Thank you for attending yesterday's kick-off luncheon for the new RVA Tourism Partners. We hope you enjoyed the event and the wonderful food provided by Capital Ale House. As John D. Watt mentioned, if you have any thoughts or ideas for future luncheons, please don't hesitate to let us know.
As the team members at VHTA also discussed yesterday, we would like to invite you all to attend our 2015 Commonwealth Hospitality Forum in Williamsburg. More information about this half-day conference and reception are below. We hope to see you at the Williamsburg Woodlands Resort & Conference Center on September 1.
Don't miss this opportunity to join restaurants, hotels, and more from around the state for an afternoon of learning and discussion on important marketing topics. We'll be joined by a variety of industry experts to talk about everything from digital marketing trends to modern revenue management.
Plus, we'll cap off the evening with a wonderful reception and silent auction benefiting Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry. The reception will feature all things Farm-To-Table—giving you the opportunity to sample some of Virginia's best local ingredients paired with local craft beer and wine and chat with chefs about marketing and sourcing this fresh fare.
