Now more than ever, it is crucial for the tourism industry to work together to support one another in a common goal—showcasing the beauty and diversity of San Diego to economically benefit our region. The San Diego Tourism Authority (SDTA) is committed to not only helping lead the industry’s recovery but also assisting our Members as they retool and rebuild by providing valuable marketing and sales opportunities as well as the ability to collaborate with other industry and community partners.
Please help us welcome four new Members who have joined the SDTA family. These local businesses represent the growing variety of San Diego’s diverse dining scene. Be sure to reach out and say hello or welcome them at an upcoming SDTA event. Despite these economically challenging times, they chose to invest in our organization and in our tourism and hospitality community.
