Northstar Travel Media Acquires Mountain Travel Symposium

Northstar Travel Media, the parent company of Successful Meetings, has acquired Mountain Travel Symposium, an annual conference that attracts mountain destination travel professionals from all over the world in North America.

Now nearing its 40th year, the conference is the premier event focusing on mountain regions globally and the changing trends in marketing, distribution, and technology. The weeklong event provides travel industry executives the opportunity to meet one-to-one at a variety of networking functions. 

“The addition of Mountain Travel Symposium is an exciting opportunity for our company,” said Thomas Kemp, Chairman and CEO of Northstar Travel Media. “We have been rapidly growing our portfolio of high-quality face-to-face events serving the global travel industry. The addition of MTS, following our recent acquisition of Asia-based Web in Travel, strengthens our commitment to serving our core markets with unique and informative events.” 

The 2015 Mountain Travel Symposium is scheduled in April at the Fairmont in Whistler in British Columbia, Canada.
