Postponing Oregon Rural Tourism Conference
The health and safety of our industry partners, visitors and all Oregonians are our top priority. Based on the latest Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and State of Oregon guidelines, Travel Oregon is postponing the Oregon Rural Tourism Conference (originally scheduled for April 26-28).
All 2020 Rural Tourism Conference attendees, sponsors and exhibitors will be fully refunded.
We are working closely with Sunriver Resort and Visit Central Oregon on rescheduling and have created a Frequently Asked Questions section below to keep conference attendees updated with the latest information. We will follow up with next steps as soon as arrangements have been made.
