Dear Valued Tourism Industry Partners,

National and Tourism Week was all I could have hoped for. I have never been more proud of our partners and business community for the dedication they showed to this year’s event. We had a crowd of nearly 400 people to celebrate our industry and cheer for our 160 nominees and 14 winners. It was absolutely fantastic!

Before I again congratulate the winners, please let me reiterate how much each of you means to our industry.  We rely on you and your dedication to your work and we could not operate without you! We appreciate each one of you all year round.

It was great to have a little fun competition for top billing in several super key categories in the hospitality business. Congratulations to all the nominees and thanks to everyone in the industry for all you do to make our destination great!
