PRSA 2019 Travel and Tourism Conference

Let PR Ring: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Travel

June 16–19 | Philadelphia

The best gathering of travel media anywhere this year…

…and six reasons you can’t afford to miss it:

Meet A-List Media 

You’ll hear top editors from the New York Times Travel, National Geographic, AAA, Forbes and many more outlets explain what catches their eye — and what doesn’t. At the same time, you’ll expand your network of valuable media contacts.

Hands-On Emerging Skills Sessions

A robust professional development schedule will dive into trending content ideas, tool hacks, Google Analytics tips and more. A conference favorite, “Steal This Idea” is back by popular demand. You’ll enjoy this quick-fire series of five-minute pitches on innovative case studies.

Network With Fellow Peers

Tourism professionals from a wide array of city and state DMOs, agencies, attractions and/or tourism services attend this conference. Sessions are designed to encourage sharing of best
practices among colleagues.

Test Your Skills With Unique Development Opportunities

Get the most out of the conference by arriving early for pre-conference sessions offered in a more intimate setting. Or sign up to compete in another popular conference program, Travel Trends Showdown, where your skills are tested in a fast-paced and fun game show-type competition.

Polish Up the Basics

Core sessions will review key skills like developing a comprehensive crisis communications plan, new ways to measure success and how to work with influencers.

Widen Your Horizons

You’ll take a deep dive into niche outlets with thought-provoking takeaways from editors at trendsetting publications like Atlas Obscura, Whalebone and others.
