Visit Austin just wrapped its sixth annual Airstream tour, which included stops in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and New York City to promote Austin’s adorable weirdness. “The road trip was a chance for us to take a sample of Austin on the road and show other markets what we have to offer in our city,” says Tom Noonan, president and CEO of Visit Austin. “This series gave us the opportunity to promote the culture, music and creativity of our city.”
President and CEO of Visit Austin, Tom Noonan, has been nominated to serve on the Board of Directors for both the American Society of Association Executives and Destinations International. The nominations are in addition to his current service on the U.S. Travel Association Board of Directors. Noonan has also served on the board for the Association Forum.
