2019 is shaping up to be the year of conventions. Several, like the Battlefield Tattoo Expo and Greyhounds of Gettysburg, are annual gatherings. For others, such as the American Association of Community Theatre Festival, 2019 is the first time, or first time in awhile, that some of these conventions will be in Gettysburg.
Some of major groups include:
Destination Gettysburg's sales department has been working diligently with many of these groups for years providing free services such as consultations to determine what facilities/attractions meet the group's needs, recommendations and assistance planning tours and activities, site visits, proposal requests, vendor referrals and marketing and promotions. A popular service Destination Gettysburg offers to groups are Attendee Welcome Bags that include a travel planner, local transportation information, area map and discounts to local member businesses which are delivered to the venue.
These are big conventions that will have an impact on our member businesses. Shops, restaurants, attractions and accommodations need to be prepared to handle the amount of people that will be in town for the conventions throughout the year.
