Thank you for joining us for the virtual 2020 Kansas Tourism Conference. And thank you to TIAK for the great partnership that we have with you in putting on the conference. This conference truly was a team effort. The partnership between TIAK and the Kansas tourism division has blossomed this year with the development of the virtual Huddles and then a virtual Conference. I believe we are stronger as an industry when we work together. I hope that every one of you were able to take away something that will help you as we move forward into 2021.
After the final 2020 virtual Kansas Tourism Conference session, I was scrolling through some social media accounts when I ran across this post. “Plot Twist: 2020 has actually been the best year of your life. You’ve faced challenge after challenge, you’ve adapted, and you’ve overcome. 2020 has forced you to grown exponentially. Don’t take that for granted.”
Although I don’t think I can say that 2020 has been the BEST year for the Kansas Tourism Industry, I can agree that we have faced many challenges and have grown significantly. We have much work still to do to come out on the other side of this pandemic, but I agree, let’s not lose sight of how far we have come and all that we have learned this year.
