AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Vacationland could always use some more tourists.

Expanding the state's tourism industry to help Mainers prosper is the subject of a two-day conference set to begin Tuesday.

Workshops will focus on a proposed electric vehicle corridor, making the most out of Google Analytics and best practices for social media.

Republican Gov. Paul LePage says tourism businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying careers for Maine residents.

Tuesday afternoon's activities include free business resource workshops at the Augusta Civic Center followed by a networking reception at the Governor Hill Mansion in Augusta.
