Rachel Wright, Destination Gettysburg's media relations assistant, joined the Pennsylvania Tourism Office's media mission in Toronto last week. Rachel pitched Canadian travel writers who were interested in not only Gettysburg's history experiences, but the countryside agritourism offerings as well.
More than 20 journalists were in attendance from Canadian travel publications including the Toronto Star, Canadian Living, the Toronto Sun and Canadian Travel Press. Rachel pitched the stories of authentic Americana and history experiences, things to do beyond the battlefield, culinary and beverage offerings, agritourism experiences, and unique accommodations in Adams County. In the next week, Rachel will follow up with the media that attended the event in hopes of continuing conversations and securing future coverage in their publications.
Pennsylvania Society for Association Excellence (PASAE) hosted the 2019 Educational Summit & Expo at the Wyndham Gettysburg on March 14-15. This event brought approximately 200 meeting planners, Pennsylvania association representatives and regional suppliers to the destination for educational sessions, exhibitor displays and the Taste of Authentic Adams County event.
Over the two-day event, Destination Gettysburg connected with associations and meeting planners to show them the benefits of hosting their events in Adams County. Attendees were provided with the opportunity to learn why Gettysburg is an ideal location to host an event, the leadership development and team building opportunities, unique venues for off-site events and fun things to do outside of the meeting.
A special PASAE event, the Taste of Authentic Adams County, provided Destination Gettysburg the opportunity to bring in food and craft beverage partners to give the attendees a taste of what the destination has to offer. A number of Adams County Pour Tour partners brought wines, ciders, spirits and brews to taste, and a handful of distinctive dining partners brought unique dishes for the attendees to enjoy. A local band was also brought in for entertainment so the group could get a sample of the ever-growing live music scene in Adams County. The event was a success, with approximately 100 attendees present and great feedback shared from PASAE, the attendees and the participating vendors.
