A Tribute to Tourism

Visit Santa Barbara invites you to join us for an afternoon of celebration, camaraderie, and community! We look forward to gathering again to honor travel’s abundance of positive impacts—from supporting jobs to generating vital tax revenues that help enhance the quality of life for all Santa Barbara South Coast residents. Let’s celebrate our industry’s resilience, vital community contributions, and all that we have accomplished together.

The program will feature a networking reception followed by a seated multi-course luncheon. We’ll pay tribute to National Travel and Tourism Week and recognize Visit Santa Barbara’s incoming and outgoing Board Directors. Keynote speaker Kevin Brown, best-selling author of Unleashing Your Hero, will inspire us with “The HERO Effect.” And all guests will be entered to win prizes and giveaways—our small way of saying thank you for all that you do!
