The award was presented as part of Pennsylvania Meetings + Events’ annual “Best of Pennsylvania” ceremony last week in Philadelphia. Other finalists included the Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau as well as Lackawanna County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
"We are proud of this accomplishment," said Norris Flowers, President of Destination Gettysburg. "This is evidence of the hard work of the staff, the board of directors, as well as the membership of Destination Gettysburg."
The meetings market – which encompasses conventions, conferences and events – is an important part of Destination Gettysburg’s marketing, the organization said. While Gettysburg is largely a leisure travel destination, meetings and conferences provide substantial economic benefits year-round and during the week.
