    POSTED November 21, 2017
Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board has a seriously cool new product for connecting with meeting and event planners. Their brand-new tool kit offers a twist on the Rock-Paper-Scissors Game. “We wanted something universal,” said Scott Higgins, Associate Director of Sales. “The rock, paper, scissors game is a universal language. Regardless of your age, you know how to play it.”
Open up the box and discover three items: w a handwritten note, a visitors’ guide, and a clear message on how the VFTCB can help: 
• Rock candy – Get a solid start with Montgomery County’s 75 hotels, and 1,600 restaurants 
• A notebook (paper) – Stick out from the rest and make the event or meeting noteworthy 
• Scissors – Be cutting edge
“I love it so much, I want to steal it for one of our meetings!” said Caryn Taylor Lucia, from SEI’s Corporate Event Marketing. “We receive a ton of email, regular mail, and sales calls. But, this package stands out. It’s clever, thoughtful, and useful…this package gives you pause to want check out what (the VFTCB) has to offer.”  
Traditional programming remains and includes The Meeting Planner Rewards Program, which allows meeting planners to earn up to $3,000 for their next meeting with at least 50 room nights in Montco.
