Funding Futures - ESTO WEBINAR Series RESOURCES


The webinar on August 20, 2020 summarized the findings and recommendations from “Funding Futures,” a major study of the recovery and future of tourism and DMO funding coming out of the COVID-19 crisis. John Lambeth of Civitas, Chris Adams of Miles Partnership, Adam Sacks of Tourism Economics and Erin Francis-Cummings of Destination Analysts, along with Al Hutchinson of Visit Baltimore and Cathy Ritter of the Colorado Tourism Office, presented this essential update for your DMO’s funding future. Check out the recording below or view the slide deck here.

The Funding Futures report was undertaken by Miles Partnership, Civitas and Tourism Economics with most of the time and effort contributed pro-bono to allow all DMOs to access the report free of charge. Some valuable funding was provided by the U.S. Travel Association Destination Council and the Destination Marketing Association of Canada. Important support was also provided by Destination Analysts with additional in-kind assistance from Destinations International.
