"The location is always a big draw for us to attend. Initially, sometimes the destination seems an unusual location to host but it shows that it is not just the destination that matters but what we can learn from and experience within that destination; local sightseeing, the level of service venues are willing to provide and the ability to experience first hand what can be done in the surrounding area is critical. I feel the destinations ITMI has offered have been outstanding. I’m in awe of the pull ITMI has to gain buy-in from destinations and their ability to always feature interesting sites and excellent properties."                               Emma Pitre, Destination America
