"OTIA is the cement that holds the tourism industry in Oklahoma together. For 35 years OTIA has produced the Conference on Tourism, one of the most worthwhile events for tourism in Oklahoma. It has been refreshing to me to watch over the past six years how the members and the Association management has maintained the highest degree of integrity and concern for those involved in bringing the multi-billion dollar tourism business to Oklahoma. The OTIA has been the champion for all things related to attracting tourists, business travel, and events to Oklahoma. We look forward to continued involvement with OTIA."

Last year more than 705 million vacation days went unused. How can we help America put those vacation days to use? By encouraging them to PLAN. Research shows that individuals who plan are more likely to use all of their time off, take more vacation days at once and report greater levels of happiness at work and at home. Let's get Americans to commit their time off for the rest of the year at the start of the year! Oklahoma's destination have something to offer everyone!
