I recently had the opportunity to deliver remarks during the Ohio Travel Association’s Spirit of Ohio Travel conference. I appreciated the opportunity to highlight some of the many ways the industry has come together during what has been a difficult past six months. I have been so impressed by the way the industry quickly adapted, working creatively with partners to safely reopen and continue to provide a safe experience for visitors.

At a time when budgets are tight and you’re needing to extend your marketing budget, I hope you’ll consider taking part in the 2021 Ohio. Find It Here. Co-Op Advertising Program.
