40 travel writers to see what Erie has to offer

ERIE, Pa. — When travel writers visited Gettysburg for three days in 2005, they produced more than 80 stories about the Civil War battlefield and related pieces over 18 months.

VisitErie, Erie County’s tourism promotion agency, hopes for similar publicity about Erie when 40 travel writers, including nine from Canada, and representatives of 48 travel promotion groups see Erie on Sept. 23-25.

VisitErie will host this year’s Mid-Atlantic Tourism Public Relations Alliance Media Marketplace, a three-day event that will feature tours, receptions and interaction between travel writers and Destination Market Organizations, which are groups that promote their destinations.
