FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Nebraska Tourism Commission announces educational webinars for 2016

LINCOLN, NE (January 20, 2016)— For a second year, Nebraska Tourism will be conducting monthly and quarterly informational industry webinars. “We found the webinars in 2015 to be quite helpful,” said Nebraska Tourism Commission Executive Director, Kathy McKillip. “Each session gives those in the tourism industry a chance to stay up to date on events, marketing tools, programs and more, without having to make a trip across the state. The webinars are a great way to stay connected and a continuous way to share information.”

A full list of this year’s webinars are listed below, with the first scheduled for January 27 at 2:00pm (CST), which will be a quarterly update. The webinars will last about 1 hour and we will reserve time at the end for a Q&A session. An email address to send questions for the Q&A will be provided during the webinar.
