Travel Conference Continues In Cheyenne

Shober_Diane

The 2013 Wyoming Governor’s Hospitality and Tourism Conference continues in Cheyenne today.  Wyoming Travel Commission Director Diane Shober says the conference provides an opportunity to network, educate and interact with state legislators.  In Shober’s words, “we do share with them the value and importance of the tourism industry and what it means to Wyoming’s economy and what it means for jobs.”  A recent report shows a 4% increase in visitors to Wyoming and a 7.6%  increase in tax revenues to the state.  Shober says it is the product Wyoming offers that brings people to the state.  Specifically, she points to destinations like Yellowstone, Grand Teton and Devil’s Tower as a sort of right of passage for generations of visitors.  The conference concludes tonight with the Travel Commission’s annual banquet and “Big Wyo Award.”

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
  • Quiet, Seasonal Weather Expected Today - October 22, 2014
