)(3) public charity, operating with the support of our generous donors, corporate partners and oncologists. Since 2006, JAJF has been treating children facing the imminent loss of their Mom or Dad to cancer to WOW! Experiences—a timeout to create positive, cherished memories at beautiful destinations.

State of Travel & Tourism: Future Readiness
This conversation with top travel executives will focus on navigating modern challenges to an evolving and changing industry. We will analyze global supply chain pressures and the newest innovations and advances within the travel industry.

Beyond Creativity: The Disney Way
Founded by Walt Disney in 1952, Walt Disney Imagineering is the creative force behind the memorable Disney experiences that connect and inspire across generations and borders. Hear first-hand from an Imagineer on how they take concepts from an idea to reality.
