Description

Harrison Price Company (HPC) was retained by the Cities of Bryan and College Station, Texas, the Bryan and College Station: Chamber of Commerce, Convention, and Visitors Bureau as well as the Bryan Business Council to study the current status of the tourism market in the area. Impetus for this effort was provided by development of the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum (GBL) scheduled to open to the public in 1997 on the campus of Texas A&M University (TAMU). HPC was charged with the responsibility of recommending a strategy for increasing the participation of Bryan/College Station in the tourism market generated by the Library and Museum in the future, provided market factors evidence such opportunity. The intent is to provide additional tourism infrastructure to cause visitors to stay an extra day or more, and if possible, to generate new destination tourism to the area.
