PHILIPSBURG- The Philipsburg Main Street Program recently received a donation of 26 avenue banners for downtown Philipsburg from the Central Pennsylvania Convention and Visitors Bureau. The banners were hung over the weekend by volunteers from Philipsburg.
The Philipsburg Main Street Program has purchased several other sets of street banners, which are sponsored by local businesses, organizations, and individuals, to be hung on Front Street and changed seasonally. The Central Pennsylvania Convention and Visitor Bureau banners will be a part of that mix and urge the public to “Tour, Roar, and Explore” Centre County.
The Central Pennsylvania Convention & Visitors Bureau is a nonprofit, membership-based organization committed to the fundamental principal that convention and visitor business can be attracted to an area more effectively through “coordinated group action” rather than independent action. The Convention and Visitors Bureau is, therefore, the county’s single, most important destination marketing organization, projecting an image for our area into various targeted markets. Cities and towns worldwide are represented and marketed as vacation and meeting destinations by Convention and Visitors Bureaus. The PRC has been a CPCVB member since 1999 because it provides a network of business professionals who understand that travel and tourism are vital to the overall wealth and economic strength of the region.
