The 2016 Nebraska Tourism Conference them is “Renewing our Legacies”. Lisa Karnatz is the small business development consultant with Nebraska Tourism says the industry in our state is booming.
Karnatz says, “One of our challenges is we don’t have the natural resources that Florida, California and Utah have but I tell you what. We have created a passport program that gets people off the interstate and out into the areas that offer hidden secrets. People are climbing aboard with and discovering the specialties our state has whether it is the coolest, craziest coffee shop or an art stop that we want you to know about had we not done this passport program.”
The conference is October 18th through the 20th in Gering. It typically attracts 150-plus tourism and hospitality industry leaders from across the state to learn the latest techniques in marketing, sales, public relations and more. Topics include Nebraska’s 150 Celebration and the 2017 eclipse.
Officials say this is a great place to learn about what else is happening in Nebraska and to develop tourism strategies. Those who would like more information should log on to visitnebraska.com.
