Register for Olympic Peninsula 2024 Tourism Summit

The Olympic Peninsula 2024 Tourism Summit is slated for Monday and Tuesday, April 8-9 at the Field Arts & Events Hall, 201 W. Front St., Port Angeles.

Tourism industry colleagues and friends will be discussing the Olympic Peninsula Tourism Master Plan, designed to provide a roadmap to help grow a year-round visitor economy that “honors and protects the beauty and serenity of this place we call home,” organizers say.

The initial itinerary includes a networking reception from 5-7 p.m. on April 8.

The summit on April 9 includes:

• in the morning, a continental breakfast and introduction of Olympic Peninsula Tourism Master Plan in the morning with Greg Oates of MMGY NextFactor; followed by a Master Plan breakout session for short term goals;

• lunch with keynote speaker Loni Greninger of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, discussing “Tribal Tourism and Stewardship of the Land”;

• and an afternoon panel discussion and work session on “Growing Three Season Energy & Loyalty” moderated by Crystie Kistler.

A final itinerary will be sent one week prior to event.

“The Tourism Master Plan grew out of a need to engage both the tourism industry and our area residents in looking ahead to create a more stable year-round visitor economy,” said Marsha Massey, executive director for the Olympic Peninsula Visitor Bureau. “The plan will support more full-time employment for locals and help even out the peaks and valleys of seasonal visitation.”

Cost is $145 for a two-day conference pass.
