Join us to explore how the Sustainable Tourism Lab at OSU-Cascades works with communities worldwide to help them develop roadmaps for economic, community and environmental sustainability, that prioritize the needs of both visitors and residents.
Todd Montgomery, director of the lab, will share his studies about community sentiment toward tourism in Pacific Northwest communities, including Bend, as well as in Alaska, Hawaii, and the Northern Mariana Islands. Learn how his findings help destination marketing organizations like Visit Bend and local community leaders determine how to invest in tourism in ways that benefit the economy and residents.
Kevney Dugan, CEO of Visit Bend will address why community sentiment data is valuable to Visit Bend and other tourism organizations. He’ll also outline efforts underway to create a sustainable tourism-community balance in Bend.
Science Pubs are made possible with support from Worthy Brewing.
