We are HOT! HOT stands for Hastings County Opportunities in Tourism. It is an initiative started by the Hastings County Economic Development Office to implement the County Council approved Tourism Master Plan.
What is our purpose? We help implement the Hastings County Tourism Master Plan Review Report (June 2016), assess our competitive tourism advantage and help Hastings County become a destination of choice.
What are the objectives? We are working hard to increase the number of annual visitors to Hastings County and increase the average visitor's spending to grow tourism receipts.
Below is a list of our priorities:
Hastings County Tourism Master Plan 2010 - 2014 Plan Review
Tourism Awards Celebration - featuring the annual HOTie Awards program
Tourism Awareness Week celebrations in 2012 & 2013
