This Peer Open Forum will delve into the hot button issues affecting travel to and within the United States and discover the approaches destinations are employing to address them. Gain insights on how destinations are proactively tackling issues such as public safety concerns, travel bans and inclusivity, as well as how they are combatting negative perceptions, navigating politically charged decisions and involving local leaders. Learn from your peers on how we can foster a more welcoming and secure travel environment across the nation.

PLEASE NOTE: We ask that all ESTO sponsors refrain from attending the peer open forums to foster an environment of collaboration for staff from DMOs and state tourism offices. Thanks for your understanding!
