With tourism booming in La Crosse, RAH members get an update on the numbers
Deb Carlson and Anna Baughman of Explore La Crosse (the La Crosse County Convention & Visitors Bureau) gave a presentation to the Club at February 25th's meeting. The topic of the presentation was the impact of tourism.
Statistics were shared regarding the steady increase in visitors and dollars spent by visitors in Wisconsin. La Crosse County ranks 9th out of 72 counties in the state of Wisconsin in total dollars of visitor spending. 
In addition to data and statistics, club members learned about the inner workings of Explore La Crosse and the role Explore La Crosse plays in booking and promoting conventions, sporting events, and other events in the area.
