Return of the Tourists

With the summer tourism season now in full swing in the Carolinas, leaders in the industry are expecting a banner year in the number of visitors to our region. On this program Duane Parrish, Director of South Carolina’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, discusses the post-recession recovery in tourism and the job of promoting the Carolinas to a global audience. Brad Dean of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Lynn Minges of the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association join the conversation.
