Space Remaining in the 2015 Oklahoma Spring Insert Program
In 2014, many of OTIA’s members participated in Madden Media’s Spring 2014 Getaway Guide, a 6-page insert program that was distributed in newspapers throughout surrounding states.
The campaign was a huge success; advertisers received almost 2,900 leads on average, contributing to almost 3,500 trips to Oklahoma since March 2014. These trips resulted in millions of dollars of economic impact to the state.
In light of the program’s success, Madden Media has grown the 2015 Oklahoma Spring Regional Newspaper Insert program to 8 pages. There is a still a half page remaining open for interested advertisers. If you would like to participate, please contact Daryl Whitworth, CTE as soon as possible.
OTIA was thrilled to host three amazing Lt. Governor’s Travel & Tourism Summits this year in Guymon, Sulphur, and Tahlequah. Outstanding speakers presented on a variety of topics, and Lt. Governor Todd Lamb once again joined us for the festivities. We've posted pictures from all events!
The travel industry added 30,000 jobs in October, a significant increase following a drop in travel employment last month due to Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, according to the U.S. Travel Association’s analysis of Friday’s Labor Department employment report.
Members of the OTIA will come together for Hospitality Day at the Capitol, where we will spend time speaking to legislators about issues facing our industry, and then culminate in a fabulous reception with more than 600 members and legislators at the Chevy Bricktown Events Center.
Here's something the Trump administration, congressional Democrats and Republicans and elected officials from the heartland to the coasts all agree on: There's no greater travel destination in the world than the U.S., from exceptional travel experiences to world-class meetings and conferences that drive business and grow local economies. The CEO of the U.S. Travel Association argues that America's greatness doesn't sell itself. It needs a properly funded Brand USA.
