E-Tourism Summit to be held in San Francisco AND Napa Valley…sort of.

The poll was so close (SF by one vote) that we decided to hold the event in both places by offering an optional post-conference trip to the Napa Valley. Our goal is to be the gold standard interactive marketing conference for the industry that combines high quality content with a fun and unique experience. This year’s event will include a “Pre and Post” concept:   A Pre-conference site visit, lunch and workshop at Google headquarters (available to first 50 registrants) and a Post-conference Weekend at Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa Valley. http://silveradoresort.com/   Special rates  will be available for our attendees. I believe it’s unique among industry events.

 What’s new for 2011?
