Tourism commission updates long-term plan
Lt. Gov. Brian K. Krolicki said last week the Nevada Commission on Tourism will target U.S. consumer markets that have large populations with convenient driving distance or easy air access to Nevada and international markets whose travelers have a strong likelihood of visiting Nevada, such as Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Germany.
The plan includes:
• Expanding the promotion of meetings and conventions, weddings and honeymoons, and Nevada’s parks and museums
• Expanding Web content to appeal to niche markets such as travelers seeking pet-friendly accommodations, and conducting media campaigns for various ethnic groups.
• Working to develop sales blitz programs for increasing overnight stays in rural communities
