Destination Gettysburg hosted a media familiarization tour (FAM) Oct. 10-12 showcasing Adams County's fall offerings, including apple picking in the orchards, the Adams County Pour Tour and the National Apple Harvest Festival. Travel journalists and influential social media users from New York, Philadelphia and the Washington D.C. area attended the three-day tour.
Destination Gettysburg's Director of Media and Public Relations, Natalie Buyny, and Media Relations Assistant, Rachel Wright, traveled to Richmond, Va., for the annual Mid-Atlantic Tourism Public Relations Alliance (MATPRA) Media Marketplace. During this three-day event, Natalie and Rachel pitched the many stories of Adams County to travel writers from across the Mid-Atlantic region.
Following Media Marketplace, Destination Gettysburg coordinated a visit for one of the journalist in attendance who was interested in Gettysburg's haunted attractions.
Many of the travel writers were interested in Gettysburg's holiday offerings, the Adams County Pour Tour, agritourism experiences and unique ways to experience Gettysburg's history. Over the course of the next few days, Natalie and Rachel will follow up with these writers to either set up media visits or supply additional information for future travel stories in their publications.
