News from the Kentucky Tourism, Arts, and Heritage Cabinet

FRANKFORT, KY - Gov. Steve Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear will visit England next week to meet with British travel operators and media representatives to promote tourism in Kentucky.

Joining Beshear will be representatives of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet and convention and visitor bureaus in Louisville, Lexington and Northern Kentucky.>


"We requested the Beshears join us because with the Breeders' Cup coming to Kentucky and a Triple Crown winner from Kentucky, this is a great time to be telling international travelers about the Bluegrass State," Tourism, Arts and Heritage Secretary Bob Stewart said. "The United Kingdom sends the most overseas travelers to Kentucky and we want to help that market grow. A recent travel forecast from the U.S. Commerce Department indicates continued growth in international visitors through 2020."

Beshear plans to meet with journalists and others in the travel industry to promote Kentucky tourism, a $13.1 billion industry. He will visit Ascot Racecourse during the trip. The Beshears will arrive in England on Wednesday and return Sunday, June 21, 2015.
