Wisconsin Tourism and Economic Development Promotion…What Did We Learn from 2020?
Presented By: Andrew Nussbaum, Wisconsin Department of Tourism

Click HERE for a message from our speaker!

2019 was the best year for tourism economic impact in Wisconsin….Followed by 2020 which needs little discussion about the challenges, but deserves much analysis about the opportunities that were identified. How do we position our communities for 2021 and beyond, and what have we learned?
A positive attitude and great public relations will find solutions that will continue to grow the economic climate in our communities.

About the Speaker: 

Andrew Nussbaum joined the Department of Tourism in 2012, after having spent his entire professional career in hospitality, marketing, and tourism.  His focus with companies and organizations has always been to grow their customer service effectiveness, a passion that began with his first restaurant job in 1984. 

He loves traveling the state meeting with folks and helping them get the word out about all the great things there are to see and do in Wisconsin. Having worked with various regional and statewide collaboration efforts, Andrew enjoys bringing organizations together to share ideas and resources.

Tourism is a large part of economic development in Wisconsin, and the visitor’s experience here is paramount.
