Update: Feb. 14 – This interview is being rescheduled at Smith’s request. We’ll update this story when a new time has been agreed upon.

What’s ahead for travel and tourism in 2023? Just how bad or good was 2022 for the tourism industry?

Evan Smith, President & CEO of Discover Newport, will join What’sUpNewp for a WUN-ON-ONE conversation on Wednesday, February 15 at 10 am to answer those questions and discuss much more.
