2018 Annual Conference On Tourism

The drivers of tourism come from all directions. Across the nation... or next door. This year the 2018 Annual Conference on Tourism celebrates Hollywood! And the impact Hollywood has on tourism.

Since 2009 the Cleveland film industry has generated over $400 million dollars in the general Cleveland communities. The film industry touches the private sector through car and equipment rentals, restaurants, hotels, Home Depot, and local commerce sales. In fact, each film producer is incentivized to utilize local vendors to take advantage of local tax incentives. Tax dollars that go right back in to our community.

This year the Lake County Visitors Bureau is excited to welcome Ivan Schwarz President & CEO of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission, David Keltz as Edgar Allen Poe, and Kim Riffle of A Christmas Story House and Museum.

Bring your camera (phone) as you will want to take lots of photos... Including a photo at the Lake Health Red Carpet!

We also thank Skye Bistro, the Best Western Lawnfield, and Doc Howard’s Distillery for their continued support.
