We are pleased to send you our quarterly sales and marketing newsletter that is designed to inform you of our activities. With the addition of Gail Perry as our new sales leader, we have been actively pursuing group markets that we believe are a match for St. Mary’s County.
Mission and Vision
As the destination marketing organization for St. Mary’s County, we strive to be a best-in-class organization focused on driving overnight visitation to the County. In order to achieve our goals, Visit St. Mary’s has refined its mission and vision to better serve the community.
“Inside Out” Marketing Campaign
Visit St. Mary’s MD, the destination marketing organization for St. Mary’s County, will be launching its “Inside-Out” marketing campaign for Leonardtown in late Spring 2019. This campaign is being designed specifically for Leonardtown to increase the visibility of town throughout St. Mary’s County and the broader tri-county region.
Welcome Gail Perry
Visit St. Mary’s is thrilled to announce the hiring of our new Sales Manager, Gail Perry. Gail brings to us many years of experience in hotel sales and working alongside of destinations to increase group sales and event sales. Gail looks forward to meeting each of you and working to promote St. Mary’s County like never before.
Event Based Room Nights
St. Mary’s communities do a great job in creating events and is well known for the Jazz Fest and the Oyster fests; the hotels and lodging facilities can take advantage of these happenings by creating a package that would include the event. Visit St. Mary’s focus is to increase overnight stays and have the visitors experience the cool things about our county and the hotels and accommodations play a main part. We have been working with many of the local events planners to come up with new ideas such as entertainment, new vendors and new venues to help promote these great events. Hotel packages help both the hotel and the local vendors and gives the guest the opportunity to experience St. Mary’s and stay longer: My favorite saying about St. Mary’s “The more I discover, the longer I want to stay.”
