DED Nebraska Tourism Division offers tourism planning and community and attraction evaluation assistance

 

The Division offers a free tourism evaluation program to help Nebraska’s rural communities:

 

  • Develop and market their tourism potential
  • Realize their opportunities
  • Celebrate their strengths
  • Improve their weaknesses
  • Capitalize on their tourism potential

 

A local committee of individuals, groups, and organizations interested in promoting and developing tourism in the area is formed to complete the community evaluation form. This form helps local residents and leaders evaluate and objectively review their community’s past, present, and future tourism efforts. When the completed form is returned to the Division, the program coordinator works with local officials to set up a site-visit date to review and evaluate the community’s tourism potential. This visit normally is conducted soon after the form is submitted.

 

Once the site-visit is finished, the program coordinator writes a detailed report, outlining tourism marketing and development strategies that can be implemented so local leaders and residents can capitalize on the area’s tourism inventory. The report also includes a list of funding and technical assistance resources to develop and market local and regional tourism projects.

The Division also offers a similar new assessment program specifically tailored for tourism attractions called the “Tourism Attraction Assessment Program.” If you’re interested in this program, please contact Micheal Collins to determine if your attraction would benefit from an assessment. An attraction evaluation form must first be completed to be eligible for the program.
