GREENVILLE – Billed as a one-stop shop for everything related to
travel, the Fourth Annual AAA Travel Expo offered Central Ohio
consumers information and EXPO-only deals, along with the best-ever
travel values on everything from exotic cruises and European vacations
to affordable escapes close-to-home.
With more than 250 exhibits, attractions and events – including the
Darke County, Ohio / Wayne County, Indiana exhibit - the EXPO was a
destination in itself. Favorite travel spots came alive with
interactive events and experiences that were as entertaining as they
were helpful and educational.
“This was a huge show that we were very excited to be part of for the
second year in a row,” stated Executive Director and Tourism
Marketing Professional, Deanna York. “We are fortunate to be supported
by our area partners and ambassadors of our county. Their support
allows us to attend these shows. These tourism businesses are:
KitchenAid Experience Retail Center, The Winery at Versailles, The Inn
at Versailles, Garst Museum and Bear’s Mill.”
“Often times, we don’t realize what is in our own backyard,” continued
York. “It is inspiring to talk with people at these shows who want to
visit my hometown, learn the history of my ancestors and explore my
neighborhood. Interestingly, visitors make an impact on the economy of
Darke County. They eat in our restaurants, stay in our hotels, shop at
our stores, visit our museums, historic sites and attractions, enjoy
outdoor activities, and purchase gas in town. Tourism creates jobs,
brings in spending and pays taxes.”
