Dawson chamber recognized for success marketing farm trail

The Dawson County Chamber of Commerce and Office of Tourism Development, along with the six other communities that make up Hospitality Highway, received the Bill Hardman Sr. Tourism Partnership Champion Award during the 2018 Governor’s Tourism Conference on Wednesday, August 29. The award is given to an alliance that collaborates to increase visitation and tourism expenditures in Georgia.

The Hospitality Highway partnership is made up of the destination marketing offices for seven communities along Georgia 400: Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Roswell, Alpharetta, Cumming, Dawsonville and Dahlonega. The award recognizes collaborative marketing to promote the Hospitality Highway Farm Trail.

The idea sprang out of efforts to promote local agritourism destinations by encouraging urban residents to visit rural areas that may only be open seasonally.

For more information and a copy of the brochure, go to dawson.org or hospitalityhighway.com. The Dawson County Office of Tourism Development markets more than 40 local accommodations, attractions, and restaurants and represents a greater than $40 million local industry.
