Oregon Tourism and Hospitality Industry Consortium
Tourism in Oregon is an $8.8 billion industry and employs more than 92,000 Oregonians. In addition, the broader hospitality industry, to which tourism is intricately linked, is billions of dollars larger and employs tens of thousands of additional Oregonians. To fully realize the potential of tourism in Oregon, we must understand and utilize the industry’s role in the much larger and exponentially more important Tourism and Hospitality Industry.
Members of Oregon’s Tourism and Hospitality Industry are united by a common purpose and focused on broad strategic economic outcomes for the industry and the state. This shared point of view encourages meaningful and productive dialogue with policymakers and business and industry leaders throughout Oregon.
The Tourism and Hospitality Industry generates continued momentum, a shared leadership philosophy and a fundamental belief that what is good for tourism is good for Oregon. As a result, the industry is in a position to own a greater, more visible and more valued role in shaping the future of Oregon.
Currently, Travel Oregon is facilitating the meetings of the Tourism and Hospitality Consortium Steering Committee. The steering committee is made up of representatives from both public and private entities and meets on a quarterly basis to discuss impacts on tourism, hospitality and other related interests throughout Oregon.
