Local CVB leader to discuss tourism and destination marketing

Columbia County tourism has a major economic impact not only on the CSRA, but also on the state of Georgia, according to Shelly Blackburn.

Blackburn, Executive Director of the Columbia County Convention and Visitors Bureau, will serve as a guest speaker at the next CSRA Home Connections Networking Breakfast on Wednesday, April 13 at 8:30 a.m. at the Snelling Conference Center, next to Edgar’s Grille at the corner of Washington and Furys Ferry roads.

“Columbia County is growing and prospering, and Visit Columbia County plays a key role in that development by spearheading the effort of destination marketing,” she said. “Through successful destination marketing strategies, we help generate visitor spending, which supports many local businesses and jobs.”
