This summer Grey County took the opportunity to celebrate the operators, employees, suppliers, destination marketing organizations, sectors and others who contribute to our travel and tourism industry. The inaugural #TourismMattersinGrey campaign recognized not only the tremendous economic benefits this important industry brings to Grey County, but also the cultural and social contributions tourism delivers.
Grey County tourism businesses were encouraged to share compelling tourism related stories and Grey County residents were challenged to welcome visitors into their communities, and also experience and take in all that Grey County has to offer.
Some main highlights from the campaign:
1. Grey County Tourism Industry Website Revamp
2. Tourism Week Promotions
