Huron Tourism Operators Optimistic

The Huron Tourism Association celebrated an anniversary this week in Goderich with its 25th annual Brochure Swap.

Special Events Co-ordinator Karen Stewart explained the theme this year was incorporating social media into your advertising. Stewart maintains that a lot of people book their holidays online now, so it’s essential for a tourism operator to have a significant presence on-line.

Spokesperson Cindy Fisher says she’s optimistic about the 2014 tourist season. She says things like the value of the Canadian dollar and gas prices have some influence, but visitors come to Huron County for the attractions, and that doesn’t change with the price of gas or the value of the dollar.

Fisher urges Huron County residents to get a copy of the Huron County Tourism Guide so they can become ambassadors for the county and tell their guests about the attractions the area has to offer.
