November 12-14, 2017
Presented by Virginia Restaurant, Lodging & Travel Association; Virginia Tourism Corporation; and Virginia Destination Marketing Organizations, The 2017 VA-1 Tourism Summit aims to connect Virginia’s Experiences, encouraging attendees to think beyond their own product and develop big picture ideas.
We are thrilled to announce that Governor Terry McAuliffe will join the VA-1 Tourism Summit as our distinguished guest of honor on the morning of Tuesday, November 14th. Governor McAuliffe will speak on the important role the tourism industry plays in growing a New Virginia Economy at the breakfast general session, sponsored by the 2019 Commemoration’s ‘American Evolution.’ Under the Governor’s leadership, Virginia’s tourism industry reported record-breaking spending each year of his administration, with an increase of $2.2 billion since 2014. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to hear Governor McAuliffe speak to the power of tourism.
