Tricia Ellis is busy adding content and photos to our newly designed website that is going live sometime in July. She is also mailing out the many guidebooks that have been requested during the COVID shutdown.
We are spending the remainder of our funding on advertising and marketing that you will begin to see in July, including a USA Today ad,
that we are finalizing this week. A lot of it will go toward 2021 since we are not anticipating we will have much to spend next year with all the cutbacks. Paula Fisher, Claire MacPherson and I are busy getting the best deals possible.
John Joyce has already begun working on the figures for our next MOTT application while finishing up the PCDC fiscal year. Georgia has done double duty between keeping the Destination Plymouth books while ordering all the new PPE supplies we need for the office and the visitor centers.
Don’t miss the joint board meeting at 9:00 a.m. on June 25, 2020. You will receive Zoom instructions for joining the meeting. We will have much to share with you, including where we are advertising, what we are doing statewide and regionally to promote our destination.
The following is bound to catch your eye this week. We begin with the latest travel intel from Destination Analysts. The hourlong updates each week are well worth watching. It begins with an open letter from black travel industry leaders to colleagues and the world. You will also find new, and a bit scary, information about COVID, advice about your dog, and a mind-boggling three-minute Rube Goldberg machine experience to take your mind off your troubles.
