Destination Gettysburg’s president, Norris Flowers, was recently interviewed by Shelia Hyland in segment for Comcast Newsmakers where he discussed the economic impact of tourism in Adams County.
“Tourism is truly an economic driver in Adams County,” Flowers said. “We bring in almost 700-million dollars each year in direct economic impact, another 130-million dollars a year in state, federal and local taxes and employs over 77,000 directly in the travel industry in Adams County.”
In addition to economic impact, Destination Gettysburg’s marketing strategies through social media and traditional advertising were also discussed.
“You may not see locally what we are doing, but we are certainly promoting not only in Pennsylvania, but around the country and other countries to bring visitors here,” said Flowers.
