All eyes this week on Cleveland as the Forest City hosts the Republican National Convention. Tourism professionals in Convention and Visitors Bureaus – CVBs (or Destination Marketing Organizations – DMOs) in Cleveland around northern Ohio are implementing some innovative programs to increase visitation in their destinations. We call them Tourism Best Practices.
The visitors bureau opened a social-media headquarters and launched a new hashtag — #AskCLE – designed to aid Republican National Conventionguests as they navigate the city. Visitors can pose questions using a variety of social-media outlets, including Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and others.
Tourism officials across the northeast Ohio region, have their fingers crossed that some of the economic benefits from the Republican National Convention in Cleveland will spill over to their communities.
Visitors to the Republican National Convention will be able to ride Cedar Point’s most popular roller coaster, hike the Hocking Hills and tour the Columbus Zoo – all without leaving downtown Cleveland.
