For the first time, the GRCVB Annual Meeting will be a hybrid event originating from A.J. Fletcher Opera Theater at Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Partners may attend in person or opt to stream the meeting from their offices or homes.

In addition to president and CEO Dennis Edwards’ State of Wake County Tourism Report and the presentation of several awards, we will be hearing from a panel comprised of tourism industry professionals with a perspective on recovery from their vantage points. 

"The panelists will represent various facets of tourism in Wake County," said Loren Gold, GRCVB executive vice president. "The conversation will center around industry resiliency, collaborative strategies and how our destination can come back even stronger after the impacts of COVID-19."
