PRSA 2018 Travel and Tourism Conference

June 3–6 | New Orleans

Travel Trends Throwdown

For the first time ever, PRSA brings a Family Feud-inspired throw down to the conference, we’re calling it the “Travel Trends Throwdown” and it will take place on Tuesday, June 4th at 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. in the main ballroom.

The event will run four teams of PR pros through a gauntlet of tourism PR trivia. The answers have been surveyed from the industry’s top travel journalists, and our fearless host, San Francisco Chronicle’s travel editor Spud Hilton. In the end we’ll see one final team takes home the coveted “Travel Throwdown” trophy (and a $100 Amazon gift card for each member).

Survey Says this will be one fast-paced, hilarious and insightful competition attendees won’t want to miss.

If you’d like to play/join a team, and compete for the grand prize, please fill out this online form.

A member of the PRSA Executive Committee will contact you in advance to confirm your spot on the team and final logistics.
