“The research really put us on the right track,” Jenkins said. “I don’t think we could have done what we did without the research.”

The outstanding last two months have been fed in part, Jenkins said, by an increase in international tourists from Europe and Great Britain. Jenkins noted two men from the UK who came on vacation and stayed for the recent Songwriters Festival.

The “shoulder season” is strong in other key ways.

“I also have heard from partners that they are able to keep their workers on, they are not having to lay off as much,” Jenkins said, adding that jobs are as important in her bucket list as heads in beds.

  Jenkins said she also pleased with the informational kiosks built by county maintenance crews and placed at eight parks around the county.

She also emphasized the face time her team – staff grew as Jenkins took nearly all functions of the TDC in-house – devotes to getting out in the community and “talking to people and our partners.”

“That has been very important,” she added.
