Destination Marketing Association International (DMAI) has selected Brandon Holstein, Account Manager of the Madison Area Sports Commission for its renowned "30 Under 30" program. The program focuses on identifying and developing the talent of destination marketing professionals, 30 years of age and under, through increased access and exposure to industry networking and thought leadership.
“Our nominating Committee reviewed every submission, and ultimately delivered an impressive roster for 2016,” said Bob Lander, Chair of DMAI. “I look forward to recognizing these 30 future leaders who have already demonstrated exceptional potential.”
“We are so excited about this nomination,” said Deb Archer, President and CEO of the Madison Area Sports Commission. “Brandon has a ton of energy, a thirst for knowledge and a customer focus that has helped to earn him some very significant wins this early on his career. We are so proud of his work, and this formal recognition is a very important honor for him, and for the Sports Commission,” she added.
The 2016 honorees originate from a variety of destinations and backgrounds, from National Tourism Bureaus such as Brand USA and the Bermuda Tourism Authority to local Convention and Visitors Bureaus in Victoria, Texas and Macon, Georgia.
Now in its sixth year, ’30 Under 30’ is supported by founding program partner SearchWide, and sponsored by IMEX and USAE. The honorees will convene for the first time at DMAI’s Annual Convention August 1-3 in Minneapolis, MN. Recipients will be recognized Monday, August 1 immediately following the Opening Keynote featuring Abigail Posner.
