2nd Annual Tourism Day
The Vermont Chamber is advocating for a $500,000 increase for tourism promotion. As you are aware, while many competing and neighboring states have increased their destination marketing investment, Vermont has decreased its invest by 6% over the last 5 years. Increased funds are needed to ensure that Vermont’s iconic experiences are amplified through the State’s destination marketing. Tourism is a significant economic driver, with visitors spending $2 billion in Vermont communities. Without increased investment, the full economic potential of the tourism industry is constrained, and Vermont risks losing more of our market share to other destinations as funding continues to decline.
How can you can help?
- Sign the petition to show support of the increased investment
- Attend Tourism Day at the State House on January 15, 2020
