About the DNE Summit.

The Discover New England Annual Tourism Summit and International Marketplace is the only New England travel trade event where New England hospitality businesses are able to meet directly with international tour operators and receptive operators who arrange trips for tens of thousands of international travelers annually.

In 2019, DNE facilitated more than 5,000 meetings between international buyers and New England suppliers. Each year Discover New England (DNE) hosts 80+ international tour operators and US receptive operators. These individuals meet with New England tourism representatives from lodging properties, attractions, destination marketing organizations and state tourism offices to learn about travel products, establish relationships and initiate contracts for both group tours and foreign independent travelers (FIT). If you have not attended the DNE Summit before, contact us today to be added to the mailing list.

2020 Summit Postponed

After careful consideration, the board of directors and staff at Discover New England (DNE) have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Discover New England Summit due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 virus.

The Summit, originally scheduled for May 11-12, 2020 in Newry, Maine, will be postponed until next spring.

Discover New England is committed to holding a superior event and marketplace for the New England tourism industry and international tour operators. With the situation evolving rapidly, moving forward with the extensive planning an event like this requires is not prudent at this time. 

DNE staff will be processing refunds for all those who have paid registrations, exhibitor space and/or sponsorships for this year’s Summit.

Our concern is for people all over the world who are affected by this health challenge, and we are hopeful for a swift resolution that keeps New England residents, as well as our visitors, safe and healthy.

We will be providing updates on the 2021 DNE Summit throughout the year and we are looking forward to seeing everyone next spring in Maine.
