Get a Head Start on Your 2020 “Crab Tank” Pitch

Have you got a can’t-miss marketing platform to increase overnight stays in Maryland? Submit your idea and see if you’ve got what it takes to win over the judges at the Maryland Tourism & Travel Summit’s (MTTS) annual “Crab Tank” pitch competition. If selected, you will make your pitch live at MTTS in November and our judges, the “Big Crabs,” will pick the pitch with the claws to get it done. Winning submissions will go beyond traditional travel “silos” and combine Maryland’s winning travel possibilities including group travel, multicultural/diversity travel, human-powered recreation, and family fun. The winning pitch will receive $50,000 in marketing support provided by OTD, including a full-page ad in Destination Maryland, social media support, coverage on VisitMaryland.org and in OTD’s newsletters, and more. All submissions must be received by October 15. Keep your eye on Insights for more information as we get closer to Crab Tank 2020!
