Education Session - "The Three Ts - Transportation, Tourism Development, and Tax"
Jeff Caldwell, Chief of Communications at VDOT, will present on Transportation funding, Congestion mitigation and Rail and Transit. Hear from Andy Edmunds, of the VA Film Office, about Motion Picture Film Production incentives. Get caught up on the latest legislative news regarding occupancy tax issues.

Field Study - Developing a Successful Wine Festival
This Field Study will examine how the Bedford Wine Trail, Bedford and Lynchburg Tourism programs and Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest partnered to create a new wine festival that was held in November of 2009. The result was a highly-successful event that attracted twice the attendance they had targeted to get for the first year. It also brought tourists into the region during a traditionally “down time.” This Field Study will include a brief visit to the site of that event — Thomas Jefferson’s private retreat, Poplar Forest, which he designed and built in Bedford while he was President.
