Northstar Travel Media recently acquired Mountain Travel Symposium (MTS), the leading executive conference for the mountain resort and destination industry. For almost 40 years, MTS has provided networking and business-building opportunities to industry leaders, who come to North America from all over the world for the event each spring.

The conference focuses on mountain regions worldwide and the changing trends in marketing, distribution and technology. The 2015 event will take place in April at the Fairmont in Whistler, British Columbia.

“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.”

Northstar Travel Media is the parent company of TravelAge West.
