11th Edition at Wyndham Anaheim

Thanks to a terrific group of speakers, delegates, vendors and sponsors for coming together to mark the 11th edition of this popular education program. We were delighted to have speakers from Facebook and Google at the event. The Tech Summit included concentrated labs, dynamic general sessions, relevant workshops, and plenty of discussions with fellow attendees and vendors. The 2017 DMA West Tech Summit & Vendor Showcase is set for March 15-17, in Salt Lake City.


The following statements sum up the March 2016 Tech Summit better than any lengthy recap of the conference.

 “I want to thank you for the experience I had at the Tech Summit. It was by far and away the most informative and interesting conference I’ve attended since entering destination marketing. The information gleaned from the speakers and presentations will be invaluable to our small operation. 

Thank you so much.”

~ Drew Foster, Marketing Communications Coordinator, Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau | First-time Delegate and Foundation Scholarship Recipient

~ Tawnya Sanderson, Digital Content Marketing Specialist, Tourism Vancouver (BC) | Presenter and Delegate

“Terrific conference! The relevant content this year was overflowing! I really appreciated the opportunity to talk to the vendors and hear about the latest digital marketing innovations as well. Great resources all around. Looking forward to next year.”
