Event Details

Lori Nunnery puts her 25+ years of experience in the tourism and hospitality fields to work every day as executive director of the Convention & Visitors Bureau of Jackson, Tennessee. And that work is important since Tennessee tourism generated $16.8 billion in domestic and international travel spending in 2020 according to newly released economic impact data from U.S. Travel Association and Tourism Economics.

While that’s a big number, because of the impact to the industry from Covid-19, it was a 31.6 percent decline from the previous year.

Nunnery is leading the way in working with those in her region and around the state in implementing tactics that will see Tennessee’s number of visitors return bigger and better than ever.

In her presentation, she will share some of the opportunities that exist for those who work for or with tourism and hospitality-related businesses.

Lunch included.

Free for members and college students, $15 for non-members, advance reservation required.
