Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau executive director Teri Schmidt said "we love attention for South Dakota tourism, and we know we have a lot to be proud of, this kind of attention isn't necessarily what we would hope for."
"Right now, I wouldn't say that we are concerned, we're watching it, because we don't know what's really going to happen," Schmidt said.
If they were to pull out, we'd feel really badly about that, we've not heard anything from them at this point," Schmidt said.
Schmidt hopes tourists still recognize the door is open to welcome everyone.
People know what a great product is here, so we have to hope that all that marketing and branding that's taken place over the years, will hold solid through this bumpy time," Schmidt said.
"Nobody wants to hear negative about the place they love, and have lived their whole lives, and work everyday to promote in such a positive fashion. There's so much good here, and so many good things that happen here, that when you hear something like this, it does take a stab at you," Schmidt added.

"I really can't speak to the press conference today because I didn't know anything about it," Sioux Falls Convention and Visitor Bureau Executive Director Terri Schmidt said.
Schmidt said she'd never seen the recommendations from the mayor's review board until KSFY emailed them to her.
"Never having seen it before until you sent it to me, I can say the majority of what they're talking about we already I think it's just a matter of having the opportunity to be able to communicate," Schmidt says.
Schmidt says throughout the six session the review committee came together, the CVB staff was only able to present their work for about 30 minutes.
"It was clearly a committee evaluating what we do and we had to sit and listen," Schmidt says.
The BID Tax was created in 2011 and Schmidt and other industry leaders say the new funding model for the CVB is making a big impact.
Schmidt says the CVB’s yearly budget is only generated by the visitors they bring to town.
“No money from the city of general fund or city sales tax comes to the visitor’s bureau; we are solely funded by the BID tax and the one percent tax that is paid only by people who stay in hotels,� Schmidt said.
Schmidt also says the BID tax funding plan was actually proposed by Sioux Falls hotel owners and other industry leaders and had little to do with Sioux Falls taxpayers.
Schmidt says the BID board will consider all recommendations as they plan next year’s budget.
