Travel Takeaways

As the summer travel season begins, the business of tourism is booming in communities across the Carolinas. Hotels and resorts are reporting longer stays by guests and more spending by business travellers than in recent years. On this episode, four travel and tourism leaders discuss the investments made in marketing and infrastructure to keep visitors coming back, including some who eventually move their families and their businesses to their favorite vacation destination. The Asheville Chamber’s Kit Cramer, Brad Dean of the Myrtle Beach Chamber, Lynn Minges of the N.C. Department of Commerce and Chris Stone of the Greenville Convention and Visitors Bureau share their success stories.
