Annual Meeting

Home»Annual Meeting

Each year, the SDTMD hosts an Annual Meeting, and all lodging owners and general managers are invited to attend. This meeting, hosted by a member hotel and usually held in November, provides an overview of the activities of the SDTMD, as well as a preview and forecast of the year ahead.

Keynote speakers are selected based on their industry knowledge and insights. Some past speakers have included Bobby Bowers of Smith Travel Research leading a seminar on RevPAR (revenue per available room), and John Lambeth, President and Founder of Civitas, providing insights on the formation and maintenance of tourism improvement districts.
