New Hampshire Tourism Summit

The New Hampshire Tourism Summit, formerly the Governor’s Conference on Tourism, will embody the spirit of “New” this year. With a new name, new location, and new faces, this annual event for tourism professionals is a can’t-miss opportunity for attendees to foster a cohesive marketing environment in which the industry can work, grow, and thrive together.

This year, the Summit will be hosted in Plymouth—a town that represents the classic NH combination of rich and vibrant history while maintaining status as an active outdoor hub where opportunities and local charm abound! The conference will be held at the Flying Monkey, which is a historic performing arts theatre central to the Plymouth arts scene. Lunch will be served at the Barn on the Pemi—a centuries old barn that was deconstructed and moved from its original site to find home on a quaint hillside overlooking the Pemigewasset River in Plymouth.
