By harnessing the collective power of the industry for a common purpose, we can tackle some of the seemingly unmanageable issues facing destinations. Our Meaningful Travel Summits provide not only immediate impact through volunteering but help create lasting impact by leveraging the power of the travel and tourism industry.

As a destination with incredible natural assets, it’s not hard to see why North Lake Tahoe is considered one of the most beautiful places in the world. But Tahoe remains pristine because of the commitments of local businesses and individuals to keep Tahoe blue.

We will focus our work and conversations around water, climate change, forest health and how a destination like Lake Tahoe overcomes the challenges created as a popular tourism destination. What lessons can we as a greater industry learn from our colleagues and destination partners? Join us in North Lake Tahoe for two days of inspiration and action.
