Travel Oregon has won many awards under Todd’s leadership. He is confident that working with Brand USA will further boost tourism from India and other countries.
Oregon, a popular US state, is keen to boost tourist arrivals from India so that the visitors can enjoy the many attractions and activities that the state has to offer.
Davidson said the state was a culinary delight for visitors, with chefs serving the best of seafood. Rafting, wind surfing, and wine tours were also attracting tourists from all over the world. There were over 25 golf courses to play, and visits and stays at the ranches were other possibilities as was tours of the 8,700 wineries.
