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.”

    If you’re really serious about hunting, you’re probably not listening to this. Depending on where you are in the state, the sun’s either up already or sunrise isn’t far away. If you’re a die-hard hunter, you’re probably already hunkered down in a field waiting for the geese to come in, out in the timber trying […]
  • Not all bad news in judge’s decision to relist wolves - September 30, 2014
    U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson handed down a ruling last week that removed wolves from Wyoming control and put them back under the protection of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
