Featured Session: Arts as a Tourism Driver at NJ Annual Tourism Conference
Did you know: Non-local attendees spend twice as much as their local counterparts when attending an arts program ($60.57 vs. $29.77) according to the recently completed Arts & Economic Prosperity 6 Study (AE6). The Arts bring our communities together, highlight local treasurers, and offer an opportunity to bring new visitors to our respective regions. For Economic Development and Destination Marketing Organizations, partnership with our local communities, businesses, and arts organizations are essential to our market’s success.
