"Drew Hays is the sports sales manager for Visit Wichita, a job that he says keeps him busy doing what he says comes naturally — selling the city. Hays, also a member of the Wichita Business Journal's 2017 class of Emerging Leaders, works to bring sporting events to the city. Once an event is booked, it's Hays' job to help make sure organizers, participants and onlookers attending the event get the full Wichita experience. That includes everything from a visitor's hotel stay and where they might eat to making sure they see the best of what the city has to offer in attractions. At 29 and a resident of downtown, Hays also represents the quintessential type of young professional that city leaders and developers hope to attract to Wichita."
