Traverse City Tourism, founded in 1981, is a nonprofit focused on attracting conventions and tourism to the area and building the region’s economy. Trevor Tkach, executive director of the National Cherry Festival and Traverse City native, will step in as the new president/CEO of Traverse City Tourism.
I attended the PATT, Pennsylvania Travel and Tourism, conference in Harrisburg two weeks ago. It was a great event that brought together CVB’s, hotel professionals and media professionals at the Harrisburg Hilton. One of the takeaways from the conference was that PA has slipped from its status as one of the most-visited states in the U.S. It’s dropped to 6 on the list. What a shame! The state has so much to offer, which I was reminded of at every turn. Wineries, state parks with fantastic hiking and biking trails, art and culture in our major cities and our small towns.
