Economy. ASTC hopes to lead new organizations that complement our culture, and natural resources. High quality hospitality and tourism organizations will generate more services to attract tourists. There are many positive side effects to this. Some are new families and retirees relocating to the region, and a greater likelihood of industry manufactures doing business in rural Appalachia. Please see the 4 things that ASTC is exited about to learn more about the potential.
Society. Many consumers and citizens are looking for more transparency and sustainability from organizations. We hope to help entrepreneurs create models that allow tourist to become stakeholders, which will create a better value exchange and help people become more connected.
