Dear New England Tourism Industry,

It's spring in New England!

With vaccinations rolling out, travel guidelines changing, and advance reservations coming in strong, we are looking forward to re-connecting with you all.
To share information about international travel and the industry as it changes, we’ll be offering a series of webinars on various topics. These will start in May beginning with the latest forecast on international research.
May also brings National Travel & Tourism Week. This year the United States Travel Association is encouraging us all to promote the #PowerOfTravel.
Like many, I’ve already started visiting some of my favorite New England destinations, and exploring new locations (many on two wheels!). I look forward to SEEING you along the way, and please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Best regards, 
Chris Jennings, Executive Director
