The tourism managers and working groups are asking for guidelines for business meetings

The tourism managers and working groups are asking for guidelines for business meetings

As COVID-19 cases drop and schools across California prepare to reopen, tourism officials say they are left in the dark not knowing when it will be safe to hold events again.

Tourism officials and labor groups are calling on California Governor Gavin Newsom to immediately issue guidelines clarifying under what conditions business meetings, events, and conventions can resume.

In a letter addressed to Newsom, tourism officials say California is losing business and jobs to other states “not just today but in 2022 and beyond because of the uncertainty caused by a lack of guidelines.”

In the letter, tourism and labor officials say that the governor’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy makes no mention of business meetings, events and conventions and no guidelines for safe future re-openings have been issued or even discussed by the Newsom administration.

In 2019 the tourism industry in California accounted for $66.1 billion in direct spending and 457,000 jobs.

“We’re not asking Governor Newsom to open California to business meetings and events tomorrow, we’re asking for a plan today so we can safely hold events in the future,” said Barb Newton, President & CEO, CalTravel. “These events bring more than just direct revenue and jobs. They bring people who spend money on hotel rooms, restaurants, local shops and services. The ripple effect is huge and benefits both large and small communities but we’re losing the benefits to other states.”

Tourism and labor officials say that the governor’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy makes no mention of business meetings, events and conventions and there are currently no guidelines for safe future re-openings.

“Potential clients looking to book events in California see this as a signal that California is closed indefinitely,” the letter to the governor read.
