NH Tourism Officials Expect Travelers to Make More Than 1 Million Visits this Winter

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

The New Hampshire Division of Travel and Tourism Development forecasts travelers will make more than 1 million visits to the state this winter and will spend more than $1 billion.  

“New Hampshire is the premier travel destination in the northeast throughout the year, but nothing compares to winter in the Granite State,” said Commissioner Taylor Caswell of the Department of Business and Economic Affairs. “During the winter season, visitors can experience world class skiing and riding, unique culinary experiences, tax-free shopping, and the beautiful scenery New Hampshire is known for.”

DTTD will launch its winter advertising campaign in early January, which targets the New England markets of Boston, Hartford, Portland and Providence, as well as New York, Toronto and Montreal.

To generate excitement for the skiing and snowboarding opportunities in New Hampshire, DTTD will display Powder Alert messages on social media and on digital billboards in key markets during snowstorms. DTTD will focus on skiing and snowboarding, family fun and snowmobiling as core winter activities, while also showcasing après ski activities and off-slope activities, such as snowshoeing, dining and shopping.

Thinking Outside of the Box to Attract, Retain Workers

With a mission to provide affordable assisted living services on New Hampshire’s Seacoast, John Randolph founded Harmony Homes, to assure elder citizens would be cared for with dignity and respect.

New Hampshire Business Matters airs at 2:05 pm, every third Wednesday of the month on WTPL-FM 107.7.

To do that, he knew he would need employees who shared his vision, and that he would need to meet their needs.

Next spring, he plans to break ground on a project to meet the needs of his workforce: Affordable housing and childcare.

Join Will Arvelo, director of the Division of Economic Development, on this month’s New Hampshire Business Matters to talk with Randolph about his plans to meet the biggest challenge to today’s workers.

Tune in here to listen.
