TACVB Speaker Proposal Form

 

Welcome!  Thank you for your interest in presenting an educational session at one of TACVB’s upcoming educational events. TACVB strives to provide cutting-edge programming for DMO professionals, so emphasis should be placed on content that is relevant, timely, and develops the skills needed to excel in the tourism industry.

 

Educations sessions will include general sessions (or keynotes), breakout sessions, and case studies.  Sessions will vary in length.  General sessions can range from 1 hour to 1.5 hours long.  Breakout sessions and case studies are typically 45 minutes to 1 hour in length.  All sessions can include up to 5 minutes at the beginning for introductions and recognition of sponsors.

Our Annual Conference will be held August 14-16, 2018 in Sugar Land, Texas. There are also three other opportunities for speakers in 2018. TACVB is launching three NEW Symposiums designed to provide hyper-focused learning on Sales, Marketing, and Leadership. These Symposiums will be 1.5 days in length, and will offer hands-on learning labs, one general session, multiple breakout sessions, and case study sessions.

 

The Sales Symposium will be held on February 27-28, 2018 in Austin, Texas. The Marketing Symposium is scheduled for May 2-3, 2018 in Temple, Texas. The Leadership Symposium has not yet been scheduled, but is slated for October/November of 2018.
