TourismOhio was approached by promoters of the 2015 AAA Great Vacations Expo to be a sponsor this year. This was the first time the State exhibited at this event. For sponsorship, TourismOhio received a 10’x20’ booth at the entrance of the venue. Iconic Ohio locations were featured on the backdrop, and a continuous video called “What Makes Ohio Cool?” played on monitors within the booth. The video, featuring many of the state’s great travel destinations, was also featured at the main stage.
Sister agencies were invited by TourismOhio to join in promoting Ohio. Many thanks to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Ohio Proud and Ohio Grape Industries for helping share the Ohio tourism story.
For the weekend, 152 individuals registered to receive the 2015 Ohio Travel Guide and 113 requested to receive the TourismOhio e-newsletter. The total attendance for the three-day event was 10,023.
