Industry Newsletter - Oregon Coast Visitors Association

Industry Newsletter

Welcome to our industry newsletter page where we catalog stories about tourism industry happenings along all 363 miles of The People’s Coast.

Let’s face it, with such a long coastline it’s difficult to keep in touch and stay updated on what’s going on in other places along the coast.  The Tourism Update is meant to inspire and cross pollinate local innovation, disseminate useful information and analysis readers can act upon, and empower our audience to grab onto ideas and run with them.

This publication is produced every other month, contains one story from each region (North, Central, South) and one story with a coast-wide or state-wide perspective.

Together we can highlight the uniqueness of our individual communities while at the same time celebrate the fact that we are one industry, united, on The People’s Coast.
