“It’s amazing to think that 2017 could have been even sweeter than the years before. But this past year has proven to be more than we could ever imagine,” Quinlan said. “Now is the time for us to build on this energy and show others why tourism is such a sustainable industry and so vital to our community.”

 

On Nov. 14th, the mixer and meeting took place at the Brickyard in Downtown Marietta. Every year, Cobb Travel & Tourism organizes this event to identify the achievements of the organization along with the hospitality community.
