The public is invited to a Cultural Heritage Tourism presentation by Cheryl Hargrove of HTC Partners on Wednesday March 1, 2017, 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Mt. Baker Theatre Walton Room, 104 N. Commercial Street.

An expert in the field of economic development and tourism, Hargrove’s engaging presentation will give an overview of the economic value of cultural heritage tourism, and kicks off a strategic planning project sponsored by the City of Bellingham and Bellingham/Whatcom County Tourism. Together with tourism stakeholders, the project will create an inventory and analysis of Bellingham and Whatcom County’s cultural heritage tourism resources and attractions, and will involve research and assessment of market trends and target market segments. The project will result in a strategic long-range plan, as well as recommendations for product development.
