“The update to the Montgomery County Tourism website was essential due to the popularity of current technology. There has been in an increase in mobile device usage for making travel decisions and search engine rankings have been reconfigured to benefit mobile-friendly sites,” explains Gina DaBiere-Gibbs, Director of Tourism. “The site highlights attractions, lodging and dining, events and so much more and is easily accessible from a desktop, tablet, or smart phone. It is informative, fun and concise.”

The site, designed by Chamber Member Shannon-Rose Design, gives attractions and tourism-related businesses the opportunity to promote their sites at a critical time when people are looking at ways for cost-effective promotion. An additional feature of the site is the capability to continually and easily add information, change content and add current events to the calendar. “The tourism community is invited to add their events which are utilized in our event email blast, local publications, the I LOVE NY website, and social media platforms,” continues DaBiere-Gibbs. “The site is a tool for visitors and residents and the more information that is posted, the better we can promote Montgomery County and our attractions.”
“Tourism is an important economic driver in Montgomery County and one that I want to support and help flourish,” said County Executive Matthew L. Ossenfort. “The history and heritage of our area helps create some of our best tourist attractions.
