VIDEO: DMC Webinar Series – Road to Recovery: Travel, Lodging and Conventions

Thank you to all those who attended DMC’s webinar series, Road to Recovery: Travel, Lodging and Conventions.

Our panelists discussed what the hospitality industry can do to successfully re-open their operations and what meeting planners can do to successfully host larger events as shelter-in-place orders are relaxed. They shared examples of how to create a safe and healthy environment and a compelling customer experience that will spur travel and encourage meeting planners and the public to return to hotels and convention and event centers.

Featured Presenters:

John Edman, director, Explore Minnesota Tourism

Joe Ward, president, Experience Rochester

Angie Richards, Area Director of Sales at Avra Hospitality

Debbie Van Ravenhorst, regional vice president, HelmsBriscoe
