|Vidalia representatives attend tourism summit in New Orleans|
Vidalia Conference and Convention Center Events Coordinator Jenny Branton and Marketing Directors Glen McGlothin and Eddie Coleman attended the Louisiana Travel & Tourism Summit 2008 in New Orleans January 8-10.
"We got a very good response for the City of Vidalia," Branton said. "We met with a lot of people who have different types of meeting and conventions, some monthly and some yearly, who are very intersted in our facility. We are working hard at marketing the area and we plan on bringing more people to Vidalia."
The trio attended the opening reception at the newly remodeled Basin St. Station on Basin Street, which was sponsored by New Orleans Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau.
"We made several good contacts and enjoyed marketing our new Conference and Convention Center," Branton said.
The summit was comprised of several guest speakers as well as a marketing session targeted towards women. There were also several break-out sessions after the opening luncheon.
Roger J. Dow, President & CEO of Travel Industry Association was the keynote speaker and Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu was also in attendance.
The Vidalia group also attended the Louisiana International Marketing Update, Travel Trends Affecting Cultural and Heritage Tourism, and The ABCs of Internet Marketing breakout sessions.
There was also a Media Trade Show where the group met with several advertising possibilities for the city and conference center.
"On the final day we were able to market our new conference and convention center at the Louisiana Travel Fair and Reception.," Branton said. "We set up our new exhibit and had many people interested in booking our facility. They were amazed by the beauty and functionality of our facility. We came home with many contacts and leads. "
Amie Guillbeau of Prejean's Restaurant was quoted as saying, "Vidalia has the best set up out of all the displays. They truly know how to represent their community."
