KTC Registration Grant Program

The 2020 Kansas Tourism Conference Registration Grant program is designed to assist Kansas tourism organizations in the cost of attending the 2020 Kansas Tourism Conference, Oct. 19-21, 2020 in Liberal, KS.

2020 was a year of unprecedented challenges for the Kansas Tourism industry. The Kansas Tourism division of KDWPT realizes that these challenges have budget repercussions that will limit the ability for our tourism partners to gather this October at our annual tourism conference. This year, more than ever before, it is imperative that we join together to provide support and expand our recovery education.

Kansas Tourism as identified up to $35,000 in their budget to provide a grant to cover registration costs of our Kansas tourism partners to attend the annual conference to 2020.
