Good Morning Tourism Partners,
I’m extremely proud of the work the CVB is doing to help our community become vaccinated against the coronavirus. Thousands of citizens have been immunized at our Convention Center, and the work continues. For more information, or if you need to sign up yourself or a loved one, visit the Virginia Department of Health website.
Earlier this week, I joined other CVB leaders as we tuned in to see U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow present his “2021 State Of The Travel Industry” address. Roger, as many of you are aware, has been our travel champion for more than 30 years and is one of the most-respected travel professionals in the world. As expected, there were the inevitable hard facts, however, Roger also offered inspiration and hope to those of us in the travel and tourism industry. I think I speak for my CVB colleagues when I say Roger’s words spoke directly to us, and my hope is they will also resonate with each of you also. You will find the link to Roger’s transcript below:
STATE OF THE TRAVEL INDUSTRY 2021: “Travel’s Next Chapter“
As always, my team and I are here should any of you have a question or need.
CVB Interim Director
