The Destination on the Left Virtual Summit will run from Wednesday, April 1 through Friday, April 3.
From the comfort of your own office, home or wherever you like to consume educational content. The best news about the where is that there is no travel, no hotel nights required and no evenings away from your family.
Presentations will go live at their time slot according to the summit schedule. They are 20 minute pre-recorded videos that offer a variety of slides, voice and maybe even a little video. Each presenter will be available for a 10 minute live Q&A immediately following the scheduled time slot. There will be a downloadable worksheet with each presentation. The presentations will be live for 24 hours to encourage you to stop waiting for the right time and take action along with hundreds of other tourism marketing professionals.
As a summit participant you will have access to a private Facebook group where we’ll be connecting with one another before, during and after the summit. Presenters will be jumping in and out of the Facebook group as well. This will be a great forum for connecting with each other, asking questions and sharing ideas.
Throughout each day we will have Q&A threads in the Facebook group for each presentation where you can ask each other and the presenter questions. In addition there will be a live Q&A for ten minutes following each presentation time slot.
Meet Your Host - Nicole Mahoney
Destination On The Left Podcast Host and CEO, Break the Ice Media
Hi! I’m Nicole Mahoney, founder of Break the Ice Media a marketing agency focused on tourism marketing and host of the popular podcast, Destination on the Left.
Break the Ice Media was launched in 2009, with a focus on helping organizations and businesses in the tourism industry attract more visitors. At its core, BTI is a marketing communications firm with a strategic approach to content marketing that includes public relations, social media marketing, digital advertising, video marketing, search engine optimization and more. By telling the stories of our client’s brands, we help them engage with their target audiences and drive visitation to their destinations. This hyper focus has resulted in 13 awards and industry recognition just since 2017.
In October 2017, I launched Destination on the Left, a podcast focused on the travel and tourism industry, exploring successful collaborations, creative marketing ideas and best practices. Each week I interview destination marketers, industry leaders, consultants and businesses in the tourism industry and every week I learn something new.
I believe that the travel and tourism industry is a core economic driver for every community. My vision is to enable travel and tourism professionals to be better at accomplishing their goals in order to have a greater impact within the communities they serve. I would like my legacy to be one that has served this industry in such a way that we have created a positive impact on the economy and there are stronger communities because of it.
The Destination on the Left virtual summit is another way for us to help you become better tourism professionals and I am excited for the content of the upcoming online event.
I am grateful for all of the presenters who have agreed to take this journey with me and offer this amazing content to all of you.
I hope you will join us!
