Funding Futures: The Impact and Future of Tourism & DMO Funding in Response & Recovery from COVID-19
This webinar summarizes the findings and recommendations from "Funding Futures," a major study of the recovery and future of tourism and DMO funding coming out of the COVID-19 crisis. The project analyzed 115 North American cities, all 50 U.S. states and 10 Canadian provinces to summarize the current situation, the impact of the COVID-19 crisis, and the outlook for recovery. The study also introduces and explores nine alternative funding options for DMOs to be “built back better” – options for more balanced, resilient and sustainable funding.
John Lambeth of Civitas, Chris Adams of Miles Partnership, Adam Sacks of Tourism Economics and Erin Francis-Cummings of Destination Analysts, along with Al Hutchinson of Visit Baltimore and Cathy Ritter of the Colorado Tourism Office, discuss this essential update on your DMO’s funding future.
