On Tuesday, February 6, Hudson Business Coalition and Hudson Development Corp. hosted the second in a new series of presentations and roundtables for the benefit of Hudson’s small business community. Session 2 focused on Tourism and it’s economic impact on communities, and featured NYSTIA president and CEO Bob Provost.
Bob spoke first about the economic significance of tourism within Columbia County, providing spending figures related to lodging and accommodations, recreation and entertainment, and food and beverage. Then, he cited several examples of major projects throughout New York State that were major drivers of visitorship and investment to their respective regions.
