Representatives of the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce traveled to Missoula, Montana last week to participate in the 2014 Rocky Mountain International (or RMI) Roundup.
Buffalo, the smallest town to do so, hosted the 2012 RMI Roundup.
Rocky Mountain International (RMI) coordinates the international tourism activities for the state tourism departments of Idaho, Montana, South Dakota, Wyoming and North Dakota, according to their website.
The Roundup brings together the Chambers of Commerce and Offices of Tourism from these states with travel agencies in Europe and many other parts of the world, to highlight each state's attractions and present them to prospective travelers all over the world.
This year Rachel McCaughey, Assistant Director Of the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce; and Brittiny Morrison with the Buffalo Chamber; represented Buffalo at this year's RMI Roundup.
McCaughey said the RMI experience was fun but also productive for the Buffalo area.
McCaughey was asked if the Longmire television show has made Buffalo a bit more famous internationally.
McCaughey and the Chamber are expecting to see another increase in international tourist traffic in and around Buffalo due to their participation in this year's RMI Roundup.
