Matt Hyslop, Head of Destination Consulting & Director at Colliers, echoed the statement and said, “90% of the folks (in the industry) are right here. Within two days, I’ve spoken to everybody and reconnected or met new people. There are so many great projects coming forward.”

As the industry continues to grow, this year’s Summit event is expected to be one of the largest ever.
