"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."

New data shows that inbound international travel grew 5.2 percent in May, marking the 13th straight month of positive year-over-year growth.
The 2017 "The Power of Travel Promotion" study is helpful in supporting funding for your state tourism division. Page ten shows the positive economic impact of tourism. And, a strong theme of the guide is stated on page 31 - “Destinations that fail to invest consistently in travel promotion will see visitors – and jobs and tax revenues – go elsewhere."
Halfway through the second quarter of the year, uncertainty is on the upswing. The timeliness of overhauls related to healthcare as well as the tax system have become questionable. As a result, consumer confidence and business confidence, while up smartly over the past six months, appear to be in “evaluation mode” as Washington adjusts to the new administration and the controversies that have developed. However, the fundamentals related to the economy are sound. The labor market is healthy; wages are growing and even accelerating. The dollar has moderated slightly since the new year while inflation remains moderate.
