Following the announcement that the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is the recipient of the Governor's Cup at the 2015 Governor's Conference on Tourism and Travel, Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, issued the following statement:

"The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk truly is the centerpiece for tourism along the Grand Strand, and we thank the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism for recognizing its contributions to our tourism industry with this wonderful honor. One only has to walk along the boardwalk at any time during the year to see the positive impact it is having on the Myrtle Beach area. Each year, more and more visitors from around the world are discovering all the fantastic amenities and attractions the Grand Strand has to offer, and the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is certainly one of the top experiences these guests seek out."
