Carly works for the Colorado Tourism Office. She’s responsible for promoting bike tourism in the state of Colorado and is the person who called Frontier Airlines (based in Denver) asking them why they charge extra for bikes.

Carly convinced Frontier that it makes good business sense to just treat bikes the same as other luggage and that’s what Frontier does as of last Wednesday.

Now in its 29th year, the North Charleston Arts Festival will take place April 29 through May 7, 2011. The nine day event is one of the most comprehensive arts festivals in the state, providing thousands of residents & visitors with a fabulous array of performances, exhibitions, and activities featuring national, regional, and local artists and performers.

Organized by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department, the festival strives to maintain the spirit of a community celebration with the mission of presenting a broad, multidiscipline event schedule that provides a wide range of performing, visual, media, and literary arts events for people of all ages and backgrounds. Many of the offerings are free, and those that are ticketed are moderately priced. Recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as a Top 20 Event, the North Charleston Arts Festival truly offers something for everyone.

Responsible Tourism Week 2011 – Die online Un-Konferenz: Mitmachen, mitreden, mitdenken

Die Woche des “Verantourismus” (Responsible Tourism Week) ermuntert zum Ausprobieren von bodenständigen und praktischen Anwendungen für edle Konzepte wie verantwortungsvollem Tourismus, die lokale Reisebewegung und Ökotourismus. Das funktioniert mittels einfach anwendbarer und kostenfreier Web 2.0 Technologien – und dem Hashtag #rtweek2011

The third global Responsible Tourism Week will be celebrated from February 13-18, 2011.

Responsible Tourism Week encourages participants to articulate their core values and the way they put noble ideas into practice. We spotlight living, breathing examples of responsible tourism. RT Week provides an opportunity to introduce new events, tours and research projects as well as an opportunity to summarize recent events. One of the key objectives of Responsible Tourism Week is to hear updates on recent tourism conferences and events and previews of upcoming events and to strengthen relationships with existing contacts and make new friends who share the core values of responsible tourism!
