National Travel & Tourism Week

Sheridan Travel & Tourism is vital to our economy.

We're in the midst of National Travel & Tourism Week, and the busy folks with Sheridan's Travel & Tourism office are gearing up for an active summer season.

Rich Bridger has been on the Travel & Tourism Commission for nine years, and he talks about the cycle he's seen with Sheridan's, and Wyoming's, industry.

STT recently issued statistics on just how significant the industry is for Sheridan County in terms of revenues generated: $97.4 million in travel spending, and travel provided employment for 1,120 people, while generating a payroll of $28.4 million. Bridger tells us what's on deck for the next three months.

STT has also been quite successful in conducting promotional campaigns, not only throughout the United States, but in Europe as well.
