About the Wyoming Office of Tourism

The Wyoming Office of Tourism (WOT) is the agency charged with bringing non-resident visitors to Wyoming by promoting the state as a vacation destination to both domestic and international audiences. The local tourism industry relies on WOT to create an umbrella marketing campaign, promoting Wyoming as an ideal vacation destination and positioning Wyoming against competitive brands as the destination of choice.

WOT Departments

The Wyoming Office of Tourism is divided into three departments: Brand Studio, Global Sales & Services, and Business Operations.  These departments work collaboratively to grow the Wyoming visitor economy, champion the destination and the brand, maximize the impact of our partnerships and ensure organizational excellence.

  • The Brand Studio continually strives to evolve the “That’s WY” brand into something that evokes an emotional connection and encourages participation with Wyoming’s culture, wildlife, and sense of adventure.
