IHTC photo 2With a regional vision now developed, most of the needed partners are at the table and an analysis of the current status has been completed.

Now, the larger group, technical advisers, and stakeholders will be brought together at IHTC’s 2016 Fall Summit to determine the next steps to implement that vision.

The goal at the Summit is to encourage and enable trail groups and managers to use the IHTC structure, vision, and network to their benefit and advance the implementation and visibility of the IHTC.

      1. Trail groups/managers working to build, maintain, and promote trails along the eight destination corridors.

      3. Economic development and tourism professionals
      4. Business interests in communities across the region
      5. Elected officials and decision makers
