    As the world recovers from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting slowdown of global travel and business events, destination leaders have had a rare opportunity to reflect on the impact of our industry on our communities—and a chance to rebuild in a way that is mindful, strategic, collaborative, and intentional. Join Jane Cunningham, Andreas Weissenborn and the team at Oxford Economics to hear about the Event Impact Calculator (EIC). Celebrating ten years, the Event Impact Calculator measures the economic value of an event and calculates its return on investment to local taxes. Armed with this information, destination organisations are better prepared to tell the story of their destination through data and make the case to policymakers and stakeholders for the ongoing development and growth of the events and meetings sectors.

    Story telling is powerful, but we need both accounting books and the books that inspire!

    Join Visit Corpus Christi and Bandwango as they discuss the Attractions Pass the destination organization launched at the height of the pandemic. Presented by Bandwango.

    Join Visit Corpus Christi and Bandwango as they discuss the Attractions Pass the destination organization launched at the height of the pandemic. This passport was built to bring locals back into attractions as re-openings began. The payment structure chosen put money back into the pockets of attractions partners and helped Visit Corpus Christi communicate the destination was open for business. As vaccines rolled out, the passport transitioned into a visitor-focused initiative and has become a cornerstone in the destination organization's plan for continued destination development.
