IOTD Listening Tour

As the Indiana Office of Tourism Development (IOTD) begins building the Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC), we are looking to start a new framework for the future. This is an opportunity to garner feedback and gather input from tourism professionals, economic development leaders and community and local officials across the state. 


To help facilitate this gathering of information, IOTD have retained Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL)’s Global Tourism and Destinations team and Longwoods International to organize and lead listening sessions as well as help us develop an operational strategy for the newly authorized IDDC. The new organization will launch on July 1st of 2020 and with your help create a strategic vision that plots a new direction for Indiana’s tourism industry. 


IOTD wants to hear from you!  Obtaining input from our local destination partners and stakeholders is a critical part of this visioning and strategy process.

JLL will be facilitating regional listening sessions across the state. The goal of these sessions is to understand the needs of the industry, leverage what is already in place and bring in new opportunities. This will be used to help plot the course of the new organization.


We would like to encourage your attendance and participation in one of these listening sessions. Attached is a list of dates, locations and times so you can determine which session works best for your schedule. Please note: Space is limited.
