Members of the Utah Board of Tourism Development have approved over $2.3 million in funding from Utah's Cooperative Marketing program. The board approved 52 of the 60 applications submitted to the Utah Office of Tourism by non-profit tourism entities in 19 counties, including county tourism offices, convention and visitors bureaus, festivals, and museums. "The Cooperative Marketing program has allowed us to expand the Utah 'Life Elevated' brand to more out-of-state visitors in additional markets," said Leigh von der Esch, managing director of the Utah Office of Tourism, an agency of the Governor's Office of Economic Development. "The program is now in its fourth year and sixth round of funding, and we're thrilled that we have been able to provide advertising monies to all but two of Utah's 29 counties."
