April 4, 2017

Travel Oregon’s 2017-2019 Draft Strategic Plan opened for public comment on March 21, 2017. A public hearing and comment opportunity will be held on Tuesday, April 11 at the Oregon Tourism Commission Meeting in Hood River. Review the draft plan by clicking here.

This biennial strategic plan was developed with extensive input from Oregon’s travel and tourism industry, community leaders and others, through an industrywide survey and a series of town halls and meetings throughout the state, and by incorporating the latest industry research and data.

The strategic overview is designed to give the reader a quick and substantive look at the strategic priorities that will guide Travel Oregon for the next two years. Further, the full plan provides the context for Travel Oregon’s strategic imperatives, initiatives and measures.

This plan is relevant to everyone even tangentially engaged in the travel and tourism industry. The vitality and viability of the travel and tourism industry is a critical asset for all Oregonians now, more than ever.

Here are important next steps regarding the consideration of this plan:

  1. Please take a moment to review the plan and then submit your feedback to us online.
