Hamptons Visitors Council Says Cut In Funding Could Hurt Tourism Industry

A slashed advertising budget could sound the death knell for efforts to promote tourism on the East End, members of the Hamptons Visitors Council said this week, despite an uptick in hotel stays across the area that could signal a much needed boon in the tourism industry.

Faced with a stiff budget cut—the Hamptons Visitors Council received a grant of $20,000 from Southampton Town for 2012, not enough to apply for a matching $30,000 grant from the Long Island Convention and Visitors Bureau—the group has been forced to nix a good portion of advertising efforts this year. In addition, members no longer have the budget to attend travel shows and tourism conventions where they usually promote the East End. The group received $35,000 from the town last year.
