Stowe, Vermont, Jan. 24, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inntopia and Ryan Solutions announced today that they are teaming up to host the first annual Destination Summit in Denver, Colorado from May 21-23, 2013. This event aims to bring together leaders in destination marketing and reservation services from around the globe for sessions on best practices in online and offline sales, marketing, social media, packaging, and reservation fulfillment.
"We have hosted an annual conference for Inntopia partners for several years, and Destination Summit is the next iteration of that event," says Inntopia CEO Trevor Crist. "As that conference has grown, we have had significant interest from outside organizations who want to attend to hear the perspective of the world class speakers and panelists who attend each year. Past attendees have also asked for more sessions on marketing, social media, and effective sale strategies for destination marketers and sales agents. To that end, we are pleased that Ryan Solutions, a market leader in Database Marketing and Customer Relationship Management, has chosen to join us in hosting this expanded event."
Destination Summit will include tracks specifically tailored for Inntopia partners and Ryan Solutions partners, as well as tracks focused on best practices in web marketing, social media, mobile sales, direct marketing, sales agent training, and intelligent data analytics. Attendees are expected from premier vacation destinations in the US, Canada, the Caribbean, and Europe.
"We're thrilled to join our partner, Inntopia, in producing Destination Summit," says Corey Ryan of Ryan Solutions. "We're currently lining up some tremendous speakers and hope this show will be more of a learning event than exists in this space today. Inntopia's annual conference is a great event. This year, by adding Ryan Solutions and our Slopefillers division to the show, we expect to make it the premier educational event for destination marketers. We're thrilled to welcome our clients, partners, and others to Denver for Destination Summit."
