Coastal Mississippi Tourism CEO discusses future goals
The executive director for Coastal Mississippi has just finished her first year on the job and she’s looking forward to collaborating with local leaders to advance her tourism goals in year two.
Judy Young began working early last year and is looking to continue to promote our Coast as a tourism destination.
The goal for the upcoming tourism season is to get people to extend their stays on the Coast for business or leisure.
Another focus will be growing eco-tourism on the Coast.
Young’s longer-term goals are to continue building on some of the groups already coming to the Coast. “We are growing our sports tourism product and our convention and celebration group product. Sports tourism is huge in every area of the country. But specifically, for us, we are positioned in a great climate with a lot of space for facilities and expansion of facilities.”
