A quick reminder that Kansas Travel Guide Early Bird Deadline is almost here! Early bird for travel guide listings will close May 31st. Early bird pricing is $80 for a general listing and $120 for a highlighted listing. Payment for travel guide listings is due on July 1st. We understand that because of the unforeseen circumstances surrounding COVID-19,  budgets are being reevaluated. To accommodate these sudden changes, we’re offering to extend the payment for listings deadline to December 15, 2020.  Please email Andrea to take advantage of this opportunity.

The next Governor's Council on Travel and Tourism meeting will be held virtually on Friday, June 5 from 9-noon. Registration will be required for the meeting and after registration, you will receive a confirmation email containing information on joining the meeting. You can find more information on the GCTT at TravelKS.com.

Thank you all so much for making the Kansas Tourism/TIAK weekly COVID-19 meetings a smashing success! We have spent time reviewing the feedback forms sent out in the last weekly update and we had an incredible response and completion rate. After reviewing feedback, we have decided to continue the calls on a bi-weekly basis and will start incorporating topics outside of the coronavirus scope in the coming weeks.
