Oregon Tourism Commission (Travel Oregon) > Web site
The Oregon Tourism Commission (doing business as Travel Oregon), created in 1995 and made semi-independent by the 2003 Legislature, drives economic growth and job creation by strengthening tourism throughout the state. The nine-member commission, appointed by the governor, provides leadership for Oregon’s tourism industry and guides Travel Oregon’s 36 employees, who market the state with inspirational and innovative advertising campaigns, publications, destination development and community enrichment, and manage the state’s Welcome Centers. Travel Oregon ensures broad economic impact by partnering with the seven tourism regions: Central Oregon Visitors Association, Eastern Oregon Visitors Association, Travel Portland, Travel Southern Oregon, Mt. Hood/Columbia Gorge Region, Oregon Coast Visitors Association and Willamette Valley Visitors Association.
Travel Oregon works to enhance visitors’ experiences by providing information, resources and trip planning tools that inspire travel and consistently convey the exceptional quality of Oregon. The commission aims to improve Oregonians’ quality of life by strengthening economic impacts of the state’s $9.6 billion tourism industry that employs nearly 94,000.
