Register Now for Governor's Conference on Tourism

Please join us at The Oklahoma Governor’s Conference on Tourism, October 18-20, 2009 at the Renaissance Tulsa Hotel and Cox Convention Center.

During these challenging times our individual and collective success depends on our ability to strategically combine our resources. This year’s conference theme stresses the importance of working together to move our industry forward and will provide inspiration and insight for the actions we need to take.

This is the “don’t miss” event for our industry, featuring two days of workshops, keynote presentations and opportunities to connect with colleagues. (You may even have some fun!) I guarantee you will leave the conference with several ideas you can put into action the minute you return to your office. You will also learn how to take advantage of the hottest trends in the travel and tourism industry.

Workshops and general sessions will cover topics such as using and optimizing social media, finding your personal leadership style, developing tourism initiatives with American Indian tribes in Oklahoma, attracting film projects to your community, writing itineraries that work, engaging value seekers, exceeding customer expectations and more.

And, as always, our industry’s all-stars will be honored during the annual Redbud Awards dinner on Monday night.

I look forward to seeing you there!
