Members of the Laurel Highlands Visitors Bureau staff recently traveled to Harrisburg to impress upon state officials the importance of the tourism industry in this region.
Marketing manager Kristin Ecker, and Christina Dorko, marketing and public relations assistant, represented the bureau at a rally and expo in Harrisburg on Thursday to support Pennsylvania Tourism Day, an event held every spring.
“It was to stress the importance and raise awareness of tourism and the economic impact it has on the state,” said Ecker.
“It’s a great way to get everyone excited and to reinforce why tourism is important to the economy of Pennsylvania,” said Dorko.
The rally included speakers who talked about the broad impact of tourism on the economy.
