Save the Date: Tourism Development Strategy Focus Groups

The Division of Travel & Tourism (DTTD) is beginning an exciting process to develop a Tourism Development Strategy (TDS) to guide future tourism industry growth and development across the state. To facilitate this process, DTTD has engaged JLL’s Global Tourism and Destinations practice to lead the planning process. The TDS planning process will include several opportunities for stakeholder input to further inform and guide the outcomes. The first opportunity to participate in the TDS process will be during the kickoff week of 10/31.

We will be having three to four focus groups per region. The groups will be focused on a certain area of tourism activity/business per region. The hope is to get individuals within activities to participate in these sessions. Find out when, where and the topics of the focus groups in your area by selecting a region below:
