The Manahttan Area Convention and Visitors Bureau says the recovery from last year’s lack of visitors because of the pandemic continues.
Executive Director Karen Hibbard tells KMAN that, at the end of June, the hotel occupancy rate was 50-point-six percent for the year.
While the July numbers aren’t official, Hibbard did note that the final week of July saw another increase in the occupancy rate.
That increase, though, comes at a time that hospitality businesses are struggling to fill jobs.
The CVB along with K-State Athletics are working to promote the first home football game of the season. The “Refill the Bill” campaign means an increase the the amount of purple to be seen around the city in the next few weeks, according to Hibbard.
K-State’s first home game is the evening of September 11th against Southern Illinois.
