With over 400 tourism representatives in attendance, this was the largest tourism conference to date!
Utah Tourism Industry Association
The Utah Tourism Industry Association (UTIA) is the trade association for the tourism industry in the state of Utah. The overall mission of UTIA is to serve as the coordinating body for the combined interests of associations, chambers, organizations, businesses, and individuals engaged in serving and developing tourism in Utah. UTIA is an organization that focuses on issues of concern to all organizations involved in tourism rather than just the narrower interests of individual tourism entities.
Utah Office of Tourism
The Utah Office of Tourism promotes tourism into the state through advertising and media. We are an office within the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. Our mission is “to brand and promote Utah’s great experiences and destinations for visitors and citizens in an inspiring way to support and enhance economic vitality and quality of life in our state.” We operate several programs to assist Utah’s tourism industry including marketing and advertising, research and planning, publications, information services, media relations and cooperative programs.
The Utah Tourism Conference is produced in partnership with the Utah Hotel & Lodging Association.
