State Works On Attracting Tourists
What to do to keep tourists coming to West Virginia in the wake of the checmical spill that impacted water supplies....that is the issue facing the state's tourism industry. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin is talking with Commerce Secretary Keith Burdette and other tourism officials about developing a promotional message in the wake of the spill, according to the state Tourism Commissioner Betty Carver. Funding, a slogan, and potential markets haven't been determined yet. The campaign funding would be in addition to what the state already spends on tourism promotion.
