Tourism prepares 2004 visitor calendar The South Dakota Office of Tourism is compiling a statewide calendar of events for 2004. Events that are of interest to travelers may be included in the calendar, free.
The calendar is posted to www.travelsd.com and distributed in a variety of ways to visitors, travel writers, group tour operators, in-state media and other members of the travel trade. An excerpt of the event calendar also appears in the South Dakota
Vacation Guide. It also is distributed to visitors at 13 Interstate Information Centers.
The Office of Tourism selects events that appeal to visitors, feature a variety of activities, capture a unique flavor of an area's geographic, historic or ethnic heritage and cater to a specific group or niche audience.
Event coordinators are asked to submit their events by Sept. 15.
