Travel Industry Conference

North Dakota's premier conference for tourism marketers, travel-sector businesses, attractions, events and groups takes place each April. Unfortunately, the 2020 conference in Grand Forks was canceled due to the COVID-19 health crisis. With all the work put into the conference by the committee and host community, we regret that we had to cancel, but your health and safety is our top concern.

The 2021 North Dakota Travel Industry Conference is tentatively scheduled for October in Bismarck.


Travel and tourism is North Dakota's third-largest industry with more than 3,000 businesses and 42,000 jobs supporting the visitor economy. 

The North Dakota Travel Industry Conference supports this industry by bringing continuing education, renown speakers, trainers, best practices and peer-to-peer networking in a three-day conference format. This is the must-attend conference for communities looking to develop their tourism infrastructure and marketers and tourism professionals in North Dakota's travel and tourism industry.

The North Dakota Travel Industry Conference is coordinated by the Destination Marketing Association of North Dakota and the North Dakota Tourism Division.
