Strategic Marketing Group Releases 5th annual Tourism Outlook Whitepaper

South Lake Tahoe, CA – While many look to the New Year as a celebration, the Strategic Marketing Group (SMG) sees it as a time for reflection, as well as publishing its annual Tourism Outlook.  It has just released its 5th annual Tourism Outlook whitepaper, a comprehensive review of relevant economic and travel industry data as it relates to the California tourism industry.  Carl Ribaudo, President of SMG, also includes insights and personal observations from his extensive work with DMOs throughout California.

“The Outlook is our take on the tourism industry as we move into the new year, including both the good and the bad,” notes Carl Ribaudo. “This is our gift to the tourism industry, and we hope it is useful as DMOs plan for 2012.”

The Tourism Outlook is a must-read for any destination marketing executive.  It includes a wide variety of information including federal and state level economic data, airline, lodging and other pertinent travel data, along with SMG’s robust analysis and forecasts.
