The Innovators Showdown seeks to spread good ideas in Almost Heaven. This new session will put the spotlight on new programs and projects that creative West Virginians have developed throughout all aspects of the tourism industry. The applicants selected for this panel of presenters will have an opportunity to spend 7 minutes or less sharing their idea with conference attendees. Each of the programs or projects shared should be something that conference attendees can implement and adapt in their home regions or organizations.

The audience will have an opportunity to vote on the most useful and relevant innovation, and the winner will receive a special prize.
