Dear Travel Colleague:
It’s official – the Travel Promotion Act is now law. It’s a great day for America and the travel community with the United States solidly on the path to welcome millions of new visitors and in the process create thousands of American jobs.
We are extremely grateful to the legislation’s champions and need to thank those who supported it in both the House and Senate. At the same time, it is important that we continue to promote the benefits the Travel Promotion Act will bring to local communities across the country.
While travel promotion isn’t a panacea for our international inbound travel issues – welcoming more visitors also requires continued improvement in visa and entry processes – this is the biggest commitment our government has made to support international travel to our country and the clearest indication to date that Congress is taking travel seriously.
For your convenience and to assist you in your communications plans, we have created a toolkit of resources (see below) that provides a timeline of next steps expected in the transition to create the Corporation for Travel Promotion, as well as several useful templates for crafting messages to your local media and policymakers.
Our newfound industry stature will play a critical role in helping us better manage future issues such as climate change, crisis situations and barriers to travel. It is critical that our industry express its gratitude to those who made passage of the Travel Promotion Act possible. Please take time to help make that happen.

February 3-7, 2010, I attended the Mid Atlantic Seminar in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is the trade fair and seminar for Icelandair to bring their Travel partners from both sides of the Atlantic together in one place. Representing Discover New England, with support from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, and several area resorts, hotels, Inns and attractions, I was able to join the Boston CVB to carry the word of our destination to companies from several European Countries. Stay tuned for our upcoming events that may just bring your company to the doors of our clients.
Since the support for my Destination Company has grown so much, I am compelled to create this site to ease my clients into meeting those that can support them as well.
I’ll be adding more information in the coming days…so check back again soon. Thanks!
