Regional Cooperative Tourism Program 2017–2019 Biennium in Review
RCTP 2017–2019 Biennium in Review
The following is a synopsis that highlights catalytic and impactful programming and investments associated with the 2017-2019 biennium of the Regional Cooperative Tourism Program.
What is RCTP?
Travel Oregon’s Regional Cooperative Tourism Program (RCTP) dedicates 20% of the State’s Transient Lodging Tax (TLT) into regional tourism programming and activities across the state. There are seven Regional Destination Management Organizations (RDMOs) that leverage state dollars generated by the TLT along with private and public resources to work with Travel Oregon to bolster the state’s tourism economy. The RDMOs submit regional plans that include proposals for the use of state dollars for the Regional Cooperative Tourism Program (RCTP) which are approved by Travel Oregon based on specific metrics and accountability standards that govern the program.
Regional Strategic Tourism Management Plans for each of the RDMOs were developed in alignment with Travel Oregon’s strategic planning process, RCTP Guidelines and extensive input from regional stakeholders.
