Contributing over 13 billion dollars to the economy of Kentucky in 2014, tourism is a key economic driver in the Bluegrass.

Bluegrass Tourism Marketing Association provides networking and educational opportunities to the stakeholders in the industry.  By working together, we will encourage the growth of our industry and, through that growth, gain revenue in our individual businesses.  At our monthly meetings, our members have the opportunity to network, to learn about the host location, and to receive information from our speaker.  Topics include upcoming events in the area, research on the industry from the State, marketing opportunities, social media, and much more.  Gaining knowledge about the availability and range of services our area has to offer makes each of us a stronger ambassador for our communities.   Please join us for our next luncheon!
