The Tourism Department welcomed six national travel writers in Southeastern New Mexico during the 2018 Governor’s Conference on Tourism and Hospitality. Three of the writers participated in the second annual Travel Tank at Governor’s Conference serving on a panel of five judges. After Travel Tank the writers went on to explore Ruidoso, Lincoln, Artesia, White Sands National Monument, Carlsbad and much more.

The trip for the writers was a result of the proactive pitching by HUB Destination Marketing and NMTD.

A set of the writers from the group has produced an article about their New Mexico Road Trip.
