Destination Gettysburg - the official destination marketing organization of Adams County, has joined with the Adams County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) and the Gettysburg-Adams Chamber of Commerce as part of the first collaborative marketing campaign to create awareness of Adams County outside the community and connect the resources of the three organizations with businesses looking to grow.
"Bringing in new businesses and new product is certainly a boost to tourism," said Norris Flowers, President of Destination Gettysburg. "The more successful that business is in Adams County, the greater that tourism will benefit through new experiences for our visitors."
The campaign stemmed out of a recently formed partnership between the three organizations and the Adams County Planning Office, Adams County Commissioners and the Gettysburg campus of Harrisburg Area Community College.
"This partnership is a unique opportunity for all of these community partners to work together to support our business community, and it's important for the future of economic development in the county," said Sherri Clayton, Director of the Adams County Planning Office. "We all want the same thing - communities where everyone can live, work and play. We are excited about this marketing opportunity and believe it can serve as a catalyst to help us achieve that ultimate goal."
