Landon Howard turned to the man seated to his right Tuesday morning at a chamber of commerce breakfast and the two exchanged a high five.

Howard is president of Virginia’s Blue Ridge, the region’s convention and visitors bureau. His high five celebrated the chart projected on a big screen in a ballroom at The Patrick Henry that showed increased revenues through 2015 for hotels in the Roanoke metropolitan statistical area.

This was not news to Howard, but the chart confirmed publicly that efforts to promote tourism in the region seem to be bearing fruit.
