Nebraska Tourism Conference held virtually this week

LINCOLN, Neb. (October 19, 2020) – Nebraska tourism industry professionals will gather virtually this week for the 2020 Nebraska Tourism Conference. From October 20-22, attendees will hear from a variety of speakers on topics such as editorial impacts and inspiration, benefits of diversity and inclusion and the future of tourism. All sessions are free.

“We’re bummed we can’t see everyone in person this year, but the virtual sessions we’ve put together include important and relevant topics for the climate of the tourism industry now,” said John Ricks, Nebraska Tourism Commission executive director. “Whether you’re an owner of a small business or attraction, or a convention and visitors bureau, we encourage you to join this week.”

Nebraska Tourism will be giving away a free 2021 Nebraska Tourism Conference registration each webinar. Winners will be randomly selected during the live sessions. The 2021 conference will be held in Grand Island.
