Welcome to the interactive web schedule for the 2019 Vermont Tourism Summit! The schedule is subject to change (as of March 27, 2019). Please check back for updates.

  • The conference schedule is hosted in SCHED which allows you to search within the schedule, and filter the schedule to show items only occurring on a certain date or within a track.
  • To view only a certain type of presentation or track, locate the heading "Filter By Type" in the navigation bar. As an example, try clicking on "Marketing".
  • The default view for the schedule is "Simple" which only shows the start time and title of the agenda item. Hover over the button that says "Schedule" to see the different view options. The "Expanded" option will show start and end times, room location, and session description, if there is one.
  • You can build your own schedule by creating a free account with SCHED by selecting "SIGN UP." Watch the "how-to" video to learn more about using Sched.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Adding agenda items to your schedule through this app does not sign you up for a session. If an agenda item says "pre-registration required" or charges an additional fee, you need to add the item to your registration through the online registration system.

Brent Karner

ClearLake Furniture
In 1985, Brent Karner graduated from North Bennet Street School in Boston where he learned the art of fine woodworking. After graduating from North Bennet, prior to starting ClearLake Furniture, he spent many years crafting 18th and 19th century reproductions as well as contemporary furniture for clients throughout New England. From 1972 through 1995, Brent spent his summers on staff at Deerfoot Lodge, a Christian camp for young men located in the Adirondack Mountains in Speculator, New York. Brent now serves on their Board of Directors. Through the funding of a recent Working Lands grant he is forming an all Vermont-made Kitchen showroom, at Clearlake Furniture’s restored barn showroom in Ludlow, VT right next to Okemo Ski resort. The entire made in Vermont display will showcase wooden cabinets and flooring made from locally sourced trees; in addition to Vermont made counter tops, lighting, and more to demonstrate the array of things you can buy to take home a “Piece of Vermont”.  He would like to share the success stories he has had with tourists and customers when telling the story of forest to furniture.
