With less than a week to DMAI's 2016 Visitor Services Summit, please review the following important items as you prepare to join over 100 visitor services colleagues in Colorado Springs.


Before Leaving Home


What to Pack


Attire for the event and all social gatherings is business casual. The weather in Colorado Springs will be in the mid-to high-70s during the day and mid-40s at night. Attendees are invited to show your destination spirit by wearing a shirt or attire from your destination at the Sunday night welcome reception.


Don’t forget to bring a gift for the gift exchange! Gifts should be something that represents your destination, can be easily packed and costs $15 or less.


We also request that you bring plenty of business cards to share with your colleagues. We recommend bringing at least 125 cards. 


Get Social


Join the Facebook Event to network with your colleagues before, during and after the event! We also encourage attendees to use the hashtag #VSS16 on all your social channels.
