The Lake of the Ozarks Convention & Visitor Bureau (CVB) Annual Dinner was held on Thursday, March 16th at Tan- Tar-A Resort. With over 300 attendees, it hosted numerous local business owners, community and organization leaders, Missouri State Representatives, Chamber of Commerce Directors and Missouri Division of Tourism Staff.

The 2016 Partner In Tourism Award was awarded to individuals that demonstrate leadership in the tourism industry. This year’s recipients of the Partners In Tourism Award are Alan & Judy Blair with The Landing on Main Street.

The Landing on Main Street is one of the Lake’s most popular shopping areas. It offers something for everyone, from clothing and shoes to art and entertainment. The Landing on Main Street offers awesome gift choices featured in many of the shops, delicious Ozark candy, eateries and much more. It’s also home to the Main Street Music Hall, featuring three different professional music shows throughout most of the year.

Tim Jacobsen, Executive Director, states, “It was an honor to be able to present the Partner In Tourism award to Alan & Judy Blair for all they have done over the years to provide quality entertainment and shopping to the people visiting the Lake.”
