ITBEC-SW - The International Trade, Business and Economic Development Council provides participating counties in southwest Wisconsin with a mechanism to identify and formulate regional goals and strategies leading to improvements in tourism, economic development and exporting.

If you have ever visited a dairy farm, met an Emu, tasted a squeaky-fresh cheese curd still warm from the vat, got lost in a corn maze, or picked your own strawberries under the same summer sun that sweetened them then you've been involved in ag-tourism! With Agriculture and Tourism among the top revenue generators in Wisconsin, combining the two into "Ag-Tourism" makes good business sense and offers unlimited potential for growth.
