You may ask, “Why should we, as an arts organization, attend the NJ Travel Industry Association’s Conference on Tourism?”
Some things to consider:
And if that STILL isn’t enough to convince you that the arts are inherently linked to New Jersey tourism, then remember that you and your organization might just win a JerseyArts.com Peoples Choice Award! Voting is officially closed, and the winners will be honored at the NJTIA Tourism Conference on Friday March 13. Following the awards breakfast, Americans for the Arts Vice President of Research and Policy Randy Cohen will be speaking in more detail about current research and the impacts of cultural tourism.
If you are still unable to attend, please consider contacting Laura Slomka to donate something wonderful to the cause. Every performance ticket, admission pass, and once-in-a-lifetime experience serves as a reminder that the arts and tourism work best when they work together!
