The Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce, Santa Fe Convention & Visitors Bureau and numerous local tourism related businesses are uniting to Celebrate Santa Fe Tourism, in conjunction with National Tourism Week, May 4–12, 2013,
The celebration is meant to create excitement about, and shine a spotlight on, Santa Fe’s vital Travel and Tourism sector, which employs more than 7,000 people, represents $620 million in economic output, and is one of the largest industries.
The main event of the celebration is the Celebrate Santa Fe Tourism Expo to be held on Thursday, May 9, 2013 in the Santa Fe Community Convention Center from 10 am to 7pm. Local businesses will be showcasing their attractions, activities, and services to fellow stakeholders in the industry as well as the community at large.
An important component of Celebrate Santa Fe Tourism will be advocacy and outreach to the city council, local officials, and to the media via op-eds, and letters to the editor to encourage the entire community to rise up in support of tourism.
It is important that Santa Fe travel and tourism related businesses participate and engage in the celebration, as well as strongly encourage their employees to attend the Expo.
Santa Fe Businesses will be donating numerous prizes to be raffled off to attendees, and restaurants will be showcasing their offerings.
A short, informative “Celebrate Santa” presentation will be available to all attendees in order to review the pillars of customer service that are so critical to successfully fulfilling the needs of our Santa Fe visitors.
Celebrate Santa Fe Tourism Expo will wrap up with a social mixer from 5pm to 7pm.
