HHRVB announces new programs for their local tourism partners that are intended to encourage more destination branded advertising in local markets and encourage more collaborative marketing efforts among local tourism stakeholders.
New economic impact report shows the Top 7 Meetings and Events held in association with HHRVB's sales & client services generated an estimated $20 million for the regional economy and attracted approximately 76,000 people to the region between April – June in 2015 (Q2). Tourism Officials project the economic impact from events this July will beat entire Q2 numbers thanks to Mennonite World Conference & Mecum Auctions.
See the breakdown of the 2013 Economic Impact of Travel & Tourism Industry Report for PA, issued by the PA Tourism Office in January 2015, that showed a record year for visitor spending for the entire Commonwealth, the 9-county region known as PA's Dutch Country Roads, and for Dauphin & Perry Counties combined. HHR again ranked #4 for visitor demand.
