One of the challenges that professionals face in managing their annual budget, is selecting which conferences to attend. This is an investment of both time and money that should be carefully considered.

Attending the 2015 Empire State Tourism Conference from April 27-29 is like attending multiple conferences in one. You'll receive valuable educational information, networking opportunities, ideas for building a solid customer base, experience many mouth-watering culinary offerings from across New York State, and more! 

This year's conference theme is "The Targeted Traveler", building upon some of the great ideas we were able to share at the NYSTIA Annual Meeting, and taking it several steps further. General sessions and breakout presentations will guide you through some of the many types of travelers you can market to, teach you why you should target their specific interests, and how to do it.

We welcome all stakeholders in the tourism industry to attend the "I Love New York" Empire State Tourism Conference! Look to the menu on the left for registration, transportation, speaker bios, schedule, sponsors and more.
