  • Very upbeat messages were delivered at this year's Governor's Conference on Travel & Tourism, organized by MOTT and sponsored, in part, by the Cape Cod Chamber. Research and trends indicate a movement toward pre-recession business activity for the hospitality industry. A prediction of 2-3% growth for the industry was well accepted by those in the room, many reporting strong advance bookings.
  • Chairwomen Eileen Donoghue (Senate) and Sarah Peake (House) spoke to several hundred industry people at the Governor's Conference reception at the State House on Tuesday, expressing their support for adequate tourism promotion resources and thanking the industry for its local job creation.  Senator Dan Wolf, Reps Turner and Vieira also were at the event, as participants in the Tourism Arts & Culture Development Committee.  Pictured in photo: Senator Eileen Donoghue, Chamber CEO Wendy Northcross, Representative Sarah Peake and Senator Dan Wolf)

Fun Fact from our State Legislature on Travel and Tourism: Every $1 spent on travel marketing returns $5 to the state and local communities in the form of taxes (payroll, property, meals & lodging.)
