Tourism Continued from page 60 with a 'rourism Industry on Pa- rade," which Everhart explained was designed to "put a face on tourism." Conference participants wore uniforms or clothing reflective of their day-to-day work require- ments or carded signs or company banners. BayStar Productions, Nicola Pizza, the Best Western Gold Leaf motel and the Ocean Outlets were a few of the Sussex County busi- nesses which participated in the conference. "We had a very good represen- tation from this county," Everhart said. The purpose of the conference was to solicit information from those in the tourism industry in preparation for the national con- ference, Small explained. A local paper will be presented at the na- tional conference, which is de- signed to educate policy makers about the importance of travel and tourism. "The results of the conference will be used to make recommen- dations at the state and federal level and as a basis for state plan- ning," Everhart said. States were asked to look at nine issues at the federal level. Those issues were research, tech- nology, infrastructure, product de- velopment, promotion, facilitation and reduction of barriers, educa- tion and training, environment and traveler safety. Participants at the conference met in focus groups to brainstorm concerns and recommendations on each of the nine subject areas. Everhart and Kay Wheatley, pres- ident of the Sussex County Con- vention and Tourism Commis- sion, served as industry expert and moderator, respectively, for the promotion focus group. More focus group sessions will be held this summer, according to Small. Small, of Lewes, will be respon- sible for representing Delaware's interests in the development of a national tourism strategy. In addition to Small and Wheat- ley, Delaware delegates who have been invited to attend the national conference in October include Gov. Thomas R. Carper; U.S. sen- ators William Roth and Joseph Biden; U.S. Rep. Michael Castle; Gigi Windley, director of the Delaware Tourism Office; K.C.
