Tourism Industry News
Hello Industry Partners,
Most of us have settled into a new routine that involves working from home, having virtual meetings and several phone calls throughout the day. We are all trying to figure out what the plan looks like moving forward. The same is true for us at IOTD. We too are planning the next steps. We are diligently working on a marketing message to share once restrictions are lifted and travel is allowed. We want the spirit of travel to be alive again, for our cities and towns buzzing with life, people staying at our hotels, dining in our restaurants and visiting our attractions.
Visit Indiana Week, in conjunction with National Travel & Tourism Week, looks a lot different this year. We are creating a series of videos to show the love and passion of our industry. Lt. Governor Crouch will kick off the week with the first message. Thank you to all who participated. We could not have done this without you! #INThisTogether
As a reminder, Indiana Tourism continues to do weekly stakeholder calls to share best practices and answer questions related to the COVID-19 situation. We also have a webpage with resources from the state and national organizations. IOTD and IDDC have partnered with Rockport Analytics to research and determine the economic impact that COVID-19 is and will have on our industry. They will provide an Indiana specific index that will assist in recovery planning. See the details below on how you can help.
For the sake of your mental health, it is essential to slot a few minutes each day to decompress and take a deep breath. See below for suggestions on our blog page.
Stay safe and healthy.
