The Arts & Tourism Summit


The Arts & Tourism Summit - Access For All

The Summit features nationally recognized keynote speakers, panel discussions with local experts, and breakout sessions providing targeted workshops and facilitated dialog. The event will also feature inspiring cultural performances, designated networking opportunities, an artist market, a DEIA vendor spotlight, and an opening night reception. The content is designed for Palm Beach County arts and tourism leaders, and employees at every level working at cultural institutions, tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants, and across the arts and hospitality sectors. The Summit’s fundamental goal is for DEIA not to just be a two-day focus, but that the audience leaves with new perspectives, contacts, and opportunities for action.
