I felt privileged to be in the first DMO Empowered class, to be able to learn from giants in the industry and to be alongside such a seasoned group of Texas tourism professionals.”
TTIA has partnered with the Texas Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus (TACVB) and the Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) to ensure the most powerful program.
The DMO Empowered program was

essential tools necessary to educate local officials, stakeholders, and
citizens regarding the economic value of travel and tourism in their own
communities and the valuable role of the DMO.
