Local Chambers of Commerce are indispensable for tourism as they serve as a nexus between the community's assets and potential visitors. Their intimate knowledge of the local area, combined with their extensive network of business relationships, allows them to effectively market the unique qualities and experiences a destination offers.

 

By championing local businesses, attractions, and events, Chambers play a crucial role in creating a cohesive brand for their region that resonates with tourists. Their efforts in organizing and promoting events, providing visitor information, and advocating for tourism-friendly policies help to create a welcoming and vibrant environment. This not only enhances the visitor experience but also stimulates the local economy by driving consumer traffic to area businesses. Through their initiatives, Chambers of Commerce ensure that tourism remains a central, thriving pillar of their community’s economic vitality.

SCTTA's Chamber Partnership Program is designed to expand on the expertise of the local chamber by offering a set of tourism-centric tools to help local businesses navigate the specifics of the industry. At the end of the day, the larger network we build of tourism-ready businesses, the larger impact tourism will have on the local economy.
