Summit County Convention & Visitors Bureau grand opening Tuesday


The newly created Summit Convention and Visitors Bureau will open its doors Tuesday. To celebrate, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4 p.m. at the information center located in the Green Village at the Outlets at Silverthorne, Unit 246-V Rainbow Drive, directly behind Wendy’s. This new organization is dedicated to bringing group business to Summit County by connecting with its members so they experience all of Summit County in summer and winter. “We are so excited to be the advocate for an entire county experience for groups who come to Summit,” said Sharon Russell, CVB founder and president. “What sets us apart from more traditional CVBs is that, in addition to servicing groups who respond to our marketing, we intend to create group experiences as well, increasing group travel in that way.”According to a press release, the Summit CVB is focused on growing group business by encouraging travel during what historically may have been considered less busy times. Ultimately, the goal of the organization is to increase tourism as well as working to ensure the best guest experience possible for every visitor to Summit County.”In the coming months, we will be looking at countywide events designed to give the traveler a well-rounded Summit trip – and more reasons to return for another trip,” Russell said.”We are thrilled to have a partnership with the Summit Convention and Visitors Bureau,” said Dottie Montana, general manager of the Outlets at Silverthorne. “There are so many folks seeking information from us, and working with the CVB provides us yet another avenue for serving them the best way possible.” Community members and business owners are invited to attend the grand opening. Refreshments will be served and individuals will be given the opportunity to learn more about the CVB organization. For more information, call the CVB office at (970) 468-0353.
