The 2023 Utah Tourism Conference was highlighted by an inspirational performance from BMI pop singer/songwriter Tyler James Bellinger, who entertained an audience of more than 400 hotel executives and other leaders from the state’s hospitality & tourism industry. This year’s gathering was held in St. George, which is where most tourists stay when visiting Zion National Park, one of the most visited parks in the US. The annual meeting is hosted by the Utah Tourism Industry Association and provides opportunities for industry professionals to network as well as learn about the latest trends and developments impacting tourism. Bellinger has amassed over 40 million streams on Apple Music and Spotify and is best known for his appearance on season two of NBC’s Songland. The New Jersey native, who currently resides in Nashville, has collaborated with the likes of Robin Schulz and Kenny Loggins and has had his songs appear in commercials for Guiness as well as the current Pepsi campaign.
