Attend an Oregon Tourism Listening Session in Your Region

March 2, 2018

Travel Oregon, in partnership with Oregon’s seven regional destination management organizations (RDMOs), invites you to join one of 10 Oregon Tourism Listening Sessions across the state this spring. We want to hear from anyone who touches the tourism industry, including business owners, land managers, volunteers, nonprofits, policymakers and more, as we value all perspectives and opinions.

Your input is very important. Listening session findings will help shape the future of tourism in Oregon through Travel Oregon’s statewide strategic plan, as well as each of the seven RDMOs’ regional plans. Session attendees will have the chance to meet their RDMO representative and Travel Oregon employees, learn about and provide input on your region’s 2017-19 plans as well as the statewide 2019-21 strategic plan. All sessions are interactive. Attendees will be invited to partake in small group table exercises, provide input and share opinions.

Sessions are three hours; food and beverages provided.

Pre-registration is requested here.  Please share the link with partners through your communication channels.
