Central Oregon Selected as Site for 2007 Oregon Governor's Conference on Tourism

Bend, Oregon – The Central Oregon Visitors Association (COVA) and Sunriver Resort have announced that Central Oregon has received the winning bid to host the 2007 Oregon Governor’s Conference on Tourism April 15-17, 2007. The Central Oregon Visitors Association is the Official Host for the 2007 Conference and Sunriver Resort was selected as the host hotel for the annual convention that will bring more than 400 tourism industry delegates from across the state to Central Oregon next spring.

The announcement was made during the Oregon Tourism Commission meeting held in Eugene, Oregon on Sunday April 1. Planning for the 2007 convention will begin immediately. COVA has formed a Governor’s Conference steering committee to work with Travel Oregon to develop the agenda and itinerary of events for conference delegates.

"We are extremely honored that Travel Oregon has selected Central Oregon for the 2007 Governor’s Conference on Tourism", stated Alana Audette, president and CEO for COVA. "This conference will provide our region with the opportunity to showcase our exceptional destination to our tourism colleagues and industry professionals from across the state."

Three hotel properties supported the winning bid for Central Oregon, with Sunriver Resort receiving the nod from the Travel Oregon selection committee. "Sunriver Resort is privileged to receive the affirmation as the host hotel for the 2007 Governor’s Conference", stated Tom Luersen, Managing Director for Sunriver Resort. "As host hotel for this event Sunriver Resort will showcase the unique qualities and amenities that make Central Oregon such a premier vacation destination," continued Luersen.

The Governor’s Conference on Tourism is the annual convention of tourism industry professionals from within Oregon. 1997 was the last time that this prestigious convention was held in Central Oregon. The convention regularly moves around the state to allow for industry professionals to remain in touch with the diverse tourism product across Oregon.
