Be A 2024 Tourism Champion!
Look What We're Planning for 2024:
Thank you to all of our 2023 Tourism Champions!
The commitment of 30+ destinations to our programming and consumer travel shows schedule had a profound impact in 2023:
- Many of you were able to appreciate our new booth presentation firsthand in Oswego. We're attracting more attention and providing a better, more interactive experience for consumers.
- We attended more domestic and international shows than ever before, added Ottawa to our schedule and exhibiting in Canada a total of 5 times. We promised 12 travel shows and we over delivered. And we reported on each show in the weekly NYSTIA newsletter.
- We added member events to our schedule, bringing the Tourism Champions exhibit booth to festivals and attractions in August with plans for more in October.
- Our Tourism Champions digital visitors site will go live in the 4th quarter - If you haven't completed your Champions portal page on our new digital visitor site - contact Nate Gresock (firstname.lastname@example.org) now!
I could add more details in recapping progress in 2023, but I want to share the exciting news about what we're planning for 2024. The utilization of Market NY grant and sponsor support is planned, enabling us to take the program to a new level!
Please take a look at the agreement / sign-up form linked below. The investment is the same ($3,500) as in 2023, but will not include your 2024 membership dues because of Tourism Matching Funds and Market New York Matching Funds guidelines. With our bulk participation rates, negotiated Co-Op discounts and grant support, this package will save you in excess of $5,000. The travel show schedule alone would cost $4,500+ a la carte.
