"Hickory is bustling with visitors and tourism makes a large economic impact in our community,” said Mandy Pitts Hildebrand, Chief Executive Officer of the Hickory Metro Convention Center & Visitors Bureau.  "I envision tourism to be even stronger in the future with the new public amenities like the City Walk, Riverwalk, Book Walk, updated sports fields, and our impressive arts and culture organizations and productions, as well as our evergreen science, art, historic, aviation and furniture museums and centers.”
