Jun. 19, 2008
Wisp Resort in McHenry is currently hosting a media tour for national and key regional journalists, who arrived yesterday and will be here through this Sunday.
Through Geiger & Associates, a national destination marketing firm, more than 20 travel journalists representing key regional and national publications, including Timber Home Living, Toledo Blade, Stone Magazine, Destination I Do Magazine, Cleveland Family, Cincinnati Family, US Airways Magazine, AAA Go Carolinas, Family Fun, AAA Home & Away, and others are visiting the area as part of an organized editorial research trip. The tour is designed to promote increased tourism to the area, and is a part of Wisp’s comprehensive marketing efforts.
“We are excited about having a chance to show this caliber of journalists the diversity of our offerings, and what truly makes Western Maryland a four-season destination,” said Karen Myers of Wisp. “Any resulting articles will help promote Garrett County.”
In addition to Wisp Resort, other local tourism industry members, including restaurants, state parks, and attractions, are hosting meals and activities for the media group. Tour activities will include exploring the area’s historic and cultural sites, shopping, family attractions, culinary and agritourism offerings, fishing, kayaking, and more.
