West Virginia aims to boost tourism through conference this week

State leaders are talking tourism this week at the annual Governor's Conference on Tourism. State Tourism Director Betty Carver says there are about two hundred tourism industry leaders there, ranging from small businesses and Convention and Visitors Bureaus to bigger resorts and casinos. The goal is to connect the tourism related businesses and get them working together to offer a full slate of activities from one end of the state to the other. The conference runs through Wednesday.
