Regional Cooperative Tourism Program

RCTP_dashboard_Roll-Up_screenSeven Regional Destination Management Organizations (RDMOs) recognized by Travel Oregon develop and submit regional plan proposals for use of state dollars.

Each RDMO develops and enacts a two-year tourism destination management plan that involves the input of regional tourism stakeholders and Travel Oregon.

100 percent of Regional Cooperative Tourism Program (RCTP) funds must be used toward programs or projects that are in alignment with Travel Oregon’s Strategic Plan.

View your region’s plan below. If you’re uncertain which tourism region your town falls under, search with your zipcode.

Travel Oregon, in partnership with the RDMOs, is hosting Regional Stakeholder Gatherings in October and November 2017.

The gatherings allow attendees to:

  •     Report back on the process and implementation of the 2017-2019 RCTP Plan and how stakeholder input was utilized.
  •     Engage stakeholders to identify opportunities within the plan to leverage and participate in collaborative work with regional partners.
  •     Strengthen and revisit the regional vision for tourism in the region.
  •     Establish participation among tourism stakeholders.
