“On account of how much I gained out of the 2016 Governor’s Conference, I jumped on the opportunity to register for this year’s conference! Last year was my first year attending, and I had no idea how much of a benefit I was going to receive! The contacts I made last year included members of the New Mexico Tourism Department who were helpful when I was researching the New Mexico True campaign, gained a valuable relationship with a New Mexico Magazine advertising representative who I still use and introduce to other marketing professionals today, and created relationships with NMHA and New Mexico Magazine members that resulted in Hobbs hosting the monthly Exchange event for the first time ever! I also gained a lot of information on submitting Rockwind for the NMHA Outstanding Attraction of the Year Award, which we ended up as a finalist. I’m definitely intrigued to see what the NMHA crew has planned for us this year!”
