Transportation from the Copper King Hotel & Conference Center will be provided as well as crossing escorts for those who prefer to walk the short distance.
The recently constructed new terminal at Bert Mooney Airport is the perfect site to host the reception to welcome attendees to the 2019 Governor's Conference on Tourism and Recreation. The spirit of travel and adventure will fill the 40,633 square foot space that was designed to reflect the historical charm of Butte, while providing the modern necessities that travelers desire.
Many historical figures made the trek through Butte throughout the years, and in 1927 history was made as pilot Charles Lindbergh landed the "Spirit of St. Louis" in Butte. Other notable visitors include: Charles Dickinson in 1927, Teddy Roosevelt in 1936, Thomas Dewey in 1948, Harry Truman in 1956 and Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
