B M & T ••• November/December ••• 4 As we wind down to the end of this most challenging year, please let me take this opportunity to wish all of our readers and industry colleagues a joyous holiday season. And here's hoping that 2022 will be the best year ever, with travel returning to pre-Covid levels and even higher. For starters, I am happy to report that Black Meetings & Tourism, along with our LLC partners KKD Tourism Advisors and WorkMerk, are making great progress on producing the long awaited New Green Book For Travel digital direc- tory. The NEW Green Book LLC is dedi- cated to establishing and maintaining a convenient service directory for domes- tic and international visitors to destina- tions throughout the U.S. and some locations beyond. This easily accessible, state of the art tool provides all travelers with helpful information to enhance their journey in every way. Additionally the NGB offers all travel- ers the opportunity to enrich their experi- ences by serving as a resource guide fea- turing enlightening information concerning African-American culture and heritage in those destinations.

As part of our campaign to promote The New Green Book For Travel, Black Meetings & Tourism will be exhibiting again this year at IMEX America at the Mandalay Convention Center in Las Vegas from 11/9 to 11/11. Much of our booth signage and literature will be devoted to spreading the word about The New Green Book for Travel, including information about the "Win A Trip To Miami" contest to attend the NGB launch in the first quarter of 2022. Anyone inter- ested in entering the contest can stop by our IMEX booth, or check out your latest issue of the BM&T e-newsletter, scan the QR code, and complete the survey for your chance to win this free trip. For additional NGB information, visit and meet the team. There are many partner- ing opportunities to make sure your des- tination, hotel brand, attraction, etc. is included in this new digital directory. Based on the feedback we have received so far, the New Green Book For Travel will quickly become an indispensible tool for all travelers. So be sure to get on board and join the movement!
