Event Description:

Grow Your Business and Destination with Marketing and Research Intelligence

New Mexico Hospitality and Tourism TRENDS & Annual Meeting is the annual marketing and research conference held annual in Santa Fe. In addition to an annual review of the association, TRENDS also serves as the annual introduction to the 2018 Legislative Session with an update on our policy priorities and legislative agenda. TRENDS will also feature a preview of the latest travel trends and predictions from Smith Travel Research (STR) and several educational breakout sessions throughout the day that will help put your hospitality or tourism business/organization on the right track to succeed in 2018.

This will be our second year partnering with both the Association of Commerce and Industry (ACI) and Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce to give you access to their events and the opportunity to network, connect, and engage with other business professionals and legislators. TRENDS will coincide with our Annual Meeting, and we will be offering complementary workshops throughout the day.
