Civic Tourism 2 - Creating & Marketing Your Somewhere

I just happened on to this conference a few years ago when the first one was held in Arizona. Now the second is being held this fall in Rhode Island, and you can bet on it... I’ll be there.

Civic Tourism is about place-making. In fact, I don’t use the term “civic,” because it doesn’t quite fit yet for me. But this whole movement is about place-based tourism. Using tourism as a way to shape, restore and preserve place-based assets.
