Summer Quarterly Meeting
July 24-25, 2014
Newport News Marriott at City Center
Special thanks to our hosts in Newport News for an outstanding meeting!
We were treated to presentations on using social media in marketing by Christopher Newport University faculty member Dr. Lisa Spiller and some of her graduate students. That was followed by a tour focusing on how Newport News is using local museums to attract visitors. We returned to a sumptuous reception hosted by Newport News Division of Tourism.
Our second day focused on Dave Neudeck's presentation on using content marketing in local tourism followed by Esra Calvert's presentation which shared updated research by the Virginia Tourism Corporation.
Meeting presentation links are coming soon.
