Take your game to the next level and be “In it to Win It” with STS in Birmingham where you will enjoy unique learning and career building opportunities that you just can’t find anywhere else. Connecting with travel & tourism professionals from around the southeast is inspiring and we all know there’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people!
Join us this September as we hear from Birmingham’s own with our special guest Phyllis Hoffman DePiano, CEO, Hoffman Media, an inspiring entrepreneur and founder of a great media company that is truly engaged with our industry. Also on your radar should be Chief Instigator and truth explorer, Bill Geist, DMOproZ, and his take on the new, broader imperative for DMOs and the challenges they face; and Dr. Peter Tarlow, PH.D, Tourism & More who will address the very timely issue of tourism being one of terrorism’s principal targets. Newly appointed National Tourism Program Manager for the National Park Service Donald Leadbetter, will also present as the NPS moves into it's 2nd Centennial.
