2022 "Let's Talk" Conversations

Based on the success of last year's Travel Talk networking sessions, we're bringing back these open conversations...with a twist! You told us what was most on your mind during the state tourism conference survey, so we're focusing at least 40 minutes of each Let's Talk session on one of these topics. We've invited people in the know to join us for brief presentations, then the floor is yours for Q&A. Each Zoom session also includes time to share what's on your mind. 

Free and exclusive to Ohio Travel Association members. Registration is required. Please join us!
