Today’s freshly brewed Tourism Heads & Their Tales podcast is a first. I have the pleasure to interview Julie Gilbert CDME, President & CEO of Destination Door County. You will notice the same last name, and yes, Julie is my wife. Door County has a population of 30,000 and gets about 2 million visitors each year. Listen as Julie discusses the significance of transparency with stakeholders and residents while also working with complex tourism organizations within 19 distinct municipalities. Hear how she is overseeing the transition from “heads in beds” to destination stewardship, and sustainable tourism in a shared values environment. Discover how Door County communicates the value of a Visitor Economy with residents, business owners, and stakeholders. Listen to new initiatives introduced that benefit both visitors and local residents. And hear about Barbie’s appearance at ESTO! All this and a lot more.
