Gorge Tourism Summit 2020

Thank you to all of the fantastic speakers for making the Summit so interesting and chock full of great info.

Each platinum sponsor was promised a special song performed by a local musician.
We thought it would be a matter of changing a few lyrics in a fun way but then
Brian Greely stepped up to write this fabulous original.
Please help us thank him by looking out for his upcoming gigs here:
He’s fantastic live.
