Partners,

Happy New Year! It is not too late to say that is it? I mean the statute of limitations does not run out on saying Happy New Year until at least the end of the month, right?

I thought about dedicating a few lines of copy to everything our industry accomplished in 2015, but we have recognized some of those and will continue to do so throughout the coming year. So, instead of looking back, let us look forward shall we?

The Lightning Rod, the World’s Fastest Wooden Roller Coaster, opens this spring at Dollywood. That’s World’s Fastest…and that’s pretty cool. 

Jack Daniel Distillery turns the big One Five Oh and it does not look a day older than 135. In excess of 400,000 folks from more than 100 countries go through there annually. With a big birthday celebration, there should be even more visitors this year.

Speaking of birthdays, cue Glenn Miller, Chattanooga Choo Choo, the first recording to be certified gold, is 75 this year.

In October, the ribbon gets cut on The Guest House at Graceland, a new 450-room resort beside Elvis’ famous home.

Tennessee is a hot bed for sports year-round, but huge special events as well. That includes, in 2016 the Battle at Bristol, a football game talked about for 20 years between The University of Tennessee and Virginia Tech in the infield at Bristol Motor Speedway.

There is more, of course; some not as noticeable on the radar, but impactful just as well.

In the winter months, through the end of January at least and into February for youth, when many tourism folks regroup for spring travelers, sportsmen pour into Dyer County in droves. See, Dyer County, on the edge of the Mississippi, is right in the flight path for hordes of ducks flying south. Some ducks do not complete the trip. Just saying.

In Giles County the Opera House was, for years, hiding in plain sight. What the local paper referred to as “one of the largest and most magnificent halls this side of Cincinnati,” opened Dec. 25, 1868 and hosted events through the late 1930s when it closed and remained that way. Through the years, many folks forgot what happened there and even wondered about the curious domed roof atop the building on the square. Years later, inquisitive minds and a crowbar opened the door and exposed the story. They are working to rebuild.

Want ingenuity? In Livingston/Overton County they are proud to be home of Americana Music. No one else laid claim, so they did. Music is performed monthly at Hippie Jack’s and they host a dynamite festival too.

In Gibson County they talk teapots, trains, strawberries and fine art. In Johnson County, where it was challenging to get to the top of Doe Mountain and experience one of the best views in the state, officials, like our early pioneer founders, blazed a trail.

In Bradley County there is a street where, 100 years apart, both General William T. Sherman and Lee Remick walked. Bet those are two names you never thought you would see in the same sentence. Less than 40 years before Sherman, the Cherokee walked the same path…on their way to Oklahoma.

They are saving the theater in South Pittsburg and students save paper clips in Whitwell. Do not know the story there? You will be moved just as the thousands who have been there.

I could go on, but I do not have space nor the ability to touch everything. For as many things as I have mentioned, I have seen five times as many projects that I have not.
I say that to say this: Big things are happening and they are not limited by the size of the counties or towns. And that is exciting.

Let’s have a great 2016 together. 

See you on the road.

Kevin Triplett

Coming Soon!

Mark Your Calendar! Blizzard Back in the ‘Boro in 2016

The 2016 Tennessee Hospitality and Tourism Association’s professional development conference known as the Blizzard will be held Feb. 10-11 at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Conference Center in Murfreesboro. The conference is designed to educate and inspire Convention and Visitors Bureaus and Destination Marketing Organizations in Tennessee while offering a welcoming environment for networking and peer-to-peer resourcing.

“We are delighted to invite convention and visitors bureaus of all sizes and from across the state to join us for this great event,” said Greg Adkins, president and CEO of TnHTA. “We are looking forward to providing cutting-edge and practical information to attendees that will truly help them in their destination management work.”

The Blizzard was an annual event of the former Tennessee Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus. TACVB merged with TnHTA in 2015, and TnHTA is now responsible for providing all education and advocacy programs for member CVBs/DMOs.

“The Blizzard had proved to be a valuable event for the state’s CVB’s,” continued Adkins. “We committed to TACVB that we would continue – and actually enhance – the Blizzard as an important service to the industry.”

As a part of that enhancement, TnHTA is not only working to produce a first-class event featuring noted speakers and important topics; it is also introducing for the first time a “Fundamentals of Destination Management” Seminar on Feb. 9-10. This class, while open at no additional charge to any CVB/DMO registered for Blizzard, is specifically geared towards individuals who are new to their positions (less than 3 – 5 years) in the destination management industry. Designed as a “101” style of curriculum, this class will cover basic areas such as CVB/DMO function and purpose, organizational structures, financial management and funding, constituency services, research, resources, basic marketing, and programming. Prior registration will be required for this class, and a minimum number of attendees will be required for the class to be offered.

Tennessee Welcome Center staff at Fall Creek Falls Inn during recent FAM Tour

Overnight FAMs for Tennessee’s Frontline

Tennessee Welcome Centers are often the first impression for guests to the state. For this reason, it is important to TDTD those on the frontlines not only have onsite resources, but have the opportunity to take part in the Made in Tennessee experiences they promote each day.

Welcome Center staff from across the state recently participated in an overnight familiarization tour. The Upper Cumberland region hosted the first of these tours which will continue in various regions throughout 2016.

“We all know it is much easier to recommend a place you have visited,” said Pete Rosenboro, Assistant Commissioner of Welcome Centers. “By providing this educational experience for our staff, we also provide them with a chance to develop relationships with representatives from the attractions they visit.”

With 33 total participants, the FAM tours also offered networking among staff members from the various welcome centers. A special thank you from TDTD to Tennessee State Parks and the Upper Cumberland Tourism Association for assistance in hosting, facilitating and accommodations. 

Travel Expectations and Mobile Technology

Smart Phones: Don’t Leave Home Without Them

TripBarometer Study Spotlights the Growing Importance of Mobile Technology

A smart phone is nearly as important as a razor or toothbrush when traveling, according to TripAdvisor’s Annual TripBarometer study, with 74 percent of Americans naming their smart phone as a “don’t leave home without it” item. Fortunately for those traveling in tight quarters, 77 percent of Americans named toiletries as their most important must-have items when taking a trip.

The TripBarometer study is the analysis of more than 44,000 survey responses from travelers and the hotel sector worldwide, conducted on behalf of TripAdvisor by independent research firm Ipsos. 

According to the study, 96 percent of Americans will take a domestic vacation in 2016, with 72 percent reporting they will travel internationally.

Seventy-eight percent of Americans report they will spend as much or more in 2016 than in 2015, with an average annual travel budget of $8,400, which ranks third worldwide behind the Australians ($10,900) and Swiss ($10,100), and just ahead of the British ($8,300).

Baby Boomers, who are either retired or in their prime earning years, will spend roughly double ($10,600) what Millennials will spend on travel ($5,300). Culture, recommendations of family and friends and events are the top three reasons travelers choose their destinations.

Although price is still the number one driver when choosing accommodations, social media is playing an ever-larger role in the decision-making process, with accommodation reviews (90 percent) and TripAdvisor reviews (89 percent) mentioned as factors affecting travel decisions.

Americans expect air-conditioning, wireless Internet and parking when they book  accommodations; the lack of these amenities is a deal-breaker for 70 percent, 42 percent and 38 percent of travelers, respectively.

“This year’s TripBarometer shows that U.S. travelers continue to recognize the importance of treating themselves to travel,” said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer, TripAdvisor. “With one third of survey respondents planning to spend more this year, we expect to see even more travelers checking both domestic and international destinations off of their wish lists.”
