Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa Honors Local Heroes National Travel & Tourism Week

Publish Date: 12-May-2017

Sonoma, CA Friday, May 12, 2017

Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa leaders joined travel and tourism professionals from across the nation to promote the impactful contributions their travel markets and organizations make to the U.S. economy during National Travel & Tourism Week. Established by a congressional resolution in 1983, this week of events (May 7-13, 2017) serves to champion the power of the industry.

Our communities are preserved and protected by unsung heroes who work tirelessly to keep the quality of life that the residents and tourists have come to expect in Sonoma County. To offer our appreciation and show support of their efforts, colleagues of Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa in partnership with the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau (SVVB) launched the first annual First Responder, Civil Servant and Public School Education Appreciation Day.  

Rick Corcoran, General Manager of Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa shares, “Tourism and hospitality is one of the largest industries in Sonoma County, our industry employs over 20,000 people, which results in an annual economic impact of $1.93 billion. This week aims to unite communities and celebrate what travel means to American jobs, economic growth and personal well-being. Efforts coincide with Faces of Tourism initiatives.” 

Earlier this week a special luncheon (and surprise spa gift) was delivered to teachers and staff at Adopt-A-School El Verano Elementary. Leaders also delivered locally sourced gourmet cupcakes to Sonoma Valley Fire Stations, Police Stations, City Buildings and County locations.
