Wyoming Governor’s Hospitality and Tourism Conference -
Look forward to Wyoming’s premier hospitality and tourism conference to be held on February 23-25, 2020 at Little America in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This incredible conference is attended annually by over 350 industry representatives and has grown into a “must attend” event dedicated to celebrating and educating Wyoming’s second largest industry. You will have the opportunity to meet and network with industry leaders and buyers from across the state. Your involvement not only provides you an opportunity to engage more deeply with your customers, but also reinforces your desire to insure that Wyoming’s strong hospitality and tourism industry is sustained. There are opportunities to exhibit and sponsor events, aimed at networking and raising your visibility with the industry. The trade show is a dynamic marketplace held in the middle of all the action, taking place in the grand ballroom where all of the major meal events and legislative reception are held.
Wyoming Hospitality and Tourism Fall Summit -
Our annual Fall Hospitality and Tourism Summit will be held in Cody, Wyoming in 2019. The summit assists businesses in gaining a better understanding of the current legislative issues and how they can better advocate for their industry. This event also provides attendees an opportunity to learn and share marketing and operational best practices. There is not a full trade show during this event, but sponsors are provided a table outside of the meeting rooms to display information and products.
