Juergen T. Steinmetz, Chairman of the ICTP, said: “We are proud to welcome Richmond, Virginia, as our third US destination member, after our two initial US members, Saipan and Hawaii. ICTP is an ideal platform to network within a global community. Being based in the US, we are thrilled that more US destinations are joining our organization. Our current international destination members include Seychelles, Komodo, La Reunion, Johannesburg, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Oman, Komodo and Grenada.”

Jack Berry, President and CEO of the Richmond Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau (RMCVB) said: “It is an honor for the Richmond region to serve as the first destination in the (continental) US to join the International Council of Tourism Partners. Tourism is vital to the US economy – this is evident every day in the Richmond region where tourism is a US$1.75 billion industry that employs nearly 20,000 people. We look forward to a continuous exchange of resources, ideas, and best practices with our global partners as we work together to invite visitors to experience all corners of the world.”
