Destination Gettysburg has announced a new addition to their team.

The CVB hired Aimee Reif as its new group sales manager. In her role, she will work with group travel planners to book trips to Gettysburg and Adams County.

“Aimee brings a wealth of experience in working with group tour operators and group travel leaders,” says Jenny McConnell, director of sales, Destination Gettysburg. “We’re excited to have her on board and grow this segment of travel in Adams County.”

Prior to her new role, Reif was senior tourism sales manager with Valley Forge Convention & Visitors Bureau in Montgomery County, Pa. She also has worked as sales and marketing coordinator with Embassy Suites Valley Forge and with the American Bus Association as its communications coordinator.

“I am excited to be a part of Destination Gettysburg,” says Reif. “Adams County offers a variety of one-of-a-kind tour experiences, and I am looking forward to working alongside Destination Gettysburg members to drive more business into the area.”

Atlantic City

Last year was the highest grossing ever for the United States commercial gaming industry.* Meeting planners who hold gatherings at casinos may just feel like they’ve hit the jackpot, too. Casino-based events provide one-stop convenience—the amenities of convention centers and bountiful hotel rooms, plus activities, dining, and nightlife. 

 

Doreen Guerin grew up an Air Force brat, living in Texas, Louisiana, and later England and France. When she was 13, her parents moved to Queens and, Guerin says, “I’m a New Yorker through and through.” That’s apparent from her accent as well as her dedication to the Javits Center, where, as the senior vice president of sales and marketing, she oversees the booking and event-related operations for more than 170 events each year.
