Tourism Week Starts This Saturday!

Posted on May 3, 2017

Baltimore Tourism Day is Saturday, May 6, and the Tourism Career Pathways & Resources Fair is Tuesday, May 9. We would like to thank all of our members and partners participating in both events – and special thanks to our co-presenting sponsor, Spirit Cruises! We also want to encourage everyone to spread the word to friends and family and on social media.

Information about the hop-on/hop-off bus routes, stops, and special deals and discounts for participating riders can be found on the Tourism Week website here. A Dropbox folder with logos, detailed stop information and special social media messaging can be found here for your promotional use. Additionally, if you see any participating riders with the Visit Baltimore lanyard on May 6, please give them an extra special welcome and let them know about the special offerings at your business.

Baltimore Tourism Day has been getting attention from the local media as well. The Baltimore Business Journal and the Baltimore Fishbowl
recently covered the neighborhood bus tours with information about why it is important to celebrate and promote tourism in Baltimore. Additionally, keep an eye out on WJZ, WBAL and FOX45 next week for promotional segments slated to air throughout the week.

And finally, don't forget to spread the word about the Tourism Career Pathways & Resources Fair on Tuesday, May 9, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Columbus Center. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in a career in the tourism or hospitality industry to network with potential employers and hear from inspirational speakers about their career paths.

Find a full list of participating employers and speakers here. Interested job seekers can register for free in advance by completing the registration form here or at the door the day of the event.
