If your stuff is as good as it gets, get rewarded!
eTourism Summit is looking for tourism excellence in digital marketing in this brand new series of unconventional – but highly relevant – awards in 13 original categories.
We’ve got award categories for content, influencer marketing, Facebook Live, email campaigns, best website, short-form video, long-form video and lots more. Anything genius (or near genius) with a program start date between Jan. 1, 2017 and Aug. 31, 2018 (that’s the application deadline) is eligible.
We can’t wait to see what you’ve got.
