2nd Annual Spotlight on the Mid Atlantic

October 10-12, 2018 

Dover DE

FAM dates available soon

Save the dates – October 10-12, 2018 in Dover DE!   Spotlight on the Mid-Atlantic  is a tourism conference which combines educational seminars, networking functions and a trade show. Operators are primarily domestic (including Canada) and range from small operations to large receptive companies (and everything in between). The ratio of suppliers to operators is never more than 2.5 to 1.

Spotlight is casual and intimate. We don't just network - we build relationships at Spotlight. There are three days of interaction in which to conduct business.  The goal is to build lasting relationships. New tour itineraries to off-the-beaten-path destinations are highlighted, using the closest Southwestern gateway cities and all they have to offer as arrival and departure points.  

The first 30 operators to sign up will be included in the Spotlight Fam.  All operators must complete a Spotlight Qualification Form to be eligible.  Details and dates will be available soon.
